    How do you dilute the Malaban wash for Stick Fast fleas? Do you spray the chickens as well as the fleas?

    Mix 15 mls of Malaban in one liter of water.

    The company has not approved it's use for being applied directly onto the chickens. The active ingredient in Malaban is Maldison. It is approved to be swabbed on cats and dogs. In powdered form it is used directly on birds. The company has not tested their liquid product on birds. This is the reason they haven't approved it. They are selling tons of it to the dog and cat owners. I have friends who raise gamecocks and they have been using Malaban wash on their chickens for years. It is approved for use in aviaries and in coops.

    If I were to try it, I'd do a quick spray, wipe 'em off a little and cut 'em loose. I also might would use a little more dilute solution and repeat in 10 days if necessary.
