Monitoring Mites

Fast treatment is vital in red mite infestations, as new generations of mites are introduced every 10 days. There are many methods for monitoring infestations that can detect first mites, record population dynamics, and help determine when to treat and the effectiveness of treatment. These methods include: 

  • Mite monitoring score – Poultry Red Mites
  • Mite traps – Poultry Red Mites
  • Examining feathers, dust and dried droppings – Poultry Red Mites and Northern Fowl Mites

Once an infestation is monitored sufficiently, treatment methods can be applied.

Many factors contribute to the introduction and spread of mites.
