15 Used for bantam chickens
Verified Purchase

By Darren Willoughby on 19 October 2014

Was recommended to use this for mites. Used two drops on each of my bantams and didn't have any effect. Tried a second dose after a few weeks still no joy. Unfortunately my little chooks still got mites. This was also used in conjunction with usual other products for housing and mite powder too. :-(

Use in chickens?

VioVet Visitor

Can this be used on chickens.for red mite?

  • Non-Executive Director

Red mites spend most of their time not on the birds, but in nooks a crannies near to where birds roost. It is better to apply a suitable product to the perches etc, but the Harka-Mectin will be effective against mites which climb onto the birds to feed.
