Smite Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth Powder (DE Powder for short) is a unique all-natural product made entirely from fossilised algae called Diatoms. The powder looks and feels similar to chalk and is soft to the touch, but under a microscope actually consists of tiny glass-like particles. It's extremely effective against pests with exoskeletons (such as Spiders, Mites, Lice, Ticks, Bed Bugs, Cockroaches, Aphids e.t.c)

How Does Diatomaceous Earth Work

It works by effectively dehydrating a bugs exterior waxy shell and making its way inside to further dry out and kill their bodies. It’s fatal on contact to bugs but does no harm to mammals.

DE Powder is a natural, non-toxic product that can even be useful in feed to prevent worms (always follow label instructions) and can even be used on pets fur to prevent or kill fleas. DE is almost pure silica and is the second most abundant element in soils and in our ocean, so it has no harmful impact on the environment when manufactured or used.

How to use Diatomaceous Earth Powder

Check our blog for a full list of the benefits of DE and the many ways you can apply it but in short; Simply sprinkle it anywhere you think your poultry, pets or farm animals make come into contact with pests such as red mite and lice such as bedding, feed, pen flooring, nesting boxes, and the cracks of hutches or coops. You can even add it to poultry dust baths. Your birds will naturally do a great job of rubbing the powder into their feathers making their whole bodies a repellant 

It's as wonderfully simple as it is effective. Perfect to use over and over again as its not a chemical, pests will never grow immune to it!

An organic, naturally mined mineral product made up of fossilised remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. It contains no pesticides or chemicals and kills insect pests by breaking down the waxy exoskeleton and then absorbing lipids and body fluids, causing them to dry out and die. It is safe to use in high risk areas where animals and children are present and ingestion of the product by animals and birds has digestive benefits. Safe for use in food areas. For the control of ants, fleas, bedbugs, cockroaches, stored product insects, mites, book lice and silverfish.
