MITES AND LICE ARE A BIG PROBLEM !
Red mites feed on the bird between one and two hours each night.
They tend to live in cracks and crevices in the hen houses as this where they deposit the eggs.
When the nest conditions are correct the mite larvae hatch 2-3 days after being laid.
The time it takes for a mite to go from egg to adult is 7 days.
This short cycle can cause Red Mite infestations to grow very rapidly.
Even without a food source Red Mite can survive for as long as 8 months making them a very hardy pest.
Constant vigilance is needed during warm weather but you should continue to check your birds and coop throughout the winter as well.
This great product is such a easy way to keep your hen house free of mites and lice with ease!
An initial tell tale sign of infestation may be the reluctance of the hens to go into the house at night.
The best time to check for Red Mites is early morning, when they can be seen easily by the naked eye.
After feeding on the blood of the birds overnight the mites get their distinctive red colouring.
Another tell tale sign is a build up of a grey dust in the coop, this is the detritus from the mite.
Look particularly under perches and in perch sockets for live mites.
The mites can also be found hiding in the dust on the floor and roof and in the timber joints,
