One of the first signs of unhealthy poultry is an insect infestation. A mite infestation, for example, can create severe problems with poultry including: reduced egg production, wattles, and sometimes death. Mites are nocturnal and suck the blood of the animal while they sleep. They then hide in the the cracks and crevices of the chicken coup during the day. To avoid complications, it’s important to treat mites immediately. It’s typically most effective to treat the coup rather than the bird. However, very often those who raise chickens will turn to a chemical solution to kill the insects. Chemicals typically work by destroying the insect’s nervous system which can also potentially harm the bird. Most chicken owners don’t want to risk poisoning their chickens and should look for natural alternatives. That’s why we have created a simple, easy to use solution completely free of toxins and chemical additives.
Kill mites on chickens without chemicals:
- 1. Dust Chickens With DEsect LP Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide
- 2. Dust coup repeatedly until insects are gone
- 3. Continue treatment to prevent insects from infesting the bird and coup

How does DEsect LP Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide work?
DEsect LP Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide does not rely on chemicals to kill mites. If you view DEsect LP Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide under the microscope you will find a microscopic, razor-sharp sponge. Because of this structure, DEsect LP Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide abrades and dehydrates the mite’s exoskeleton. The result is fatal to insects but harmless to animals and their owners.
