DIATOMACEOUS EARTH (300g)
DIATOMACEOUS EARTH is an ORGANIC way to control insects in your aviary and internal parasites in the digestive tract of your birds. DIATOM EARTH contains no chemicals so there is no risk to your birds, other pets or humans.
DIATOM EARTH is the fossilised remains of diatoms, a type of microscopic, hard-shelled algae. The shell particles of Diatom Earth are sharp enough to cut the outer layer of the insects and parasites that can reak havoc in an aviary, causing them to dehydrate and die as the DE absorbs the lipids from the waxy exoskeleton.
· Dust inside of nest boxes and birdroom floors to control ants, red mite and spiders
· Dust lightly on to bird feathers to kill mites and lice.
· Mixed into seed to control seed moths and other bugs.
Use gloves and mask.
