Chickens? Red Mites?! Use Androlis L for up to 30 birds



Chickens? Red Mites?! Use Androlis L for up to 30 birds

Red mites on hens. A safe, easy & effective control. Androlis L for up to 30 hens

Red mite, probably the most insidious hen pest I have come across. It hides away in cracks and crevices, beneath perches etc then comes out at night to suck the poor hens' blood!
Symptoms include lethargy, anaemia (often seen as a pale comb), decreased egg laying and, not suprisingly, a determination NOT to be put to bed at night! Hens may even die.
If you want a safe, effective control , try Androlis. This predatory mite seeks out and kills the red mites, eating all of its life stages. Unlike many chemical controls, Androlis attacks all stages, is enrironmentally safe, leaves no nasty residues and poses no problems with resistance.


Red mite is most likely to cause problems in warmer weather ie March to October, with May to October being the 'peak' time for attack in most years.


**For more information about this product , please see my blog dated 16th March 2015**


Each Androlis L pack contains 20,000 predatory mites, sufficient for up to 30 birds.


Can be used direct into the hen house, applied near the nesting and roosting sites OR for better results pour the Androlis in to special 'Prevorus Tubes ' (see separate entry) as these allow the gradual release of the predatory mites. These tubes can be hung on perches etc.


Best used when the pests first appear.


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


Androlis M (treat 1-10 birds) also available.
£45.00
