The Vencomatic Group Q-Perch is a mechanical solution that controls red mites based on their natural lifecycle. The perch containis two barriers that kill the red mites on their journey towards the chicken. A small electrical current runs through the barriers, lethal for red mites; the chickens cannot come into contact with the current. Since the red mites cannot reproduce without feed, the population never increases, making the use of pesticides redundant with this solution. The mushroom shape of the Q-Perch is a comfortable shape for chickens, as it offers stability and grip.
