    I used MannaPro poultry protector last year for mites on my Guinea fowl. I used it to spray my coop down and it seemed to work well; however, I used it in combination with diatomaceous earth which I scattered around the coop after the poultry protector had dried. I also used sevin dust in their dust bath area to kill the mites that were already on the Guineas. Because I used it in combination with other things, I cannot say how effective it would be if used alone. I have not had any further issues with mites since then, but I put diatomaceous earth, and occasionally sevin dust, in their dust bath area to keep the mites away. (I am much more proactive because it is such a pain to get rid of mites once you have an infestation!)
