Our best selling coop cleaner and it dissolves red mites on contact.
Red mites reproduce rapidly. These nasty bugs don’t live on your chickens but hide in the framework of your coop, perches and nest boxes, only coming out at night to feed on the blood of your birds. The result is they become stressed, suffering anaemia, reducing egg production and even death if not treated.
Red mites are also very difficult to control, so Appletons have developed Poultry SAFEguard which dissolves mites on contact. It’s also a powerful disinfectant, killing bacteria, viruses and odour in coops.
Appletons Poultry SAFEguard is New Zealand made and best of all it is very economical. It is a concentrate which you mix with water as you need it - you get approximately 64 litres of maintenance solution from our 1-litre containers and as a mite treatment approximately 20 litres, and that makes it a lot more cost-effective when compared to other similar available products.
Poultry Safeguard is a blend of high foaming surfactants, sequestrates and alkaline builders and quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) which effectively dissolves waxy accumulations and is effective against a range of microbes (including Avian Influenza Virus, Avian Infectious Bronchitis and Newcastle’s disease) and micro-organisms including bacteria, mildew, moulds and fungi. There is no egg withholding period.
Available in 500ml, 1L and 5L Concentrate bottles.
Great service, great product
Great service quick delivery 🚚
After one application, the chooks were happy again! Gave a second spray out a week later just to be sure though. Great product
I must have got quite a bad infestation because while following all instructions for applying the safeguard, within a few days red mites abound again. Does seem to kill on contact, though having to apply nearly every day.
Excellent product if used as directed: Effective and reasonable cost
