Prefer the disinfectant - Ruth,

This is ok but very messy and hard to use on vertical surfaces and inside the roof. I prefer the spray disinfectant.

Puffer doesn't work - Aly,

I can't comment on the efficacy as I've only just used it today but the puffer doesn't work at all. If you stand it upright and puff it's not too bad but hardly any comes out. Bit frustrating but hopefully it will do the job.

Pretty good - Jon,

It has been pretty effective regarding the reduction of flea reduction. I just wish that there was something that would eradicate the damn things completely. I did think of a flamethrower but I quite like our house!

Not that effective - Christine,

Cleans Chicken house OK, but does not seem to be dealing with the mites. I've had to revert to an old fashioned dusting powder for that.

Diatomaceous earth - Lesley,

Diatomaceous - An Omleteer,

Still in the early stages of using it so have only given it a 3 star, but hoping to up grade it to a 5 star. Was very pleased with the delivery, ordered it one day and received it the next. Very impressed. Thanks.

Diatomaceous Earth - An Omleteer,

I ordered Diatomaceous Earth and it arrived the following day. Great. I added it to the chickens bedding and all the parasites seem to have gone. I have tried to get the chickens interested in a bath containing Diatomaceous Earth but so far no luck. Any suggestions ? I have tried new sand and old sand and a mix of both leaving it in where they normally scratch but no luck. It is early days yet.

Mite work, mite not - An Omleteer,

This powder is easy to use, especially if you also get the smaller size and use the big pot to refill it. It squirts out of the smaller pot so can be easily directed into the nooks and crannies of your Eglu. However, I'm not sure how effective it is because I have been coating the inside of the Eglu Cube and food bowl with it every week for about a month and there are still some mites in the bottom of the Eglu every week when I clean it out. It may be that there would have been more mites if I hadn't used the powder, but it hasn't been 100% effective. However, I haven't managed to coat the chickens in it too, so maybe it would have worked better then.

Diatomaceous Earth - An Omleteer,

I have found the instruction very vague so I'm not sure if I have used it correctly as a worming powder, or if it has worked.
