    Has anybody ever used Ivomec Eprinex?
    I just did, I used it on my chickens 2 days ago and today I checked them and the lice still there nothing has happened to it. My question is, how long does it takes to see results?
    Thanks

    I use it on my chickens and have never had a problem with lice. Did you treat the coop? I wonder if the lice were killed on the chickens but just were replaced by the ones in the coop.

    I recommend sevin dust. Dust your chickens, inside their house and nests. Redust everything again in 10 days.

    Is it lice still there? or is it the nits (eggs)? It will kill the live bugs but the eggs are still stuck there.

    It's odd that they are still alive. Could they be from the coop as was suggested? Did you treat it too?
