Using the Red Mite Puffer Bottle
Red Mite Powder (Diatomaceous Earth) is a 100% natural product, prepared from the fossilised remains of ancient shell creatures, so is totally inert and safe to humans and animals. This Powder works mechanically rather than chemically, so no immunity can be built up. As the mites crawl through this dust, the microscopically sharp shards that this product is made from scratches the mite's waxy shell, thus causing them to slowly dehydrate and die.-Apply liberally on each bird, make sure to coat under the wings
-Spray on the ground around the entrance to their nest box and busy areas.
-This powder is 100% safe for your birds, both externally and internally (it actually helps with digestibility!) so don't be afraid to cover everything
-We advise wearing gloves and a dust mask when applying Diatomaceous Earth, as in some cases it can be a skin irritant.
