I asked earlier if Talstar P was safe to use on outdoor cushions. The response was it is not to be used on...
furniture and what I'm treating for. I am treating for bird mites. I take care of feral cats and they are constantly being infested with bird mites. I am only able to catch one of the cats to treat with Revolution. The cats love to lounge om the cushions. I was hoping for a residual treatment that would be safe to apply to the cushions. If I use DE the cats won't go near the cushions and I want them to be able to as they enjoy sitting on them, in the sun.
Have you had a proper identification for these pests? It is likely that cats would not carry bird mites. We would recommend getting these identified for sure so that we can give you a proper treatment plan.
