Mite Powder
« on: December 31, 2007, 11:23 »
I got hold of a brilliant treatment for red mites a couple of years ago called 'EcoMite Powder' (I think  :oops: ) from the internet.  Can't track it down now - has anyone else heard of it?  If so, do you know where I can get it from?

I have tried various ones and found them all useless. The only thing that really works is POULTRY SHIELD. Buy a bottle and dilute it down 5:1. I keep a mister bottle of it made up by both hen houses and spray it over the perching bars etc when cleaning  out - it keeps red mite at bay beautifully. When i have cleaned out i use gold  or delete louse powder, sprinkled over the base of the hen houses as a sanitiser.

Hi Ecomite  I think is the same as Diatom (diatomaceous earth) a silica powder which kills the mite. I use one called "Mitex" same thing again
I think this is what you are used too though?

Diatom is very good as a preventative (I use it).  But if there is an active infestation bigger guns are needed  :!:

Yes, Foxy, that's the one!  Many thanks.  Despite many google searches, I could never seem to find it.
