Red Mite Powder and Red Mite Concentrate are effective repellent combinations to be applied to poultry as a proactive '0n bird' deterrent to infestation or to rectify an existing problem.

The product comes in two application methods:

  • A powder - to dust on for a long lasting effect.
  • A liquid concentrate - for knapsack application at 1:50 dilution.

Suitable for use in Organic Farming Systems: Red Mite Powder contains only pure and natural ingredients. Red Mite Powder was developed for use in intensive rearing, breeding and egg laying units and is also suitable for use in organic farming systems, as it falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended).

Contents: Our formulation uses only 100% natural ingredients known for their excellent properties to thoroughly rid poultry and other birds of all types of mite and lice. Its active ingredient is a synergised tropical plant extract mixed with a blend of herbal and essential oils, all of which are proven very effective for this purpose. Sterilizable maize is used as the carrier and unlike other carriers, it will not metabolise via cuts, abrasions, scabs, grazes or dry flaky skin areas and form granulomas.

Never use chemical based products in conjunction with our natural products as this could render ours useless.

Fully HSE Approved - Licence No. 8710: Full HSE Approval - Licence No 8710: In accordance with the Biocidal Products Directive, regulations require any product which holds itself out as any form of repellent to secure an approval and licence number from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). This approval requires the active ingredient (Ai) to be listed on the label together with the amount of Ai being used. Barrier Animal Healthcare secured the necessary approval and the licence number 8710 for this product.
Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

Best time to apply : The best time to treat the birds is during the evening, because Red Mite are nocturnal and so feed on the birds as they roost at night. Apply in accordance with the directions for use, directly onto the birds.

Directions for use - Powder application: Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

  • Red mite is a nocturnal creature so it's best to dust the birds before lights out.
  • Dim the lights as low as practically possible to avoid any undue agitation amongst the birds.
  • The powder can be dusted onto the birds and added to the dust bath.
  • Do not apply to birds & poultry under 7 days old and apply sparingly to small birds.
  • Thoroughly dust the birds with the Red Mite Powder, avoiding the eyes. Repeat application as necessary dependant upon infestation and until you are on top of the problem.
  • Don't forget that red mite can live away from the bird for up to 36 weeks. Red Mite Powder can be used on other blood sucking pests such as Lice, Fleas and Ticks.

Staying power: Red Mite Powder contains minute slow release granules that can remain effective for up to six weeks - depending upon infestation and weather conditions.

Also Available As Liquid Concentrate Application : This product is also available as a Liquid Concentrate:
When diluting the concentrate always dilute the whole bottle in one go and use as directed.Shake diluted mix well before use and spray directly and evenly over the birds.

  • For ongoing maintenance: Dilute 1 part product to 50 parts water. (500ml bottle will make 25L of ready to use product).
  • Where infestation exists: Bring the dilution rate down to 1 part product to 20 parts water and repeat within 7 days.
  • Normally the product is applied via a knapsack sprayer and applied directly over the poultry.
  • Never use chemical based products in conjunction with natural products as the chemical will render natural products useless.

Have I got red mite? : An increase in feed consumption accompanied by a decrease in production/growth is signs that a poultry house should be examined for mites. They are often found by looking under loose clods of litter, under slats, in nests or in any cracks and crevices in the house structure. They are evident as tiny red to blackish dots often in clusters.

Hygiene: The risk of the red mite infestation can be reduced by a complete and effective farm hygiene programme, with regular health checks on bird intakes, careful examination to ensure any new equipment brought onto the farm is properly disinfected and effective measures against wild bird contamination. At depletion all equipment should be removed from the house and completely mucked out. Disinfection with our Barrier V1 is essential and the house equipment, slats and fabric of the building should be thoroughly cleaned off. An insecticide may then be used before restocking. With a flock in production that is showing signs of infestation, effective but safe control is essential. BHC based products such as carbaryl and lindane have now been withdrawn from the market and the remaining treatments, which are organo-phosphate compounds, should be avoided.

Life cycle: Red Mite are able to live away from birds for up to 36 weeks and so it is essential that application continues to prevent re-infestation.

Eggs: Red Mite infestation may cause eggs to be stained red with crushed mites or mite faeces, a decrease in egg production or pale coloured yoke.

Outside treatment: In warmer conditions, Red Mite can survive outdoors - even in grass. They will wait until treated areas are no longer a danger.

Treat housing and entrances regularly with Red Mite X Concentrate, designed especially for poultry housing.
