    Ok, we're going to de-louse the goats, does and kids alike. Do I dust their entire body? Never having done this, I want to do it right. Thanks! Jan in CO
     
  2. Hi Jan,

    Ive dusted a few times and ive dusted the head, neck along the back and the tail. I kinda worked it into the hair with my fingers and it seemed to work pretty good.

    So the lice won't just move further under the body, like in the "arm" pits, etc? That's the only reason I was unsure of how much of the body to cover with the powder. Thanks! Jan in Co
