SMITE Organic DE Powder - Red Mite Treatment

Diatomaceous Earth or better known simply as DE - Smite Organic is a 100% Fresh Water, Food Grade DE powder.

  • 100% natural organic product!
  • Safe to use anywhere you can think of where insects are an issue
  • No egg, meat, or food withholding periods.
  • EPA/HSNO Approved product.

HOW IT WORKS - Apply DE to all the internal corners, joins, perches & nest boxes - the mite will crawl through the dust to get to the hens at night. The powder damages the mites protective shell causing it to slowly dehydrate & die.

IS IT SAFE - This product is perfectly safe to use not just in animals housing, but can be used with all birds, cats, dogs you name it - for the control of lice, fleas etc in housing & bedding. The same goes for most crawling insects, ants & cockroaches, fleas & flies anywhere you can think of bed bugs, carpets, on your precious vegetable garden, etc. As with any powder do not breathe it in and use a mask.

WHAT IS DE - Diatomaceous Earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae that is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock thats easily crumbled into powder form. The powder has an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder & is very light due to its high porosity.

Ideal for use in:

  • Home or office for flea, fly, cockroach & ant control.
  • On your vegetables for aphid & caterpillar control it wont harm earth worms.
  • On the farm, wherever animals & pets are present, dog kennels, in chicken coops - great for residual mite control in poultry housing!
  • Poultry - RED MITE hide in the darkest nooks & crannies, crevasses, perches & nesting areas in your chooks housing - Coming out at night to suck the blood from your poultry.
  • Residual insect control that works & keeps on working for months after use.
