    I use flea spray intended for dog bedding. Kick the birds out for the day and let it dry before they can go back in. I have the powder too, but I put it in a condiment squeeze bottle. Don't like the idea of breathing that stuff in too much.

    First year the mites [​IMG] were horrible, I put a drop of Frontline (for cats) on each Serama. Frontline doesn't kill fleas anymore, but it works great on evil mites. [​IMG] Lady at a Serama show told me about that. No ill effects for the birds, and it's much easier than the dust.

    I know they say your not supposed to but I dust my birds with it when they get lice. I absolutely hate bugs.

    Does it still say for chickens on it too? What brand do you use. They looked at me like I had 2 heads wherever I asked. I was looking for it for a friend's beans and the one she tried that didn't mention chicken didn't work either. It's been a few years ago.

    Why is that? Mine never cared much for me. She is gone now so I don't have that problem anymore. Just can't understand it. My mom loves all of her daughter in laws & son in laws. Marriage is hard enough without someone always stirring the pot.

    I've used seven dust & one called a poultry dust (really struggled to get the lice killed with the latter though)
