Migrating water fowl – most notably wild ducks – are the natural carriers of the bird flu viruses. It is suspected that infection can spread from wild fowl to domestic poultry.
To combat the spread of disease, Flame Engineering recommends that poultry farmers take measures to sanitize their poultry houses. When considering an effective Biosecurity Program, it is essential that the treatment is effective since the bird flu can survive for considerable lengths of time outside the host and birds can be infected through a number of methods, including contact with other birds, contact with vehicles and equipment and contact with farm personnel.
The PL 8750 Red Dragon Poultry House Sanitizer has been proven to eliminate pathogen, bacteria, and viruses including the Avian Influenza. The Poultry House Sanitizer uses clean burning propane as fuel to generate 1400° under the unit housing to kill all potential threats. The Poultry House Sanitizer is a product that can help with biosecurity.
