Red Mite Control with Resistance to Moisture

23 October 2012

UK - There are many red mite control products on the market, however, FOSSILSHIELD is a non-toxic diatomaceous earth and is unique in its ability to accept an electrostatic charge due to its high resistance to moisture, according to PCS Poultry.

As the mites attempt to remove FOSSILSHIELD from their skin, the powder begins to scratch away their waxy outer layer, exposing the fatty tissue underneath. The powder then dries this tissue, killing the insect naturally.

The FOSSIL SHIELD + PCS Poultry professional on-site service provides an electrostatic charge application, allowing 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.

There is no active ingredient in FOSSILSHIELD for the mite to build up a resistance and can be used turnaround after turnaround.
