For long lasting residual control of red mites and other external parasites in poultry.
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 dafely in organic systems. Their is no withholding period for meat or eggs.
We recommend first cleaning the house with Poultry Shield or Smite then when dry applying the Appletons De-Mite Powder on perches and in nestbox bedding and if required the floor litter. Puff Appletons De-Mite Powder into all the corners, joints around the house, perches, nest boxes. Best used in conjunction with Poultry Shield or Smite. 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.
We would not be without our De-Mite Powder. It works a treat!
