The Q&A Archives: tick controll and chickens

Question: I've got chickens & am being overrun by ticks...nothing on any of the insecticides I've looked at has info on how long to keep my birds off the treated areas. How long do I need to keep them penned after treating?

Answer: I'm afraid that's a question only someone with experience with poultry can answer. I'd suggest contacting your local cooperative extension office for advice. Colorado State University Cooperative Extension - Golden Plains Area - Yuma County,
310 Ash Street, Suite B, Wray, CO 80758 Phone 970-332-4151 970-332-4165 (fax) /
I'm sure an extension agent can answer your question.
