Red Mite powder - Diatom /Smite powder /Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is an organic powder used for the effective control of a wide range of crawling insects including: red mite, bedbugs, cockroaches, ants, mites, silverfish, spiders, centipedes, fleas, and grain storage insects.   It is very absorbent and effectively dehydrates parasites which causes them to dry out and die.  DE can be applied directly onto your pet or in bedding, nest boxes, dust baths and housing.  It also has many household and garden uses too.  Diatomaceous Earth comprises of the fossilized shells of ancient aquatic algae (diatoms).

 

We suggest using Poultry Shield or Smite first, to disinfect and kill red mite/red mite eggs, then when dry, apply Diatom/Smite powder to nest boxes and the chicken house floor, apply thoroughly in cracks and crevices, and re-treat every week as part of your weekly cleaning routine, and/or use in purpose made dust baths where the birds will get a constant covering when dust bathing. As with all powder applications, we always suggest you use a face mask.
