    Does anyone know what the dosage/mix would be when using a sprayer with the cattle Ivermectin pour-on liquid for a coop cleaning? I can't seem to find a thread with the info...

    BTW, guess what I'm going to be doing this weekend? [​IMG]

    So you don't think I should use it at all? I was thinking that I might just put it in a spray bottle full strength and spray the walls and roosts, floor, cracks & crevices, etc..... (Of course the chickens won't be in there when I clean it.)

    Isn't that stuff expensive? I had to clean my coop when my perches were shot 1/2 inch to close to the wall. I bought some ag. cleaner at Meyer hatchery.

    I have NEVER heard of anyone using ivermectin to spray their coop...too expensive and a waste. You can use liquid sevin, follow directions on the container or what ChickensAreSweet recommended. A bleachwater solution will work just as well. Ensure the coop is ventilated.
