My chook house is inundated (slight exaggeration perhaps) with tiny flies, they have wings but seem to fly very badly and more leap about.
I don't know what they are, and having never seen a louse or mite I suppose that is what they might be.
I drenched them all in Poultry shield last clean and that seemed to put pay to the critters, but have been v.ill with a chest infection and they were overdue a clean - cleaned them today and there were a few flies in there again.
Scrubbbed the whole lot out with Jeyes fluid today - kinder on the lungs than sprayin with PS (?) so they are gone again now.
