    Well, long as I have to order the wormer I might as well get lice/mite preventative as well. I've not noticed anything external parasites, so what should I use to make sure I don't get any- sprays, powders? ? ? We are in short supply of dust around here- SE AK is a rainforest. Do I even need anything? [​IMG]

    You might want purchase some sevin dust to have on hand just in case. Walmart has it, about $10 for the large canister. (Here where I live)

    Isn't that a touch toxic? Is it in the garden section or the pet section at WM? We have a WM here but I don't go in there very often- although I should, perhaps I can even get some People of WalMart pictures! Or I could go dressed as a chicken! [​IMG]
