Can you have chickens without red mite? Is it an inevitable thing?

Have you had chickens and not had it?

It’s the number one thing putting me off rescuing some ex commercials. The thought of them makes my skin crawl!

Red mite can be completely prevented; I have a plastic Omlet coop, I clean it every week, I spray chicken friendly anti bug spray into any crevices and I've never had an issue.

My friend who has an old wooden coop is always battling red mite.
