Though article is good but i am not convinved by alternative remedy suggested. we approach has to be directed against the mites. we should have a product which kills adult mites,larvae & eggs. In india, patented phytoacaridical technologies have been developed. such technologies have been successfully used in tick control & have yielded encourgaing results in red mite control.Such novel phytoacaricidal technologiues are based on biactive phytomiticides. these act on all life cycle stages of the red mite & is virtually a breakthough in sustainable mite amangement in poultry.
