Smite Powder is a safe and naturally-mined mineral product, made up of fossilized remains of diatoms. Instead of containing chemicals and pesticides, this product kills pests by causing them to dry out and die. It is safe to use in animal housing, and if ingested by animals or birds it can even have digestive benefits.
Smite Powder is safe for earthworms and will have no detrimental effect on the natural ecosystem, but it will help with the control of ants, fleas, bedbugs, cockroaches, mites, book lice and silverfish.
Smite can be applied directly to areas with red mite infestation, or it can be mixed with water and sprayed onto the areas. It can also be applied directly to small animals, dogs, cats and poultry, to control fleas and mites. Alternatively, try adding to your hen’s dustbath to get it worked into its feathers well.
