For a life without red mites
What is Anti Red Mite Drinkmix
Anti Red Mite Drink Mix stimulates the bird’s immune system in such a way that a protein is produced that is not digestible for the aphid. The blood of the mite coagulates by taking the blood of the bird. Anti Red Mite Drink Mix ensures that the bird is less sensitive to stress.
Anti Red Mite Drink Mix contains a mixture of herbal extracts and vitamin C. The combination of these herbs stimulates the immune system, has an antioxidant and antimicrobial effect and supports the skin’s healing capacity. Due to the activation of the immune system, the bird is able to produce a protein that is not digestible for the red mite. As a result, the development of bird mites will stagnate and the population will decline. In addition, extra vitamin C leads to a reduction in the hormone corticosterone, which is also known as the stress hormone. This makes the bird less sensitive to stress.
Characteristics of the red mite
The red mite is currently one of the most harmful parasites in both the national and international poultry sector. The red mite needs several blood meals to be able to develop into an adult red mite, after which the females can lay eggs. The bird is the ideal source for these blood meals, but this has negative consequences for the bird itself. The red mite can draw about 0.2 milligram of blood per feeding, which means that with a high population of red mites a considerable part of the total blood volume of the bird can be absorbed per night. This often leads to a weakened and irritated bird, unrest in the aviary and ultimately reduced technical results. Good control is therefore crucial. However, many pesticides are currently under pressure due to possible resistance and danger to human and animal health. A good natural alternative to these pesticides is Vita Vogel’s Anti Red Mite Drink Mix!
