Application rates and delivery

Harmonix® Poultry Red Mite can be applied in poultry houses and broilers with birds present giving ease of application and avoiding stress caused to birds by moving them.


It contains an advanced food grade cellulose polymer and penetrates dusty layers typically found within hen houses and spreads deep into cracks and crevices that harbour mites. In addition to broilers and laying facilities, transport and transport equipment used to transfer pullet birds should also be targeted, as these are hot spots for poultry red mite transfer.

Apply the product as a surface spray using a suitable mechanical, electrical or motorized sprayer capable of producing a coarse spray quality. Direct the spray over clusters of poultry mites and crevices/ dusty sections where poultry mites are aggregating.
