    Predatory mite de Hypoaspis miles (also known by other names such as Stratiolaelaps scimitus) is a 100% biological control of blood lice. The predatory mite searches for the blood lice in the smallest corners and holes and is a fierce fighter of blood lice and almost always comes out as the winner of the battle. WHAT IS A HYPOASPIS MILES GROSS MILL The Hypoaspis miles is a soil predatory mite that is also known as Stratiolaelaps scimitus. This predatory mite focuses on a wide range of insects and is widely used in horticulture but can also be used as a natural enemy of the blood mite (blood lice). The Hypoaspis miles is a light brown-beige predatory mite and approx. 0.8 - 1 mm, the predatory mite is about the same in appearance at all stages of its life. This predatory mite occurs naturally in large parts of Europe and is a soil predatory mite. This means that it lives in the upper layer of soil up to 4 cm deep and can move quickly through and over the bottom. This predatory mite feels at home in moist (pot) soil, the humidity is therefore important for proper development and control. The Hypoaspis thrives best with an air humidity of 70% and preferably has high temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees. Under these circumstances, the predatory mite will multiply frequently and will best combat the blood lice. An adult Hypoaspis predator mite lives for an average of 6 weeks and is active at temperatures of 10 to 30 degrees. At higher or lower temperatures this predatory mite will be less active or go to rest. A population of this predatory mite consists of both males and females. If there is enough to eat, the females often lay eggs, the eggs are oval shaped. The eggs come out within 2-3 days and the young Hypoaspis nymphs are born. The nymphs develop into an adult predatory mite in about 5 to 6 days. The young nymphs are fierce predators immediately after birth, consuming eggs and small larvae of the blood louse. An adult Hypoaspis can consume up to 5 prey per day. QUANTITY OF PREDATORY MITE REQUIRED The required amount depends on the size of the loft and the amount of animals, in general we recommend 150 predatory mites per animal. The predatory mites are supplied in bags containing litter (a type of potting soil) containing the eggs, young and adult specimens of the predatory mite. The blood louse propagates exceptionally quickly in the summer. In warm weather, existing blood lice can multiply 10 to 100 times in 1-2 weeks. After the heat wave one can fight the plague, but the damage of the pest can not be undone afterwards. The prevention of sun pest is better. Preventive use of predatory mites can prevent a blood aphid infestation. In addition, it is important to put out predatory mites early in the spring. The infection pressure will then remain as low as possible. Stratiolaelaps scimitus preferably eats the larvae and nymphs of the blood lice and especially prevents the reproduction of the blood lice still present. Keep an eye on whether the predatory mites are still active after a few weeks, weekly inspection of the predatory mites is advisable. You can inspect the activity of the predatory mites as follows: take some soil out of the cupboard and place it on a white sheet / paper. View the material with a magnifying glass to see if there are still live predatory mites. Can you still find predatory mites then it is sufficient. It is possible that the predatory mites are extinct because of insufficient food or unfavorable weather conditions. If no predatory mites are perceptible, we recommend re-spreading predatory mites as long as the temperature allows this. The first result you will notice after about 2 weeks but complete eradication of the blood mite is very difficult. After about 2 weeks you can notice that the blood mites become restless and it seems that there is even an increase in blood mites, but this is a sign that the predatory mites have chased the mites out of their hiding places and that the predatory mites do their job well . RELEASING PREDATORY MITE IN THE ROOM It is important for good control to create a pleasant place for the predatory mites. If the predatory mites have a habitat where they can live then the control follows automatically. The expansion of the predatory mites is simple. The substrate must be evenly distributed in the pen or shed at the places where the blood lice resides during the day, such as: the birds' seats, nesting sites, where the manure falls, at the bottom of feeding troughs or gutters, but also close to cracks and cracks in the walls. The predatory mites actively search for the blood lice. The predatory mite works as follows, he approaches the blood louse and sticks it with his snout. The predatory mite administers the blood lice poison causing the blood lice to die. It may take some time before you notice the first result. A total destruction of the blood lice is very difficult to