Product Description

Scaly Leg Spray is a wonderful ready to use insect repellent for use against
Scaly Leg Mite on poultry and other birds.
Will effectively rid the birds of mite, whilst soothing and calming
irritation. Will not taint eggs. Suitable for use in Organic Systems.

Prevention is always the best option. Scaly Leg caused by Cnemidocoptes
mutans affects chickens, turkeys, game and cage birds. Check for the tell
tail signs of crusty, white deposits on enlarged, rough and lumpy legs where
the scales have become raised. Living entirely on the bird Scaly Leg Mite
cause pain and intense irritation for the bird as they burrow under the
scales and into the skin of the legs and sometimes the comb and wattles. In
severe cases of infestation the birds find it difficult to walk, may lose a
toe and become severely deformed. Evident as tiny white spherical creatures
with a diameter of less than 0.5mm Scaly Leg Mite are difficult to spot in
the early stages and that is why we recommend you use this spray as a
deterrent as well as to treat an existing problem.

Scaly Leg Mites affect birds of all ages, although older birds and feathered
leg breeds tend to be more susceptible. Affected birds should be isolated
and all housing cleared and thoroughly cleaned.

Suitable for use in both organic and intensive farming systems. This product
falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as
active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council
Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended) and is therefore suitable to use in
organic systems.

Directions for use:
Affected birds should be isolated. SHAKE WELL and spray the legs generously
from the hocks down. Scaly Leg mite can also attack the comb and wattles.
For general maintenance: Spray the legs, comb and wattles every few weeks,
avoiding the eyes.
When buying in birds always check them very carefully and treat them as a
matter of course before introducing them to clean birds.
Where infestation exists: Spray the legs, comb and wattles directly and
evenly, avoiding the eyes. Repeat every 5 - 6 days to break the egg cycle.
