    A lot of the sprays that are bought are grocery store are not safe for animals. I would pick up something from the feed store. I would be more confident in the product being safe and actually working.

    I use either the permethrin 10% that you mix with water and spray on them------they give directions for each type of animal, or I sprinkle sevin dust in their pen that they can dust themselves with.

    I also use DE to dust my chickens. It is supposed to kill mite and lice.
