    I've read several posts where it says to use Sevin, but I haven't seen anything on how much to use.

    You just sprinkle it all over them and work it down to the skin, being careful of their eyes.
    There's no particular amount on these things.
    I use diatomaceous earth and it works well too.

    Yup thats it, I was told to use only the 5% sevin dust for my animals. We even use it on the horses to help with ticks. You can find it in the garden center almost anywhere.

    What strenght do you others use or do you use the 5% as well.

    Our local walmart only stocked the sevin 5, so that's what we got. It worked like a charm! What is the diamo (I forgot the spelling) earth? Is that also in the lawn and garden section at walmart and in a powder form?

    I have been trying to get ahold of some diatomaceous earth for a long time. It has been out of stock :(

    One warning about Sevin dust. IF you raise bees or have neighbors that do, please don't use it. Sevin dust and its generic counterpart Carbaryl dust are highly deadly to them. Permethrin Dust works just as well and is much, much safer.
