    Is wazine affective at killing mites? For some reason I am having a mite problem this year.I have dusted them several times with powder seven dust and sprayed with liquid seven.its quite frustrating.

    Mix up Borax and Peroxide, and put it on their feet, it will kill mites.

    My understanding is that the only parasite that Wazine will be effective on is roundworms. Ivermectin, though, will help with both internal and external parasites. I know that ivermectin is effective for treating lice, and I think it is also useful for treating mites.

    We have sprayed and dusted everywhere.seems to be a problem mostly on the cochins.I have one extremely fluffy one and she seems the most affected one.its time for me to worm soon so I thought it might help.I can't tell if its mites or lice.but my birds are off the ground and I haven't brought any new birds unless they were hatched here in two years.