achieve, especially if there is a l there is a considerable amount of blood lice it is difficult to combat this in its total. However, it is an environmentally friendly treatment and it certainly has results. The effect of the treatment is usually visible after two to three weeks. After about 2 weeks you can notice that the blood lice become restless and it seems that there is even an increase, but this is a sign that the predatory mites have chased the lice out of their hiding places and that the predatory mites do their job well. After an effective control, the animals are less restless, the blood loss is reduced and caretakers of the animals will no longer be irritated by the blood lice. START EARLY BY SWITCHING OFF It is ideal to get the hutch in the spring free of lice so you can start with a clean slate in the spring. It is therefore important to use early, preventive predatory mites that tackle the existing eggs and larvae. Predatory mites work very well against blood lice as long as the population of blood lice is not that great. If there is a huge plague of blood lice then it will be a very difficult task for the predatory mites to counteract this. The blood lice propagate so quickly that the predatory mites are actually always behind the facts. The number of predatory mites must therefore be sufficient (in proportion) and they must be used early. The disadvantage of the predatory mites is that they, like the blood lice, do not keep cold temperatures. Also the predatory mite is only active of approx. 12 degrees. Our advice is to turn off the predatory mites in the spring in large numbers as soon as the temperature is around 12-15 degrees. Then you are at an early stage and you can put a brake on the growth of the blood lice. If there is already an infection of the blood lice, you have to expel the predatory mites as soon as possible to limit further growth of the infection. A complete eradication of a blood lice plague is very difficult, but the predatory mite as a natural enemy is a very good way to limit the damage. THE (CHICKEN) HOUSING FOR AN EFFECTIVE COMBATING Empty the entire loft, remove all the sprinkle and hay Disinfect the loft with a disinfectant, treat the loft with steam or water at least 70 degrees, or use a paint strip dryer to burn out the seams and cracks (think of a fire hazard!). The blood lice and eggs are mainly in the seams, cracks and crevices of the loft during the day. Give these spots extra attention when disinfecting. Our advice is to seal these seams as closely as possible with a silicone sealant after disinfection. The fewer cracks and cracks there are the better. Also consider the sticks on which the chickens are and clean them with, for example, thin chlorine. A tip is to make the perches floating (eg with wires on the ceiling) so that the blood louse can not crawl in the perch. Fill the loft with new straw, sawdust or hay. Repeat this procedure if necessary, especially in hot weather to clean the loft more often. Good hygiene works preventively against blood lice. Do not put the predatory mites out immediately after cleaning, even the predatory mites do not like chlorine or other cleaning agents. USER INSTRUCTION After receiving your order, the predatory mites must be removed as soon as possible. Lightly rotate / shake the bag before use. Open the bag with predatory mites by cutting a corner of the bag. The substrate must be evenly distributed in the pen or the shed at the places where the blood lice resides during the day, such as, for example: the seats of the animals, in nesting places, at places where the manure falls, at the bottom of feeding troughs or gutters, but also close to cracks and cracks in walls. During the scattering you can see through the transparent part how many predatory mites are still in the bag. This way you can carefully and dosed the predatory mites. The substrate may not be spread in the manure because the predatory mites do not survive if they are covered with too much manure. They only survive in the top 2 cm of the manure. Removal of the manure during the first 2-3 days after the removal of the predatory mites must be avoided because the predatory mites require several weeks to adapt to the stable environment. How often you have to expel the predatory mites depends on several factors, including the duration and the severity of the infection pressure. The predatory mites feel at home in slightly damp soil, advice is to keep the soil moist by regularly spraying the soil. Remember that the soil is not too wet! The Hypoaspis predatory mites are active from 10 degrees but only come into action at a soil temperature of 15 degrees. The optimal temperature is between 20 to 30 degrees. 26 degrees is the most ideal for development. STORAGE ADVICE Biological control agents are live animals and have a (very) short life span and therefore must be in the crop as soon as possible after receiving them
