No. The two drugs were tested in actual chickens.
Ivermectin didn't work.
Fluralaner did.
In actual chickens, to whom it was given, and the bedbugs that bit them died.

In other news, as horrible as they are bedbugs don't carry any known diseases

The is a spray called bedlam that works well getting rid of them

I used Invermectin to kill scaly leg mites in my chickens. Didn't eat the eggs for a while though. This was before Invermectin was cool.
