We wish to treat backyard chickens for scaly leg mites and other possible mites.
Per the Permethrin SFR product label: "When treating poultry houses for bedbugs or chicken mites, apply as a spray 4 fl oz to 10 gallons of water. For severe infestation, it is permissible to use 4 fl oz to 4 gallons.
When treating poultry directly: Use 1-4 fl oz in 3 3/4 gallons water, which should treat roughly 375 birds. Use 1 gallon of coarse spray per 100 birds."
