Treatment against poultry red mite is best carried out at the early stages of infestation and thoroughly. Not only the housing system should be considered, but also walls, ceilings, the equipment that is taken into the hen house. Pay special attention to areas where dust, debris and manure can accumulate. Red mites like to settle on or around manure. When manure is removed from the hen house, it could be useful to treat the surroundings of the manure storage and the outside of the hen house to try and prevent mites that were removed with the manure from re-entering the hen house.
