    I got Sevin concentrate to spray the coop down with however I'm having trouble figuring out the ratio. All the instructions are for spraying plants. What ratio do you use for spraying the inside of your coops?

    Thanks

    It's the same, since you're killing bugs no matter what it's sprayed on

    Got that, I was wondering more if there was a ratio that might be too high for the birds safety. I used 3oz Sevin to 1 gallon water.

    I'd use the weakest one listed, and if if doesn't work, go a little stronger
