For the control of red mites in your poultry houses we recommend using Appletons De-Mite Powder. Dust on perches and in nesting areas in poultry houses. The mites will crawl through the powder to get to the birds. The powder scratches the red mites waxy outer covering of their exoskeletons causing them to slowly dehydrate and die. This product is 100% natural and can be used safely in organic systems. Their is no withholding period for meat or eggs.
We recommend first santising the hen house with Poultry Shield or Smite Professional and then when dry applying the Appletons De-Mite Powder on perches, in nestbox bedding and floor litter especially if your birds huddle on the floor at night. Dust Appletons De-Mite Powder into all the corners, joints around the house, perches, nest boxes. Best used in conjunction with Poultry Shield or Smite Pro. We apply weekly to our hen houses and coops to keep on top of the mites.
Available in a 350g jar with scoop, a 1kg economy pack with scoop and a bulk 5kg box.
