    I anm freaked out with these gray speck like insects on my hand from going near a hen of mine. What are they, how do I help my flock, and I had her in my cement basement. Do I need to call an exterminator?

    Sounds like mites...Permethrin spray will deal with them in your basement...you should dust your chickens with Permethrin powder...pay special attention to under their wings and around their vents..remove and burn all bedding and re--treat in 7 10 days...

    Hope that helps!

    This should be posted in the Emergencies etc forum...

    I don't believe so, there are always threads in this section regarding mites and bugs it would fall under Predators and PESTS.

    The OP originally posted in the

    BYC Website And Forum Feedbacks and Announcements...I asked for a Moderator to move to Emergencies etc...they moved it here to Predators and Pests...which is more appropriate...

    I was not asking for this to be moved from this forum...
