Red Mite Powder (Diatomaceous Earth) is a 100% natural product, prepared from the fossilised remains of ancient shell creatures so is totally inert and safe to humans and animals.

It is used on animals to protect against external parasites (lice, fleas, mites), internal parasites (worms), and for general good health.

It also increases digestibility of the feed when added at 1-2% so could also save you money on feed. Furthermore, it can be used as a mineral supplement for all animals and birds.

Red Mite Powder works mechanically rather than chemically, so no immunity can be built up. As the mites crawl through this dust the microscopically sharp shards that this product is made from scratches the mite's waxy shell, thus causing them to slowly dehydrate and die.

How do I use this?

When adding to feed - Red Mite Powder can be added to your chickens feed at roughly 2-5%,

When applying directly to your Hens - This can be applied liberally, using a 'Puffer Bottle' make sure to coat under the wings and in their nest box.


We advise wearing gloves and a dust mask when applying DE as in some cases it can be a skin irritant.

I bought this to deal with some silver fish that had started to appear in the bathroom. Perhaps it's too early to judge its success but certainly I haven't seen any of the creatures since applying this product. The design of the container makes it easy to use and the price seems sensible.
