    Use frontline plus (or off brand equivalent). One drop on neck, under each wing, and on vent

    Sure ...if you want to taint your eggs and meat foreever.
    Frontline is banned on food poultry per FARAD.

    Here's an article that may give you better choices/options for controlling/treating/eradicating the sticktight fleas.
    From the limited information I have read, here on BYC and google searches, they are a bit tricky to get rid of. Dedication and follow-up in treating seems to be the key to success.
