I use the eye drop method also.l I have sprayed them before to. I never had one get sick. The spray as far as I know does not absorb threw the skin like the drops that come in the squeeze tubes. It has some of the same active ingredients but works totally different. It is a surface treatment. I could be wrong, but I do not think so. My chickens are to broad to reach around to their vents to mess with it anyway..LOL

I used the spray about 2 months ago on 35 or 40 adult birds. I sprayed above their vent, under each wing, and the back of their hackle. Was it a bit excessive ? Possibly, but the chickens did fine, and the mites had a bad day!

Frontline is absorbed through the skin. Only one or two drops is all it takes to kill the mites.

The frontline drops like you buy in a 3 or 6 pack has a different carrier agent then the stuff that comes in a squirt bottle. Both active ingredients are fipronell. However you use it, if it works then it's right for you. To each his own to sort of speak.

Dustin my nephew gets this stuff for his dogs and I sprayed some miniature layers with it around the same time I sprayed frontline on my OEGs and it didn't kill them as quick but they have none present and still don't so as of right now its running neck and neck with frontline, has anyone else tried this?

depends on mites. I had a broken elbow and once it healed the mites were bad. I put a spray under the vent and under each wing. Noth that everything is okay and I get normal mite infestations I use half a spray under the vent. When I do up upkeep I use an eye dropper and just two or three drops under the vent
