Product description

5kg Diatom Powder (Diatomaceous Earth) Why not buy 10kg of Diatom powder and save over £2 /kg? Diatomaceous Earth is an effective control against many mite and lice problems associated with poultry including red mite. Sprinkle Diatom powder on the floor of the house at a the rate of 50g per square meter. It can also be added to the bottom of nest boxes and the hens favourite dust bath. Used in this manor the chickens will self medicate and reduce the need to handle them. Alternatively, diatom powder can be applied directly to the bird using the 450g diatom puffer pack. Diatom powder (Diatomaceous Earth) has the effect on mites of walking across shards of glass. Their outer waxy coating soon becomes damaged and they die from dehydration. Because it is an inert mineral there is no egg withdrawal or chemical residue to consider although we recommend you wear gloves when handling diatom powder. To apply diatom powder to your chickens you'll find decanting it into a smaller container makes life simpler 450g diatom powder pufferis ideal for this or use a bobby duster dust applicator If you are dealing with an infestation of Red Mite we recommend you use poultry shieldas an initial control followed by diatom powder (Diatomaceous Earth)
