Smite Powder is an organic, naturally-mined, mineral product made up of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. Smite Powder contains no pesticides or chemicals and kills insect pests by breaking down the waxy exoskeleton and then absorbing lipids and body fluids, which causes them to dry out and die. It is safe to use in higher risk areas (such as where animals or children are present) and ingestion of the product by animals and birds during natural foraging has digestive benefits. Smite Powder is also safe for earthworms and has no detrimental effect on the natural ecosystem,

Kills Red Mite DEAD! Having paid a teenager to care for my hens, I came back from holiday to find 2 of my hens dead from red mite and the other 3 badly infested. I powdered the live birds liberally, and the whole of their coop. Two weeks later they were back to laying and are healthy again. EGB - Kent
Convenient and effective The 'puffer bottle' works well and gets the powder in the nooks and crannies where you want it. Past experience has proved to me that this powder, used regularly, is an effective way of dealing with the wretched mites that seem to reappear annually. R M Peberdy - Worcestershire
Best treatment we've found for red mite....and ant Tried loads of washes, sprays and chemicals, but this powder is by far the best natural long-lasting solution to red mite. Easily puffed around the henhouse, into corners etc. Has kept the mites at bay without having to treat the chucks. Also finding it useful to stop the ants at the back door! Viv K - Glos
Easy to use, no smell feels ok too. I bought this and treated my hens as they had scaley leg and I thought they might have mites too (did not see any) both birds covered in powder along withtheir bed/shavings. The hens seemed quite happy withthe powder on and did not seem worried about being powdery for a while. No smell & laying now. C Sinclair - Hull, E Yorks
Ease of use Found the Smite powder easy to use and hoping will keep the red mite away in the future. Marian - U.K.
