Flyte so Fancy Diatomaceous Earth Powder (DE), is a 100% natural powder. Re-sealable tub available in 2kg or 5kg.
DE is a desiccant powder that can be sprinkled inside the hen house or on the birds, or on cat and dog bedding.
Diatomaceous Earth is very absorbent and is used as a drying agent in poultry and livestock bedding and housing areas, especially in moist areas where moulds, fungi, mites and crawling insects thrive.
As a desiccant, Diatomaceous Earth provides an effective solution to dampness and moisture within the hen house which in itself provides habitats and breeding places for moulds and mites associated with chickens.
Use regularly to eliminate these habitats from your chicken coop. Sprinkle on the birds against irritation from mites or add to feed as part of a healthy intestinal regime.
Diatomaceous Earth is a fine powder made of the fossilised remains of diatoms (a type of algae) which are found in river beds all over the world. It is a natural product and works at a microscopic level. This DE is classed as food-grade, is not heat-treated, and contains no chemicals or pesticides (beware of other DE that is calcinated - heat-treated - and only meant for use in filtration systems).
