Management of red mite is a major problem in poultry layer farms. If not managed properly, the red mite parasite may have severe consequences for production, poultry health, and bird welfare.
Red Mite Avian Liquid Treatment
Red Mite Avian is a liquid treatment that is dosed into the poultry water supply via a dosing pump, for example, Seko or Dosatron.
Red Mite Avian treatment is unlike any other product on the market, as it works on breaking the red mite breeding cycle.
Once the bird has consumed water, the mites go for their blood meal, the mites are unable to digest the liquid product and will begin to dry from the inside out. Results will be visible between 6 to 8 weeks after starting the treatment.

About Red Mite Poultry Infestation
Red Mite is a nocturnal, blood-feeding parasite, which attacks the birds at night to feed on their blood. After feeding the mites hide in cracks and crevices where they mate and lay eggs. The Red Mite has a short breeding cycle, and females can lay several hundred eggs. Unless controlled mite populations can increase rapidly within poultry housing.
