Use in chickens?

Can this be used on chickens.for red mite?

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.
