    [​IMG]Red Mites
    Hi all,my name is Claire and I live in the UK.We have 3 Silver Sussex,1 Rhondda Blue,1 Rhondda Ranger and 1 Sussex Pont.
    Has anyone got any tips on getting rid of red mites??? We have jetwashed,disinfected,dusted coop and chickens but we need to redo it this weekend for the 7 day cycle but they are on the fencing too now.I know the old fashioned creasote worked but you cant get that anymore but will need to cover fence in something as the mites are getting on our clothes!! The girls are called Nessa,Adele,Sugar(tits),Millie,Alyson and Sadie.:) For anyone that knows me would not believe how much I love our girls and would never imagine me scooping chicken poop and wearing wellies!!!:D

    Hi there...I'm in South Wales in the UK.We bought some Smite to spray it down with but need to re paint the fencing as it's gone a bit bare after jetwashing and heard Creasote was ok but only the oldfashioned one.
