Red mite
#1
Sad 
The bloomin' red mite are back!! And with a vengence. I'm going to have to gut the hen house this weekend and give it a good spray - hoping for some dry weather to let me get on with it. I hate it when the critters land on my face when collecting eggs.  Angry

Yeuk - that's some infestation !
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !

Horrible! They seem to creep up suddenly!

I have found that soaking the houses in diluted dettol when i clean out seems to work. They come creeping out. Its lovely having a brand new redmite free henhouse but i am still spraying with dettol to keep them at bay. Watch this space....
It never worries me when I get a little lost, all I do is change where I'm going
