Not sure I'm putting this in the right place ...
Have never seen any bugs on my chickens or in the coops. Dusting with DE since day one.
I keep very clean runs and coops with sand in the runs and under roost bars and scoop every day.
We have had a lot of rain lately and the sand in runs is now packed down.
When I go to clean up the poop is packed down and LOADED with white mites! Round bodies so I am sure it is mites.
I want to super dust with 5% Sevin but we are due to have another week of rain and storms. Not raining now but will be later today.
Do I need to wait until the rain is over for a few days? Creepy creepy creepy!
