Tammara from Arakdelphia, Arkansas writes,

Will demon hurt chickens that eat the dead bugs or effect the egg safety?

Sprayed outside 3 days ago. Kept hens up until today, but they immediately went for the dead bugs when they were let out. Will they be ok? Is it safe to eat the eggs or is there a "detox" period where we should discard the eggs?


The amount of insecticide on the surfaces is so minute that its only toxic to something the size of an insect. Even if the chickens were to eat many of the dead bugs, they would not be ingesting enough poison to harm them or the eggs.
