    I see that now. [​IMG] And will definitely remember it! I am our finance manager and it all adds up... to chicken math.... [​IMG]

    I use things sparingly so still have most of the original bottle, no horses though. I actually used it on one of my dogs because for some reason the mosquitoes just LOVE her!

    Flies were bad a week ago, so I made a super concentrated batch to spray on the places the flies were at, and it really seemed to help.

    Thanks so much for sharing this! It's on my shopping list for next time I go to the feed store. I don't have mites/lice now, but I want to be prepared, and I have one coop that's overdue for a general cleanout and will probably spray it down at that point.

    Might be some place cheaper than the feed store to buy it. [​IMG]

    At 10 mls (two teaspoons) per 1/2 gallon of water in the sprayer, that's CHEAP! My friend and I haven't used up that first half gallon of spray yet, either, between our two coops. Mary

    That is cheap. I don't quite consider TSC the same as a feed store. Their prices are usually better and they are a lot more like a farm home depot.

    Wish I had a TSC in driving distance... [​IMG]
