    has anyone used the smoke bomb to get rid of red mite problem in their chicken coop, its the same one you use in your greenhouse to get rid of bugs, apparently you light the smoke bomb close the door and let the smoke get into all the crevices and after 2 hours open up the door and clean out the bedding and put in new and then its safe for the chickens to return.
    has anyone tried this method.

    well it looks like it works, i put this on other forums and i have had people write back and said it works great, one said they were dropping like rain drops out of his crevices in his coop, one said that there is one specially coming out soon for coops. warning: it takes a while to de fumigate the house make sure you get lots of ventilation into the house before you allow the chickens back in.[​IMG] at last something that works with ease.
