Red Mite Treatment

Small parasites that can live in your chicken coop, red mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) feed off the blood of your birds during the night. Red mites can become an issue in any coop, but wooden cops are the most prone to infestations. Mites may invade your coop at any time but especially during the summer months. Hot conditions provide the red mite with the perfect environment in which to breed. Your red mite treatments will help to keep your chickens healthy and have been chosen from the highly regarded Agrivite, Barrier Animal Healthcare, Biolink, Harkers, Johnson’s Veterinary, Nettex and Smite collections. You will discover disinfectants to rid your coop of mites and powders to protect your coop and chickens from infestation.

What are the symptoms of red mite?

It is vital to remain alert for the presence of red mite. A fall in egg production, pale combs and general weakness are all symptoms of the parasites. The presence of red mites in the coop or on the birds should be addressed as soon as possible. Check your coop regularly, paying particular attention to the perches together with any crack and crevices.

How does red mite infestation impact chickens?

Small numbers of mites will be merely an irritation to your birds as they cause itchiness. However, a serious infestation can seriously impact your birds’ health. The mites are capable of sucking sufficient blood to cause anaemia which will result in pale combs, weakness and reduced egg production. If too much blood is lost by the chickens, the situation may prove fatal.

How to treat for red mite

Red mites are extremely persistent and so it can take time to eradicate them. You should begin by cleaning out your coop and disposing of any bedding. Strip the coop down and replace the roof felting. Apply mite disinfectant such as Smite Professional Mite and Louse Treatment. Hose down the coop, taking care to reach every nook and cranny. Check for mites and hose again. Repeat this process until you can no longer see the parasites. Leave the coop to dry and then replace the bedding. Sprinkle the coop and your birds with red mite powder and rub this into perches. Reapply mite powder per the instructions and continue the treatment throughout the summer months.
