Appletons De-Mite Powder



Appletons De-Mite Powder

For long-lasting residual control of red mite and other external parasites in poultry housing
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, DE based and can be used safely in organic systems. There is no withholding period for meat or eggs.
We recommend first sanitising the hen house with Poultry Safeguard Concentrate or Smite Concentrate or Poultry Shield and when surfaces are dry apply the Appletons De-Mite Powder. Use hand application (wear a glove!) or our handy powder applicator and sprinkle/rub on perches and in nest box bedding. Apply to floor litter only if birds huddle/sleep on the floor at night. Dust Appletons De-Mite Powder into all the corners and timber joins around the house, perches, nest boxes. We apply weekly to our hen houses and coops to keep on top of the mites.
Can also be used effectively in poultry dust bowls/baths to aid with external parasite control. Available in 350g, 1kg and 5kg.
