The Red Mite, or Chicken Mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) is a nasty parasite of birds; and particularly of poultry and chickens. The mite feeds on the blood of the birds, which causes stress and anaemia. These symptoms can become so severe that they lead to the death of the bird. Infected birds will also be liable to increased pecking, and in some cases, cannibalism. Chickens can also suffer from a decreased egg yield. Chemical treatments are difficult and largely ineffective as they mostly only target the adult mites.
The Androlis predatory mites will feed on the Red Mite and Northern Fowl Mite. They kill all stages of the parasites from egg to adult. Androlis is easy to use and 100% safe for the birds, the environment and humans.
Androlis predators feed on the Red Mites once the mites have fed and fallen off the birds. The Androlis does not go onto the birds themselves.
Androlis should be applied to the floor of chicken coops, next to roosting areas or directly into nests. The Androlis will then seek out the harmful mites and consume them. Androlis can be applied preventively or curatively.
