    my girls have what I assume are Lice.. tiny little peachy colored kinda bugs. anyway... I dusted em w/ 7 dust (I put it on everybody! chickens, dogs, etc...) will that work? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Dana-I am not sure if spray and dust work the same, but when I sprayed for lice, the vet told me to do the barn/sleeping area as well. Good news-my spray worked, so hopefully the dust will knock those lice right off them!
