From 1st September Diatom powder will be replaced with a New Formula Diatom to comply with new regulations. Details of how this will affect you can be found in our recent blog articlediatom powder and new regulations
If you are happy to continue with a basic Diatomaceous Earth Product, identical to Diatom but with no mention of any mite killing properties we recomend Smite Powder
Diatomaceous Earth is an effective control against many mite and lice problems associated with poultry including red mite.
Sprinkle Diatom powder on the floor of the house at a the rate of 50g per square meter.
It can also be added to the bottom of nest boxes and the hens favourite dust bath. Used in this manor the chickens will self medicate and reduce the need to handle them. Alternatively, diatom powder can be applied directly to the bird using the 450g diatom puffer pack.
Diatom powder (Diatomaceous Earth) has the effect on mites of walking across shards of glass. Their outer waxy coating soon becomes damaged and they die from dehydration. Because it is an inert mineral there is no egg withdrawal or chemical residue to consider although we recommend you wear gloves when handling diatom powder.
If you are dealing with an infestation of Red Mite we recommend you use poultry shield as an initial control followed by diatom powder (Diatomaceous Earth)

How I wish I had discovered this before. This does work. It grazes the surface of insects and dehydrates them, GOOD. It is best to use it after the hut has been well cleaned, work it into the corners etc.Absolutely safe in all locations, and on birds and animals. Safe around the kiddies too. Smells sweet. Excellent,P&P; and quick delivery. (04/07/2012) Susie - caithness
