An infestation of red mite (Dermanyssus Gallinae), will cause a drop in egg production, and according to the severity, even mortality. The mites are blood feeders and attack resting birds at night. The life cycle of a red mite is not dependent on the host. They live and breed in crevices, as near to their meal as possible. The mite progresses through five life stages: egg, larva, protonymph, deutonymph and adult. Under favorable conditions this life cycle can be complete within seven days, so populations can grow rapidly - causing anemia in badly affected flocks of poultry that presents as pallor of the comb and wattle. Apart from causing a drop or cessation in egg production, when entering the house disturbed mite will bite the intruder. A monthly check under each end of the perches will indicate any mite establishment. Only those that have sucked blood will be red; the others are grey in color. At night they run along the perch, up the chicken's leg and onto the flesh, where they bite into a blood vessel and suck blood until full. They then return to the crevice and stay there until another meal is required. They do not live on the bird so will not be found by examining the bird during the day. Birds suffering from the presence of large numbers of red mite look pale and jaundiced through loss of blood. A post-mortem show only a skin that looks as though it has been profusely pricked with a fine needle. Red mite have been known to lie dormant for up to ten years, and for this reason use of RIDofMITE® is strongly recommended by our scientist.
