Just got back from vacation and found millions of brown mites all over the basement where I've been quarantining 3 chickens I got at a swap on 08.01.10. Found out they had worms and assumed they had mites. I treated them with Wazine for worms in their water and permethrin dust for the mites on 08.21.10. On 08.31.10 I retreated them with the permethrin dust and gave them each a hefty dose of ivermectin/praziquantel. Today I got home from a 3 day "vacation" and found the cardboard box brooder and the floor COVERED in brown small mites. Covered. And really really thick. I just took them out and put them in a small wire cage on newspaper and dusted them with permethrin again. Now I don't know what to do. I'm certain I'm just spreading the mites (especially when I tried to burn the cardboard box in my woodstove, gave up on that quickly). I don't have anywhere else to quarantine these guys so it has to be in my incredibly infested basement. Should I leave them in the really small and uncomfortable wire cage? Please help. Thank you.
