Alphamites DW – How does it work?
It works by making the blood indigestible to the mites, thereby depriving them of their feed. With Alphamites DW you can turn your layers themselves into living, breathing red mite repellents.
- Natural solution – Alphamites DW is made from plant extracts and, as such, is non-toxic to chickens, the user, and the environment.
- Doesn’t create resistance.
- Dramatically reduced labour – Alphamites DW is administered via drinking water, thus removing the need for time-consuming manual spraying of layers.
- Low addition rates – 500mL per 1000 litres of water during use.
- Fast acting – You will start to see the results within 1 week.
- Cost effective – Cost of treatment is lower than using chemical sprays, including the negative impact of those sprays on performance.
If you have red mite problems on your farm, please contact our friendly staff for more information.
