What are the red mite's impacts on poultry?

Red mites can have a significant impact on poultry, including:

  • Reduced egg production: Red mites can feed on chickens at night, causing stress and reducing their overall health, which can result in decreased egg production.

  • Anemia: Red mites feed on the blood of chickens, which can lead to anemia and decreased immunity.

  • Increased risk of diseases: Red mites can transmit diseases from one chicken to another, increasing the risk of infection in your flock.

  • Uncomfortable and distressed birds: The constant presence of red mites can cause stress and discomfort to your birds, impacting their overall health and wellbeing.

  • Poor egg quality: The presence of red mites can impact the quality of your eggs, making them unmarketable and reducing your overall profits.

By using Nor-Mite Liquid, you can effectively control red mites and prevent these negative impacts on your poultry and egg production.

Aside from the egg, poultry red mites have four life-cycle stages: larvae, protonymph, deutonymph and adult.

Larvae hatch with six legs and do not feed but after the first moult, both nymphal stages and adults have eight legs. Protonymphs, deutonymphs and adult females routinely feed on host blood, but males only occasionally feed.

Once on a host, mites feed for short periods of up to an hour, doing so every two to four days and typically during periods of darkness. Complete development of D. gallinae, from egg to adult through one larval stage and two nymphal stages, typically occurs over two weeks.

What are the flies' impacts on piggery?

The presence of flies in a piggery can have several negative impacts, including:

  • Spread of diseases: Flies can carry and spread diseases to pigs, potentially causing outbreaks of illness and reducing the overall health of the herd.

  • Stress: Flies can be a nuisance to pigs, causing them to become stressed and reducing their overall well-being.

  • Reduced feed intake: The presence of flies can cause pigs to become distracted and reduce their feed intake, negatively impacting their growth and weight gain.

  • Reduced quality of pork: When pigs are stressed and have reduced growth, the quality of their pork can be negatively impacted.

  • Economic losses: The combined impact of reduced feed intake, decreased growth, and reduced pork quality can result in significant economic losses for pig farmers.

Overall, controlling the fly population in a piggery is crucial for maintaining the health and productivity of the herd.
