I was going to post this picture:
until I zoomed in on it!
My ducks get that. I need to treat them for lice. Such a beautiful picture until those parasites get in the shot. Damn lice
Have you used DE (Diatomaceous Earth) before? Might help you:
I know, right? Gotta get back out there and treat him!
Yeah, I tried it and it doesn't work. Will treat him with ivermectin, that works in less than 24 hours.
Have you tried elektor? I want to but it is too expensive
I’m wondering if a teaspoon of Permethrin in a filled water spray bottle is ok to treat external parasites on ducks. You can use it on pigeons but I’m just not confident with it. Because it is an insecticide I’m just worried if the birds preen they will get poisoned or something.
Too expensive for me too, but it's supposed to work really well.
It's fine for ducks, but hard to get it on the skin because of the down.
One or our Faculty here bough some last year. I was hoping to get part of it from her...Oh well! I have used the generic from Amazon--captain jacks but I could not get a member to try it--said they did not trust a garden pest product and the inactive ingredients were not easy to find.
It did a great job as coop spray and spraying the hens. I did not use it as a systemic though
