I am in need of help! I can Not get rid of mites🥺! I have tried permethrin and even splurged for the elector psp both with no results. I have emptied the coop completely, scrubbed it totally, doused it with elector, sprayed the chickens and repeated a week later. I believe the mites are laughing at me😢. I used 2t per gallon of water. They are not free range (as I lost one of my girls to a Fischer last season). I have 8 girls (lavender Orpington, Australorp, English Orpington, EE, Speckled Sussex, Cochin) I’m The run is about 20x20, the coop 8x10. I use tractor supply shavings for the floor of the coop and the nesting boxes. I use sweet pdz under the roosts. I keep a very clean coop. Can someone tell me what I’ve done wrong please, and what I should be doing. My poor girls☹️! Thank you for and and all input!!
Do they have dust baths? Those help.

Are you 100% sure it's mites? Have you seen them? What kind of mites? Not all mites get the same treatment.

And might it be a reinfestation? Could be a rat infestation.
