With the summer months approaching, proactive pigeon fanciers are gearing themselves up for the invasion of red mite, which frequently invade lofts, cages, hutches and coops at this time of the year.
Frequent inspections and cleaning of accommodation to prevent as well as treating the problem will go a long way to ensuring birds stay healthy and not affected by the many health problems associated with red mite.
Harkers has recently launched Ridmite, a non-insecticidal liquid concentrate which helps prevent and remove mites from pigeon lofts and is also useful for poultry houses and small animal hutches etc. Perfectly safe for use without removing the birds, Ridmite also works as a multi-purpose cleaner, sanitizer and odour eliminator.
The concentrated liquid needs diluting before use and once applied will cleanse an area within 48 hours and continue to protect for up to six weeks.
