Apply directly onto birds or sprinkle liberally in the nest box, on top of the bedding and in the dust bath.
This will apply powder directly to the birds.
Product should also be used in the corners, cracks and crevices of the housing.
In times of infestation, apply initially, repeat 3 days later and then use weekly as part of your regular cleaning routine.
For effective removal of the constant threat of Mites and Lice, a weekly 3 step programme is advised as below:
1. Thoroughly clean out the coop with soap and water, use Nettex Virocur Disinfectant, DEFRA approved effective against diseases in Poultry for a deeper clean and remove all faeces, dry matter and bedding.
2. Spray the entire coop with Nettex Total Mite Kill Ready To Use Solution - this will disinfect as well as eradicate mites. This product contains a coating agent which will continue to act on the mites even after it has dried – therefore always shake the product before each use. Never use Nettex Total Mite Kill Ready To Use Solution directly on the birds – it is for application to housing only. Always ventilate treated areas and allow them to dry fully (they dry very quickly) before returning any birds to the treated area. Additionally, use Nettex Total Mite Kill Spray Aerosol to treat hard to reach areas of the housing such as cracks and crevices.
3. Finally, apply Nettex Total Hygiene Powder liberally over the surface of bedding, perches and nest boxes and refill with fresh bedding. It’s also important to add Nettex Total Hygiene Powder in dustbaths. Use Nettex Louse Powder instead when dealing with Lice and Northern Fowl Mite.
