Dergall - Our best-selling Red Mite treatment!
Dergall controls and manages red mites, northern fowl mite and scaly leg mites in chickens. Red mites are nocturnal, which means they’re most active at night, so you may not have seen them in your hen house. Red mites feed of your hen’s blood. This is highly irritating for hens, causing agitation and preventing them from resting. If left untreated, red mites can induce a drop in egg production, cause stress and eventually anaemia through excessive blood loss, and in very extreme cases, your hens may die.
Dergall works by mechanically immobilising the red mites. The formula is pesticide and poison free and the reduction of population is visible within 72 hours from the initial application. If you have a large mite population, whether it is red mites, northern fowl mite or scaly leg mite we recommend using the product and then repeat 5-7 days later, to destroy any newly hatched mites which were missed or subsequently hatched after the first spraying.
To use, sweep out the hen house and dispose of any bedding, then mix the Dergall solution into a small sprayer and mist spray all internal areas focusing on crevices and particularly the perches, as mites travel along the perches to crawl onto your hen’s feet. A tip is to spray Dergall at night when the mites are their most active.
Dergall is a concentrated product that needs diluting before use – Please read the back of the pack before using.
