If you turn your hens over and liberally sprinkle them with garlic power(not garlic salt, we arent baking here!..)you turn them over and hold them by their feet so the feathers fall away from the skin and the powder goes against their skin under the feathers. the mites will abandon ship , so to speak .if you turn your hen over in your arms and hold her back down, like you would cradle a small child, with your hand on her chest for a few moments she will relax and you can gently lift her by her feet (some hens prefer to have their head supported while upside down some don't care a bit .)if one of the ladies wants her head supported it makes this a two person job .done after roosting ive never even had a hen notice , and have done it many times to make sure i dont get mites.i lived in a very prone rural area.

You may be able to find DE at your local Agway. I'm not sure whether you've got one nearby, give it a try. They've usually got a fair selection of tools and supplies. Good luck.
