    I am going to use this on my birds after I use Wazine. I just wanted to know what exactly it will kill... leg mites, mites, lice, tapeworms? Does it do everything?

    Oh and the injectable will work by dropping on the skin, right?


    Thanks!

    Ivermectin will kill most lice/mites. Ivermectin kills most worms, except tapeworms. I dont know if injectable can be used as a pour on, I doubt it since they sell an actual seperate type of pour on. I'm not sure if it will kill scaly leg mites.
