    i stepped into the coop to clean it and there were mites crawling all over my feet(had flip-flops on). we're going to buy something to spray it with, then i'll clean it out. what's the best way to keep mites out?

    Use DE or a mixture of DE and 5% Sevin Dust. Do a search, there are numerous post in Predators and Pest about the subject. Good Luck.
