    How long should I wait to follow up the Python dust with Eprinex? Just not confident the Python dust will do the job with the lice.

    I'd wait 1 week and see if you're still seeing signs of itching and infestation. I usually use the Python on the stalls and Ivermectin pour-on on the goat. My girls have such think coats in winter that I have a really hard time getting the dust down to skin level!

    Check your bedding for damp conditions. Critters love it. If you need to strip your pens and get them dry.

    I have the pens down to dirt w/small patches of dry shavings and a separate container for kids. Unfortunately, I can't get the pens completely dry due to goats urinating (I lock them up at night).

    Thanks. I sprinkle with barn lime. Should I still dust the Python?

    Yes. I usually put the lime first, then the dust, then the bedding. Once the air clears you can let the goats back in. DO either hold your breath or wear a mask when you're dusting...
