Smite 1 litre Red mite control

5 Litre Smite Red Mite Treatment

CONTROLLING RED MITE INFESTATION Getting the upper hand with a severe Red Mite infestation requires persistence and attention to detail, and it may involve using more than one approach. Any control programme needs to pay attention to the following:

1. Operator hygiene and suitable protective clothing to prevent the spread of mite between sites.

2. Sealing up of as many joints and crevices as possible, to reduce the number of areas which harbour mite

3. Efficient disposal of mite-infested litter and debris, to prevent re-infestation

4. Study the Red Mite life cycle – repeat treatment needs to be undertaken within seven days to maximise the effect and ‘catch’ the largest possible number of mite.

5. Constant vigilance and prompt treatment of any hotspots.

6. Use of a poultry tonic or vitamin supplement to help the birds recover and increase their resistance to re-infection.


If using dosing pump supplied, use 2 x 30ml shots per litre of water (6% solution), or dilute 1 part SMITE with 15-25 parts water (6.66% - 4% solution). Apply as suggested to the housing and equipment, using knapsack or hand sprayer. Use suitable protective clothing.

1: Before depopulation of the unit, initially spray liberally with 6% solution of SMITE to equipment and nesting areas. This reduces the number of mite initially and gives a more comfortable environment for the workforce. SMITE is not licensed to be sprayed on the birds, but it is safe to spray the housing with the birds in situ and any overspray will not cause a problem.

2: Remove all equipment from the unit, including any plastic slats, as these can harbour mite in the joints.

3: The housing unit and equipment should then be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to a clinical standard, using a 6% solution of SMITE. Take care to remove all litter and manure from every area, thus removing as many mites as possible. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices, perches and joints.

4: When the new crop of birds has been introduced and the unit temperature has stabilised, spray with a 6% solution of SMITE, as any remaining mites will now suddenly become very active, especially if the unit has been empty for some time

5: Spray the whole housing unit again with a 6% solution 7 days later. In ideal conditions, Red Mite have a reproduction cycle of 7 days and this will treat any eggs which have hatched since the initial spraying. In severe infestations, the treatment should be repeated every 7-10 days until the infestation is under control.

6: For continued control, routine spraying with a 3% solution of SMITE (1 x 30ml pump dose per litre of water) should be done every 4-6 weeks, without fail, even if mites are not visible.

  Great product  This product is very good at breaking down organic matter and keeping your flock healthy. I have used it for several years now and find it dilutes easily without mess due to the pump on the lid. It is very cost efective.   Alisatir - Wirral

  Good, effective product  Arrived promptly, which was good as I'd run out and in beed of it. Have been using for a while now. Excellent for keeping the red mite at bay but needs to be used regularly otherwise they creep back.    -

  Excellent  Very happy with this product. It's very efective and fast to kill those little red blighters! Good value product that I used at a little over 50%+ of the doe recommended on the back of the container to be sure. Chickens are far happier now and back to 'full production'!    -

    Really pleased with purchase, quick delivery and product works really well.    -

  Smite concentrate  I use this weekly as a disinfectant. I dilute the smite into a hand sprayer to clean out the coop. Would highly recommend it.   Tammy - Bath

    Very pleased with this product, seems to be working better than anything else I,ve used. Quick delivery, value for money.    -

  Brilliant product!  As a fairly new back garden hen keeper I did not spot the early signs and ended up with bad red mite infestation. Tried loads of products this is the only 1 that worked. Best of all is odourless and easy to use. No sign of mites for 6 months now with regular use.   Becky - Bath, Somerset
