Hey all, so I’ve been having a VERY difficult time ridding my coop/flock of mites. I have sprayed diatomaceous earth in the areas they most like to bathe, and I spray the areas where the mites seem to be hiding within the coop with a water/vegetable oil/soap mix. While this mix does seem to be killing them, I don’t feel it has a lingering effect. I’m nervous about using chemicals but I’ve seen MANY posts that mention sevin dust? I’m also concerned about not being able to consume any eggs for a period of time. This infestation is actually giving me nightmares and is weighing on my mental state something awful. Please, any input?
