How can I tackle Northern Fowl Mite?
If you do spot any Northern Fowl Mite act fast, clean your coop weekly and treat for any possible lice problems using the Nettex Total Mite and Lice 4 step regime.
- Thoroughly clean out the coop with Nettex DEFRA Approved Virocur Disinfectant, remove all faeces, dry matter and bedding.
- Spray the entire coop with Nettex Total Mite Kill Ready to Use Solution- this will disinfect as well as eradicate mites and lice. Both products contain a coating agent which will continue to act on the mites even after it has dried – therefore always shake the product before diluting the concentrate and before each use.
- Sprinkle Nettex Buz Busters Louse Powder liberally over the surface of bedding, perches and nest boxes and refill with fresh bedding. It’s also important to include the Total Hygiene Powder in dust baths.
- Additionally, use Nettex Total Mite Kill Aerosol Spray monthly to treat hard to reach areas of the housing such as cracks and crevices. This high velocity spray will penetrate deep into these areas where mites like to hide. A regular routine like this will help keep the lice at bay and ensure that your flock is parasite-free and healthy.
