Four Million Birds a Year Now Treated with Red Mite Control

UK - The unique FossilShield + PCS professional on-site electrostatic application is now used on farms with a combined capacity for four million birds nationwide. The treatment is predominantly applied to free-range and breeder farms on repeat turnaround cycles of 11 to 13 months.

FOSSILSHIELD is a non-toxic diatomaceous powder. As the mite 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.
,br> The application 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.

Seventy per cent of customers have used the treatment for their last three flocks or more. Ninety-five per cent new customer return rate.

FOSSIL SHIELD + PCS = the solution to your red mite problem.
