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.
Anti-Red is added to the drinking water of your birds. It's ingredients have been proven to weaken the impact of parasitic mites on the birds.
Anti-Red should be used in combination with Androlis predatory mites for optimal control of the Red Mites and maximum protection for your Poultry and Birds. With the Anti-Red weakening the parasites every time your birds drink, and the Androlis predators consuming the mites as they fall off the birds, you should see a rapid reduction in infestation levels.
Add 3ml of Anti-Red per 1 litre of drinking water daily for 7 days.
Proceed to apply the Anti-Red 1 day per week thereafter.
