Re: Secrets: re any new treatments for biting lice? thread

If you do a little googling you will find that Moxidectin is a popular drug for poultry in Australia.  There it is considered safe and effective for chickens.  Unfortunately it is also off label there as well and withdrawl periods for chicken-meat and eggs is not known.  However, sheep butchered for meat have a 7 day waiting period after use.  Most comments I have found recommend 5 days to 2 weeks.

We are lucky to have many different wormers/pesticides available for our livestock.  You can pick and choose which one best meets your needs and requirements!

Re: Secrets: re any new treatments for biting lice? thread

Speaking of many excellent products available, I recently saw that Debantic 50 wettable powder is back on the market ( recently saw it at Peavey Mart).  It is labelled for use on both premises and directly on poultry for control of lice and mites and in the premise for fowl tick.  Also good for darkling beetle larvae, those nasty little things, and flies.
This is definitely a product that should be used with caution and won't be right for everyone but might be an option if other things aren't doing the job or someone is dealing with a bad infestation.  I have requested some information on a withdrawal period in layers as there doesn't appear to be one on the label.
