Barrier Red Mite Powder and Barrier Red Mite Concentrate are effective repellent combinations to be applied to poultry as a proactive ‘0n bird’ deterrent to infestation or to rectify an existing problem.
The product comes in two application methods:
A powder - to dust on for a long lasting effect.
A liquid concentrate - for knapsack application at 1:50 dilution.
Suitable for use in Organic Farming Systems: Barrier Red Mite Powder contains only pure and natural ingredients. Barrier Red Mite Powder was developed for use in intensive farming systems, but is also suitable for use in organic farming systems, as it falls into the exempt category of products which use only plant oils as active ingredients, as listed in Annexe IIB (Pesticides) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2092/91 (as amended).
Directions for use - Powder application: Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
The powder can be dusted onto the birds or added to the dust bath.
Red mite is a nocturnal creature so it’s best to spray the birds before lights out.
Dim the lights as low as practically possible to avoid any undue agitation amongst the birds.
Don't forget that red mite can live away from the bird for up to 36 weeks.
Lightly dust Barrier Red Mite Powder over the birds. Dependant upon infestation, the powder can be applied again after 5/6 weeks.
Staying power: Barrier Red Mite Powder contains minute slow release granules that remain effective for up to six weeks - depending upon infestation and conditions.
