    Anything with pyrethrum in it should do the trick.

    I use Sevin-Dust on all of my Chickens and White Peking ducks (available in any Walmart!)
    Make sure you dont buy the granuals...they think its feed! [​IMG]

    I pour some in a plastic grocery bag, and place the duck or chicken inside with their head sticking out...holding gently around their necks...and...(((SHAKE)))!!!
    My hubby calls it "Shake & Bake"...without the Bake of course. [​IMG]
    I also sprinkle it around their coop and in their boxes for good measure!
    Good luck!
