So is using kero not a good idea anymore? we used to soak them in it for 30 seconds and no more scaly mites

Kero is one of the "old-school" treatments which to be honest is pretty drastic, especially when less toxic products are now available.
However, it would probably still work. I would warn against using it if there were any sores or wounds exposed.
I would choose not to use kero but each to their own.

I was told to mix up half kerosene and half raw linseed oil then get a small brush and paint their legs once a week for 4 weeks then again once a month for 3 months?

that is a lot of work and a long time when there are much more effective and safer treatments around now
