Poultry Red Mite Control

Red poultry mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) are blood-feeding ecto-parasites that lives in cracks and crevices in your chicken houses and barns.

Red mites are called a 'temporary ecto-parasite' because they are normally only found on the bird when feeding at night and are a serious problem for poultry keepers. They cannot fly but they crawl along perches to get to your chickens and are a very serious problem for poultry keepers during the summer months when they are most active. A large infestation of red mites is serious as they may make chickens anaemic. If you don't act quickly, birds can die. Fortunately there are warning signs so people usually find out there is an infestation before it is too late.

At Farm Chem we stock a range of professional products for red mite control and more information can be found below.
