Feather Mites are difficult to get rid of as they thrive in areas other than just the horse itself. They will thrive in stable bedding, horse blankets and even the equipment used for grooming.
To ensure that the infestation is completely removed, all these areas require to be treated.
Before applying LM Clear, use equipment you are sure is clear of feather mite infestation to clean and groom the affected areas.
Spray daily for seven days.
Other practical things to do.
When thinking about feather mites it is advisable to think about head lice in children. The reason is because if you treat your child and rid their head of lice, if other other areas where the lice are prevalent are left untreated such as pillows and bedding etc, the child will soon have the lice again. Therefore it is essential to take other precautions.
We suggest the following…
Clip excess hair near the affected areas
Change the horses bedding.
Wash the blankets, rugs and grooming equipment
Clean the floors with our stable wash
Although LM Clear is completely safe to use we advise to avoid direct contact with eyes and it should be kept out of reach of children.
