THE ULTIMATE “ORGANIC” Insect control, Diatomaceous Earth (better known simply as DE) – Smite Organic is a 100% Fresh Water, Food Grade 100% natural organic product!
Safe to use anywhere you can think of where insects are an issue, with no egg, meat or food withholding periods.
Ideal for use in your poultry houses, where Red Mite hide in the darkest nooks & crannies, crevasses, perches & nesting areas
Red Mites come out at night to feed on the blood from your poultry, spreading disease as they go.
Also useful for homes or offices for flea, fly, cockroach & ant control, on your vegetables for aphid & caterpillar control and on the farm, wherever animals & pets are present, such as dog kennels. Smite won’t harm earth worms in your garden.
HOW IT WORKS
After applying DE to all the internal corners, joins, perches & nest boxes, the mite will crawl through the dust to get to the hens at night. The powder damages the mite’s protective shell causing it to slowly dehydrate & die. It is similar but more effective than talcum.
IS IT SAFE? YES!
This product is perfectly safe to use not just in animals housing, but can be used with all birds, cats, dogs you name it – for the control of lice, fleas etc in housing & bedding. The same goes for most crawling insects, ants & cockroaches – Flea’s & flies – anywhere you can think of – Bed bugs, carpets, on your precious vegetable garden the list just goes on and on…
WHAT IS DE?
DE stands for Diatomaceous Earth. DE consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae that is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that’s easily crumbled into powder form. The powder has an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder & is very light due to its high porosity.
Smite is an EPA/HSNO Approved product.
