Marylee writes,

Does it kill cone nose beetles and safe around chickens who would eat the dead insects?

Our chickens free range and they would eat the dead insects. We are worried about them and the eggs they lay. My husband is deathly allergic to the cone nose beetle (AKA kissing bug) so we need a safe spray for chickens.


We would recommend using Talstar P for kissing bugs. It is labeled to be used in poultry houses at the rate of 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water. We would recommend keeping your chickens out of the area until it has dried.
