DeSect Livestock and Poultry is the organic way to prevent and kill the insects that are harming your livestock and animals- such as mites and parasites. This pesticide is easy to use and blends in with the environment of your animals. Sprinkle some in their coop or fur and let the product speak for itself!

What is it?

DEsect® Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide is produced from a special grade of fresh-water diatomaceous earth (DE) and is a highly effective insect control solution. DEsect physically abrades & absorbs the exterior protective waxy cuticle layer of the insect, resulting in rapid death by dehydration. (Insects cannot become immune to its action.) DEsect is made from a special DE ore deposit which kills insects faster than competing brands of DE, according to testing by an independent entomology laboratory.
