Long Term Solution to Your Red Mite Problem

26 April 2013

UK - The unique FOSSIL SHIELD + PCS professional on-site electrostatic application offers a long term solution with 85 per cent of customers not requiring any repeat treatment until the next flock.

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.

The application allows the powder to grip and wrap around different surfaces & materials, vertical or horizontal, and provides an easier treatment solution to areas that are awkward to reach by hand.
