Poultry Shield Red Mite Treatment

Poultry Shield Red Mite Treatment

Click here to buy Poultry Shield & start killing mites!


Instructions for use by small holders.

Use the cleaning product to eliminate red mite for your coupe.

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 coupe 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.


Instructions for use in Free Range units.

Stage 1 Before de-population of the unit, spray liberally with a powerful cleaning product. Ensure enough product is used to soak into all joints of the equipment and nesting boxes. (This also gives a comfortable environment when removing equipment manually). Do not switch the lights off after the birds have been removed. If the lights are switched off the mites come out to feed on the birds. Finding birds are not present, the mites move away from their usual nesting areas on the equipment and typically move up into the roof space making them more difficult to eliminate.

Stage 2 Remove all equipment from the unit and all plastic slats, as interlocking joints can harbour eggs and immature mites.

Stage 3 The unit and equipment must be washed to a clinical standard using a powerful cleaner removing all litter and manure from every area.

Stage 4 Once the new crop of birds are in and the unit temperature is as required, spray again with a powerful cleaning product as the remaining mites will become very active especially if the unit has been empty for a long period of time.

Stage 5 Routine spot spraying with a powerful cleaning product must be done every 4-6 weeks without fail, even if mites are not visible. (Do not spray the birds). Spot spray on all joins in the nest boxes and under the lip of feed tracks.

Instruction for use in cage system.

Stage 1 Before de-population of the unit, spray liberally with a powerful cleaning product. Ensure enough product is used to soak into all joints of the equipment paying particular attention to the brackets on the feed track and sides of the egg belt. (This also ensures a comfortable environment when removing the birds). Do not switch the lights off after the birds have been removed. If the lights are switched off the mites come out to feed on the birds. Finding birds are not present, the mites move away from their usual nesting areas on the equipment and typically move up into the roof space making them more difficult to eliminate.

Stage 2 The unit and equipment must be washed to a clinical standard using a powerful cleaning product to removing all organic matter from the cages.

Stage 3 Once the new crop of birds are in and the unit temperature is as required, spray the cages again with powerful cleaning product as the remaining mites will become very active especially if the unit has been empty for a long period of time.

Stage 4 Routine spot spraying with a powerful cleaning product must be done every 4-6 weeks without fail, even if mites are not visible. (Do not spray the birds) Spot spray on all joins in the cages concentrating on any area where the cleaning fluid runs green. A powerful cleaning product will change to a green colour when it makes contact with red mite the green is caused by the wax shell of the mites dissolving
