Suitable for use in Organic Farming Systems: Red Mite Powder contains only pure and natural ingredients. Red Mite Powder was developed for use in intensive rearing, breeding and egg laying units and 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).
Contents: Our formulation uses only 100% natural ingredients known for their excellent properties to thoroughly rid poultry and other birds of all types of mite and lice. Its active ingredient is a synergised tropical plant extract mixed with a blend of herbal and essential oils, all of which are proven very effective for this purpose. Sterilizable maize is used as the carrier and unlike other carriers, it will not metabolise via cuts, abrasions, scabs, grazes or dry flaky skin areas and form granulomas.
Never use chemical based products in conjunction with our natural products as this could render ours useless.
