The red mite or Chicken 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.
The solution is ANDROLIS predatory mites, which will feed on red mite and northern fowl mite on all birds. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult. ANDROLIS is easy to use and is 100% safe for the birds, the environment and humans.
ANDROLIS predators feed on the red mites once they have fed and fallen off the birds, they do not go onto the birds. ANDROLIS is applied to the floor of chicken coops, next to roosting areas or into nests. The predatory mites will then search out the harmful mites and consume them. ANDROLIS can be applied preventively or curatively. There are three main unit sizes;
Androlis M - treats up to 10 birds
Androlis L - Treats up to 30 birds
Androlis XL - treats up to 100 birds
Repeat treatments should be made every 4-8 weeks depending on the infestation. Androlis predators will not be active under 12.c, so activity will decrease with falling temperatures.
