So I’m going to treat my flock with Martins Permethrin 10 % for a lice outbreak. I need some advice on how much to treat each bird with. This is my first time using this. I am at my wits end and desperate! I had tried poultry dust, diatomaceous earth, avc, herbs, sevin dust. I don’t know what else to try! I get the outbreak under control but then it happens again.
I empty the coop, take out all the bedding, sanitize the roosts, nesting boxes, spray the coop down with vinegar, sprinkle the edges, roosts etc with poultry dust. Add DE to the feed, nesting boxes. I have researched books, google, Pinterest.
I have 1 month old chicks up to 2 year old chickens I need to treat with the Pymethryn.

Don't despair, lice are no real danger to your chickens and can be easily transmitted by wild birds etc. Or do you mean poultry mites, the blood sucking kind? They would be indeed dangerous for your chickens.

Can you post a picture for us to see what you are really dealing with?

When I bought new birds that came with lice, I treated them with Advantage ( dog and cat flea meds) which is over the counter. I know it treats lice in dogs, so gave it a try and it worked well. 0.1 ml/ kg) Safer than permethrin . I can't help with a dose of the stuff you got
