Have a look on eBay for individual sachets of Ficam W, they are usually around £9 plus p&p.
I spray all my coops inside and out with Creosote twice yearly and spray all the chickens with Frontline Spray, which I purchase online.
I am currently owned by three French Bulldogs, numerous Frizzle Orpington Bantams, along with Charlie & Vera the Muscovy ducks!

I cant get hold of creosote I have tried every where..... unless I spend 50 quid on a huge amount. I think that will break the straw on the husbands back....... :-$

If you live close to a farm, take a container and ask if they have some that you can buy, that's how I get mine, he charges me the same as Wickes do for Creocote :-)
