    We have to treat our yard for fleas and DE isn't an option. We have to spray but our hens spend most of their time in the yard. How long after spraying can they be let in the yard again? Should we avoid using their eggs for a period of time?

    Depends what you used.Do a search for the MSDS on the product.Atleast 24 hours.

    As for eggs,it might be good to toss for a bit.Whatever makes YOU feel better about it.It all depends on the fleas product used.

    Best wishes and I hope you were able to kill the fleas.I hat fleas and ticks!
