    I was given a pair of black leghorn bantams and they can with a really bad case of scaly mites.
    soo I am trying to get rid of them and clean the coop.
    I have them out of the coop in a diffrent house with vaseline on there legs and I sprayed the coop and pen with permectrin II.
    long story short how long should I wait before putting them back in?
    And am I doing it right?? [​IMG]

    I have no idea how long you should wait, but I seen products on the shelf at my local tractor supply that gives you detailed info on what to do.
    Good luck

    cant just clean the coop to get rid of them since they already have it since you got them. You need to clean it with red kote, since it his Scarlet Oil in it, it should do the job.
