    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! Good question...I don't know if you use it as a preventative or after you've seen your first mite. You might want to post in the link below for better advice than I can give. Good luck to you!

    [​IMG] you would also treat bedding, building and the chickens individually, if you actually have a problem or occasionally as a preventive.
