Chickens?Red mites? Androlis M treat 1-10 birds



Chickens?Red mites? Androlis M treat 1-10 birds

Red mites on hens control that is safe, easy and very effective : Androlis

Red mite, probably the most insidious pest of hens I've come across.It hides away in cracks and crevices, beneath perches etc and comes out at night to suck the poor unfortunate hens' blood.
Symptoms include lethargy, decreased egg laying, anaemia (may be seen as a pale comb) and, not suprisingly, a determination NOT to be put to bed at night! Hens may even die.
If you want a safe, very effective control try Androlis, a predatory mite which seeks out and kills all stages of the red mite. Unlike many chemical controls, Androlis is completely environmentally safe, leaves no nasty residues and the red mite cannot develop resistance to these little predators.

The red mite is likely to be most troublesome in warmer weather , so March to October, particularly May to October.
**For more details see my Blog section, blog dated 16th March 2015.**

Each Androlis M pack contains approx 3,000 predatory mites and is suitable for use on 1-10 birds.

Can be used direct in to hen house near the nesting area, but best  to pour the Androlis into special  'Prevorus Tubes' (see separate entry)  as these allow  gradual release of the predatory mites and can be hung on perches etc.

Best used when the problem first appears (more pleasant for hens too!)

Repeat applications should be made every 4-8 weeks depending on the infestation.

Androlis L : (treats up to 30 birds) also available
