Appletons Poultry Safeguard Concentrate



Appletons Poultry Safeguard Concentrate

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.

The ultimate solution to a mite-free hen house. No other cleaner does the job better!

Bad mite infestation

Worked a treat. Those mites don’t like Appletons at all.
Gave them a good drenching and they are all but gone.
It’s good stuff. Thanks for a product that works.🙂

Hopefully my chickens will not get red mites. It is easy to apply and was super easy to purchase.
