The Adams spray can usually be found in any pet shop or feed/supply store, Amazon has it as well.  The Insectrin X for the coop is a concentrated spray that you mix up, I also bought it on Amazon.  I've only had to treat a case of mites a couple of times in many years.  But that is what prompted me to spray my coops twice a year when I do a complete cleanout.  My birds get a spray of Adams under each wing and the vent area each time I deworm which is usually three times a year.

My heart goes out to you and your birds right now, @CochinLover1

My coop was infested severely, about a year ago. It caused so much stress (and I too cried myself to sleep on a couple occasions). I lost one hen to the infestation, and when I held a bird and ended up with hundreds of those pesky mites crawling up my arm, I had had enough. I was very close to getting rid of all of my birds. But several thorough dustings of sevin throughout the coop and the birds, and scrubbing every crevice in my coop seemed to finally take care of the infestation once and for all.

My best is sent to you. Fight those mites! wink.png
