I recently had a problem with red mite in my chicken coop. I tried a few products from online websites claiming to get rid of red mite but none worked. I used this product and havent looked back since. I treated the coop in a matter of minutes and used it on the birds themselves and in their dust bath trays. My coop is now mite free. Its such a fantastic product, you can add to their feed to control internal paracites like worms and externally on the chickens themselves. Its a natural product too but you need to wear a face mask when applying as it can be harmful if you inhale it. Once the powder has settled then you can take the dust mask off. Forget nasty sprays this is all you need.
Definitely worth buying this puffer bottle - it holds more than you'd expect and distributes the product well (distributing it any other way is, quite frankly, tricky!). Be sure to keep shaking the product down as the DE powder is so fine it regularly clogs up the hole with powder-mass. I refilled from the 1kg tub with a spoon and basic plastic funnel. DE itself very good for absorbing moisture and deterring fleas etc.
This was bought in conjunction with the 1kg Diatomaceous Earth as they are not obtainable locally. Am giving a proposed 5 star rating although the hens had no lice or mites when this product was first used. Having always grown and bought organically I am hoping this will be my preferred and permanent eradicator hen 'pests'.
Does what it says on the packet! We had tried everything but after two applications our troublesome deep pile rug was pest free. Excellent and far cheaper than similar products.
Weird powder that is a natural product and seems to work. Recommend it!
This product is a great worming treatment, unlike over the counter or vet issued products which made my dog ill. Sprinkled on food daily (and eaten readily), would definately recommend.
Was despatched very quickly and well packaged.
Excellent product and excellent seller.
Although we have had no signs of parasites on our girls, we use this powder as a preventative measure, putting it in their dust baths and inside the Eglu after a full clean out. Surprised at the pleasant scent! A good product for the price - well worth having.
Easy to aim when squirting into nest box...
Shake a bit over food...
I hope it's working!
