We had an outbreak of something - mites, I suspect. I have bites on me as well. I dosed everyone with a few drops of Eprinex pour-on, cleaned out the coop and sprayed everything with permethrin 10%. I saw no evidence of bugs at all, but my bites are gone now and the birds don't seem to be 'preening' as much. My questions: do I need to retreat? Assuming these were mites, when? Just the premises or the birds also? Do I need to withhold the eggs for eating? All help is appreciated - thanks!
