FOSSILSHIELD: Poultry Free from Red Mite Misery29 November 2011
UK - FOSSILSHIELD is a non-toxic natural diatomaceous earth derived from fossilised plankton.
When insects come into contact with FOSSILSHIELD, the powder damages the skin and absorbs the fats, drying and killing the insect naturally.
FOSSILSHIELD is unique in its ability to accept an electrostatic charge due to its high resistance to moisture.
The electrostatic charge allows the powder to grip and wrap around different surfaces and materials, vertical or horizontal, and provides an easier treatment solution to areas that are awkward to reach by hand.
With a 95 per cent customer return rate PCS Poultry Services provide the application of the powder on-site offering long-term protection typically up to 50 weeks of age, before any signs of small infestation may appear.
This allows a robust, long-term solution to the red mite problem without the need for a pesticide or the risk of insect resistance to chemicals.
Happy, productive poultry need freedom from the misery of red mite.
