Spray those mites
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 00:00
Johnson’s Poultry Housing Spray is an HSE-approved, licensed product designed to kill mites, lice, fleas, larvae and other insects in the hen house.
The spray contains a long-acting insect growth regulator, which prevents hatching eggs and larvae developing, and is claimed to provide several months’ protection.
Birds and bedding should be removed from the housing before spraying a fine mist on to all surfaces, after which it needs to be left for at least 30 minutes.
Once completely dried and aired, add fresh bedding before allowing the birds access once again. This product is just one of an interesting new range launched by Midlands-based Johnson’s Veterinary Products Ltd and available in pets shops and garden centres.
