Red Mite Powder and Red Mite Concentrate are effective repellent combinations to be applied to poultry as a proactive ‘0n bird’ deterrent to infestation or to rectify an existing problem.
The product comes in two application methods:
A powder - to dust on for a long lasting effect.
A liquid concentrate - for knapsack application at 1:50 dilution.

Suitable for use in Organic Farming Systems: Red Mite Powder contains only pure and natural ingredients. Red Mite Powder was developed for use in intensive farming systems, but is also suitable for use in organic farming systems, as it 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).

Directions for use - Powder application: Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
The powder can be dusted onto the birds or added to the dust bath.
Red mite is a nocturnal creature so it’s best to spray the birds before lights out.
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.
Lightly dust Red Mite Powder over the birds. Dependant upon infestation, the powder can be applied again after 5/6 weeks.

Staying power: Red Mite Powder contains minute slow release granules that remain effective for up to six weeks - depending upon infestation and conditions.

Barrier Scaly Leg Spray

£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.

Suitable for use in Organic Farming Systems: Suitable for use in Organic and Intensive Farming Systems. 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.

Directions for use: SHAKE WELL. Spray the legs generously from the hocks down. Scaly leg mite can also attack the comb and wattles. For small birds - Apply 1-2 trigger pulls of product per leg. 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.

Will Scaly leg taint eggs: Scaly Leg Spray will not taint eggs.
