Hi everyone, Can anyone tell me how to get rid of fowl tick? I haven't seen any on the chooks but I have found where they roost up during the day and check every morning and squash what is there and they are always full of blood. I have Frontlined all of the chooks twice and that seems to have got rid of the scaly leg problem I had but doesn't seem to have effected the ticks. I have heard a small amount of cow drench squirted on the back of their necks works for fleas, worms scaly leg etc. and I'm sure I have read about it here somewhere but can't find it now. What I would like to know is does it work for ticks? Does moxidectin work for ticks? It certainly sounds like the easiest to use. Have also cleaned the pens right out and sprayed all woodwork with sump oil. I'm not too keen to use diamotacious earth as I have recently read a warning on this as being as bad as aspestos for your lungs. Claire
The name of the product you are looking for is called Eprinex or Ivomec and it is good for all intestinal worms, ticks, stick fleas, lice, and mites. We bought ours at Landmark. $168.00 for Litre. Although it is not cheap it has a shelf life of about 3 years or so. The dosage I believe is about 1ml per chook on the back of the neck and you need to do this about every 3 months. This also stops the breeding cycle which is about 45 days. We were told not to say that we were using it for chooks though as they would not sell it to us for that purpose. As for the spraying we have used Coopex which is available at most hardware stores. You need to spray cracks and crevices where they can hide. This also kills spiders and other crawlies.
if you are trying to treat something that is not living on the chook you also need to treat the environment as well. products such as swift will be good for treating the environment such as under the perches etc.
