The red mite ; Dermanyssus gallinae is a nasty parasite of birds and especially of Poultry and chickens. The mite feeds on the blood of the bird and causes stress and anaemia. This can be so severe that it can lead to the death of birds. Infected birds will be liable to increased pecking and cannibalism. Chickens can also have decreased egg yield. Chemical treatments are difficult and largely ineffective, as most only target the adult mites.
Androlis is the name of the product for controlling red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds. It contains predatory mites that feed on red mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult. Androlis is easy to use and is 100% safe to the birds, the environment and humans.
