Not an emergency as such, but this year lice have been terrible! I have 40+ birds so dusting is a royal pain in the b***.
I am reluctant to use fipronil (Frontline) for the cost alone. Has anyone used a product called Avian Insect Liquidator? It contains permethrin, piperonyl and methoprene.
None of these ingredients are toxic to chickens - so what are your thoughts and experiences?

I’ve never had lice or mites in my tiny flock but to prevent it I am constantly cleaning the coop once every week and spreading diatomaceous earth all around and sometimes even a little bit on my chickens if they’re in the way.
