    Hi I've read about sevin and was wondering can I put this powder directly on my birds or just on the runs? Also this is the same powder I use in the garden? Thanks for your time and help. Crazy Feathers

    Yes put right on the birds. Garden dust did not work for me. Try not to get it on their head. I use a foot from pantyhose and fill with sevin. I wait and dust at evening when they are roosting :)
