DetailsUse 2 shots per 1 lt of water for a 6% solution for spraying onto housing and equipment as a routine cleaning and disinfection and for elimination of red mite infestations. External Parasite Control The RED MITE is a very prolific external parasite of birds which can survive for long periods without feeding. Heavy mite infestations in chickens leads to high levels of stress and can result in anaemia, reduced egg production and , eventually if not treated, death. Additionally mites can often transmit diseases. In common with lice and other parasitic insects, red mite have a waxy hard outer covering ( exoskeleton) which once damaged dries out and they die. Therefore one of the best ways to control mites is by using a strong degreasant compound. SMITE is a specially selected, super-strength degreasant, disinfectant cleaner, with excellent wetting properties, which has proven highly effective at eliminating Red Mite in poultry housing. It is pleasant to use, for both the operator and the birds, is economical and contains NO pesticides.
