I have read where many people here say they use Sevin Dust to control mites and lice in the coops and even on the birds. I am so lucky to have a lady who lives next door to me that boards dogs for a living. She keeps everything very clean but she and I both have a horrendous flea problem. This is the first year I have even noticed the fleas. So I went to get some Sevin Dust today because I read here that it could be used safely and is more effective than DE. After reading the bag at the store I am scared to use it on my birds or in my coop. Is it really safe? What about my chihuahua and my cat? Is there another option for me? I can't handle fleas like this. I was standing in my driveway this morning for about five minutes. I looked down and I lost count of the fleas on my legs after 15!!!! Needless to say my legs are red and itchy and I am afraid my son and tiny little dog can get very ill from this. If they invade my house and I am going to go postal. Will poultry dust from the feed store kill the fleas? Anyone got some strange old folks remedy for getting them gone? Any and all suggestions are welcome.
