    You should see improvement within a few days. Keep in mind that the primary purpose of ivermectin pour on is a wormer. It must be placed on bare skin, on the back of the neck. You'll need to treat the inside of the coop to treat mites there as well, nests included. I recommend using sevin dust.

    Yes, DE is all natural - diatomaceous earth. Sevin, while most of its volume is comprised of inert ingredients, is a chemical pesticide.

    Sevin dust contains 5% carbaryl, a chemical. DE kills by dessication.

    Do you have to with hold the eggs for ten day using invermectin pour on? If you do what if you do a rooster who mates a female?
