5 litre Poultry Shield Concentrate

5 litre Poultry Shield Concentrate


Price: £18.10 (Including VAT at 15%)

Quantity:

5 litre Poultry Shield Concentrate Use the cleaning product to eliminate red mite from your coup.

Spray everywhere inside the coupe ensuring plenty of product penetrates all the joins. If possible loosen some of the joints in the structure to guarantee all areas are covered. Felt roofs on a coup are a problem - the mites typically hide between the felt and the wood. We recommend felt roofs are replaced with onduline corrugated roofing which can be removed and reattached easily.

Do not be tempted to use a household cleaning product as many contain caustic chemicals which can be absorbed by eggs.

Poultry Shield is widely recognised as the most powerful non-caustic cleaning product on the market.

Have I got red mite?: An increase in feed consumption accompanied by a decrease in production/growth is signs that a poultry house should be examined for mites. They are often found by looking under loose clods of litter, under slats, in nests or in any cracks and crevices in the house structure. They are evident as tiny red to blackish dots often in clusters.

Severe Irritation: Birds will suffer severe irritation resulting in depressed production. There is usually an increase in vent pecking, cannibalism and general distress to the birds.

Outside treatment : In warmer conditions, Red Mite can survive outdoors - even in grass and will wait until treated areas are no longer a danger. Entrances must be regularly treated.

What is Red Mite?: These tiny free-living bloodsuckers are a common problem for the poultry industry with many producers seeing their effect on the health and productivity of their stock. Chickens are the main hosts, with mite troubling flocks of broiler breeders, free range and barn egg layers. They may also occur in ducks, geese, turkeys, pigeons and other avian species. Red Mite can survive away from birds for up to 38 weeks. It is important to continue application after they appear to have gone. It is also advisable to treat housing - entrances, slats, roof structures, cracks and crevices with an effective AND suitable pesticide.

Life cycle : Red Mite are able to live away from birds for up to 38 weeks and so it is essential that application continues to prevent re-infestation.

Know your enemy: Red mite are nocturnal ectoparasites, feeding on the birds as they roost at night and disappearing into the cracks and crevices of the building structure during the day.
The adult female measures 0.7 mm x 0.4 mm and is red in colour after feeding or otherwise grey/black in appearance. They thrive in the warm food-rich environment of a poultry house where their life cycle can be as short as 7 days. The larvae hatch and mature into egg laying adults in as little as 3-4 days, which can result in dramatic population growth. They persist in empty poultry houses due to their ability to roll themselves into a tight ball putting their tough sclerotized, chemical resistant shell outwards. In this kind of hibernation state they have been known to survive up to 34 weeks, even without feeding. They may arrive on the farm in equipment such as egg trays, contaminated feed, through intakes of infested birds, or through wild bird transmission.

Infestation Problems: A red mite infestation can mean one or more of the following problems:
Mild to severe irritation of the birds resulting in depressed production.
An increase in floor eggs - since birds will avoid heavily infested nest boxes.
An increase in vent pecking, cannibalism and general distress to the birds.
Clinical anaemia, leading to dull, pale combined birds and possibly death.
Pale yolk colour.
Eggs stained red with crushed mites or mite faeces resulting in downgrading of eggs.
Dermatitis or skin irritation of farm staff collecting eggs and caring for birds.

Eggs: Red Mite infestation may cause eggs to be stained red with crushed mites or mite faeces, a decrease in egg production or pale coloured yoke.

Hygiene: The risk of the red mite infestation can be reduced by a complete and effective farm hygiene programme, with regular health checks on bird intakes, careful examination to ensure any new equipment brought onto the farm is properly disinfected and effective measures against wild bird contamination. At depletion all equipment should be removed from the house and completely mucked out. Terminal disinfect using our MAFF approved Barrier V1 disinfectant . This is suitable for organic farming systems and can be used on all equipment, slats and fabric of the building.

Best time to apply: The best time to treat the birds is in the evening, because Red Mite are nocturnal and so feed on the birds as they roost at night. Apply in accordance with the directions for use, directly onto the birds.

Directions for use - Red Mite Concentrate: Red mite is a nocturnal creature so it’s best to spray the birds at night.
Dim the lights as low as practically possible to avoid any undue agitation amongst the birds.
Don't forget that red mite can live away from the bird for up to 36 weeks.
Liquid Concentrate: Shake well. To use as a general preventative, dilute the product 1 part concentrate to 50 parts water (500ml bottle will make 25L of ready to use product) To correct an existing problem, bring the dilution down to 1 part concentrate to 20 parts water (500ml bottle will make 12.5L of ready to use product). Normally the product is applied via a knapsack sprayer and applied directly over the poultry. Shake before spraying directly and evenly over the birds. For severe infestation repeat within 7 days.

£9.12

Scaly Leg Spray is a wonderful deterrent against scaly leg mite for Birds and Poultry including Chickens, Turkeys, Game and Cage Birds.

Deterrent Against Scaly Leg Mite : We recommend you use Scaly Leg Spray as a deterrent as well as to treat an existing problem. Scaly Leg Mite affects birds of all ages, although older birds and feathered leg breeds tend to be more susceptible. Affected birds should be isolated and all housing cleared and thoroughly cleaned.

Prevention : Scaly Prevention is always the best option. Check for the tell tail signs of crusty, white deposits on enlarged, rough and lumpy legs where the scales have become raised. Living entirely on the bird Scaly Leg Mite cause pain and intense irritation for the bird as they burrow under the scales and into the skin of the legs and sometimes the comb and wattles. In severe cases of infestation the birds find it difficult to walk, may lose a toe and become severely deformed.

Identification: Caused by Cnemidocoptes mutans and evident as tiny white spherical creatures with a diameter of less than 0.5mm Scaly Leg Mite is difficult to spot in the early stages. For this reason we recommend you use Scaly Leg Spray as a deterrent as well as to treat an existing problem.

This product falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended) and is therefore suitable to use in organic systems.

For average sized birds - Apply 5 trigger pulls of product per leg. For large birds - Apply 10 trigger pulls of product per leg.

For General Maintenance: When buying in birds always check them very carefully and treat them as a matter of course before introducing them to clean birds. Spray the legs, comb and wattles every few weeks (avoid eyes).

Where infestation exists: Scaly Leg Spray is a wonderful product to repel the mite, whilst soothing and calming irritation. Affected birds should be isolated and all housing cleared and thoroughly cleaned. Spray the legs, comb and wattles directly and evenly (avoid eyes) and repeat every 5–6 days to break the egg cycle.
