Hi everyone so my chickens are currently going through the red mite situation however I’m dealing with it quickly I had cleaned out there coop with home products using fairy soap scrubbing it onto the coop , using vinegar on the coop then boiling water to clean it out and lastly flea repellent the next day I had chicken flea spray to clear out the chicken coop and the surrounding area as well as directly onto the chickens as instructed. The coop seems to be clearing out very well and I don’t see mites just a few remaining and I will have another mite spray coming tomorrow to spray over the coop and chickens again. The issue is I have noticed I have red mites on me now I use gloves whenever I go out and clean things or handle the chickens I been having showers everyday but still have them I’m afraid they maybe have come into the house aswell how do I treat this mess it’s hard enough treating the chickens but now me!
