Hi there, I have two questions. I have just dunked my chickens in a dilute of malaban 10ml to 1ltr of water, according to an expert at my local chicken shop (which is now closed for the weekend). Thereafter, I saw that the solution expired 6 months ago. Does anyone have a sense of whether it still might've been effective? I have small concerns (small as it seems unlikely) that the chemicals might become more potent or change with time to become more harmful somehow... Secondly, the water I dunked them in and the others bucket of water that started fresh and then became slightly contaminated throughout, what is the best way to dispose of this?
Thanks in advance.

How many ml per litre do I use for back yard use to rid of fleas
I use about half a cap full with about 2 cups of water per dog. Then I just swab them with a household sponge and pour the rest over but I try not to get it in their eyes as it stings them. I have put some in a spray bottle but I find drenching them the best.

Hey I brought malaban for sarcoptic mange and it doesn't say to was it off or not just wondering if it would my my dogs skin at all?
The above reviewer believes it gave her dog cancer. I suppose desperate times call for desperate measures. I used to use this a while back but it's like pouring turps on the dog. It's going to work but may have a high health cost. Directions probably state to pour it over and leave it but remember that you are dealing with a poisonous chemical

Can i wash my dog with this product> She is nursing puppies at the moment? Fleas dont seem to be the problem but her fur is thinning in some areas. Will this product hurt her puppies?
Hi there. I just purchased some Malaban wash to treat for fleas in my yard and garage. I have placed garden lime all around the yard and garage floor as well. My question is will these 2 products react with each other and cause dramas ?? I tried calling the poison info line but they had not heard of line being used as a flea treatment. An old farmer told me years ago it would work. It has to a certain extent. But not on the concrete. Any info would be appreciated. I don’t want to inhale anything or cause harm to my dogs or my rental house. Thanks for your time
My chooks and ducks are covered in fleas. Am i able to spray them with diluted malawash, being careful not to get in their eyes of course?
hi shona This product controls 'red mites&lice in aviaries&lofts. do not use on your birds.you will have to treat them with a suitable insecticide. garry.
my 22 chooks have stick tight fleas, a stock feed store in Northam WA recommended Malaban Wash to treat the problem...what a joke and complete waste of time. YES garry you are very correct in your reply to shona ' this product controls red mites and lice' NO STICK TIGHT FLEES! Hours of wasted time catching 22 chooks swabbing their eye lids, cones and wattles 3 times in 3 weeks.
Is this product safe?
Here are the safety directions on the bottle. It's made me reluctant to use this product.
Malaban Wash: SAFETY DIRECTIONS: This product is poisonous if absorbed by skin contact or inhaled or swallowed. Avoid
contact with eyes and skin. Avoid breathing vapour or spray mist. When preparing and using the product wear
elbow length PVC gloves. When using in enclosed areas wear a face shield. If product on skin, immediately wash
area with soap and water. If product in eyes, wash it out immediately with water. After use and before eating,
drinking or smoking, wash hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water.
Do not use under puppies or kittens under 3 months of age.
I've tried the natural mix of water, borax and hydrogen peroxide and also apple cider vinegar. Both of these concoctions have helped my dogs, their skin has cleared up but it's taking a while. You'll have to weigh up the pros and cons, as it does seem to be a successful immediate treatment.
Not sure about long term poisoning effects...if it's poisonous by absorption through the skin of humans, wouldn't that apply to dogs? Just a thought.
