Red mite cheap hen house solution

Like if this guide is helpful
2011 seems to be the year of the red mite. They are huge in number and are becoming a problem for humans and birds!
Our quick-fix and affordable solution has been to burn the lovely quaint wooden hen house, and house the chickens in a compost bin ~ no crevices for red mite to hide in and super easy to clean. Our compost bin sits inside a chicken wire cage so it's foxproof, and I made a simple perch that sits inside.
