I use Fronline as of right now but was told by an older gentleman, who I hold in high regard for anything comments farm related, told em a solution of 1/2 water and 1/2 Original Listerine would work just as well on Mites as anything else I could find. Has anyone heard of this working?
I also know some guys use Adams Spray, What else does everyone use?

I don't know about killing mites but it would have enough alcohol in it that it would probably get those roos a crowin' and hens a cacklin' if put on their vent. lol

Del: probably so, but I wanna try cause this old man knows his stuff and his son was a cocker before they outlawed them in LA and he used it and it worked great. I was just wondering if anyone else had used it.

If I may add to a non website discussion. Frontline spray is at least 90% isopropyl alcohol. You can make frontline spray cheap. 2 tubes of the 89-132# generic friponil they sell at walmart(not the plus version) to 8.5oz of 90% or higher isopropyl alcohol(good quality rubbing alcohol) is the same mix as you pay $50+ for. You can mix a bottle up for less than $20.

I think "us" old english people will take any kind of advise as long as it's good.......even from a duck and goose breeder. lol I was not aware that frontline had that much alchol in it. I'll sure try this mixture. Thanks for the response Dustin

Now that is good information Dustin! I'm definitely going to try that too. What department in Walmart can the Friponil be found?

Just dipped everybody yesterday in malithione and water. They seem to have enjoyed the soaking as it was a relief from the heat we are seeing here. It sure is warm for end of April even for Louisiana.

You will need a sprinkler system for the birds to keep them going. Mosquitos are getting bad. Had to get what I had hatched out vaccinated for fowl pox. I usually try and wait untill I am done hatching and catch them all at once but not this year.

It's in the pet department. It is sold under the pet armor name. Get the regular stuff not pet armor plus.
