Ever use Malathion to prevent roost mites?
Below is an excerpt from the site posted...it has quite a bit of information on the little pests:
Insecticides also work against roost mites. Malathion and pyrethrins both work and are relatively non-toxic to the birds and humans. They also break down fairly quickly. Sevin works, but you're not supposed to use it around eggs. As always with chemicals, read the label and follow the directions. (Different insecticides are legal or illegal in different countries, with little rhyme or reason that I can see. Follow local regulations, or at least be furtive.)
I had kill on my mind........it does have ideas for prevention such as different oils like linseed, motor and others.
Personally, we would never use an organophosphate in or near our flocks.
