Mighty Organic Bedding Powder can be used with all pets, poultry, horses & livestock as well as throughout domestic households to maintain an environment free from mites, fleas, lice, ants, moths, flies, cockroaches, carpet beetles and many other pests including slugs and snails. It can be sprinkled on animal bedding, in dust baths, nest boxes and throughout animal housing as well as on carpets and furnishings. Mighty Organic Bedding Powder can be applied directly on to animals skin, or mixed into their feed to aid in the prevention of internal parasites and promote general good health. Mighty Organic Bedding Powder is made from the crushed fossils of freshwater organisms and marine life called Diatoms (a type of algae). It is a natural desiccant, removing moisture and helping to maintain a dry, clean, odour-free environment. It will also prevent damp areas where mites, moulds and lice could thrive. Mighty Organic Bedding Powder is non-staining, pesticide-free and has many other uses including the storage and preservation of fruit and grain. This is a great value multi-purpose organic bedding powder which also comes with its own in-depth information and instructions for use leaflet.

How Does Mighty Organic Bedding Powder Work?
Diatoms have a hard shell made of non-crystalline silica, which does not decompose in the lakes, or sea where diatoms live. Thus, over long periods of time, large volumes of fossilised diatoms are exposed on the surface from dried out lakes. Once crushed to a fine powder and observed through a microscope, the particles resemble bits of broken glass - deadly to any insect but completely harmless to animals, fish, fowl or food. Most insects have a waxy outer shell covering their bodies. Mighty Organic Bedding Powder scratches through this shell causing the insect to dehydrate, leading to eventual death. Therefore, it controls insects by physical means rather than chemical, and thus has no chemical toxicity. *It can be expected that most insects will die from contact with Mighty Organic Bedding Powder within a few days.

Red Mite Control in Poultry
Mighty Organic Bedding Powder can control red mite in poultry houses when thoroughly applied to walls, floors, ceilings, perches, nest boxes etc. The most effective way to control red mite is to use the two pronged attack; firstly wash away the red mites' habitat with Poultry Shield and then use Mighty Organic Bedding Powder for residual red mite control.

Parasite Control in Livestock and Pets
Mighty Organic Bedding Powder has been used for at least two decades as a natural wormer for livestock and pets. For effective use, it must be fed for long enough to catch all the newly hatching eggs or cycling of the worms through the lungs and back to the stomach.

A minimum of 60 days is suggested at 2% dry weight of the feed ration.

Mighty Organic Bedding Powder can also be applied to livestock's coats as an insect repellent/contact insecticide. Both internal and external parasite control will result in improved health, appearance and behaviour, as well as assimilation of feed which leads to improved weight gain and lower feed costs. Mighty Organic Bedding Powder can also be used as an animal feed additive for cows, calves, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, ducks, dogs, cats, pigeons and other pets or farm animals.

Indoor and Outdoor Application

Sprinkle a light layer of Mighty Organic Bedding Powder in areas where pests frequent, including under cookers, sinks, cabinets, dustbins, windows and door frames and sills, entrance ways, sewer pipes and drains, and in cracks and crevices.

Carpet Beetles:
Thoroughly dust along skirting boards, carpet edges, under furniture, carpet and rugs and in closets and shelving.

Fleas:
Thoroughly dust carpets, pet bedding and sleeping areas, as well as cracks and skirting boards. Mighty Organic Bedding Powder can also be rubbed into your pets fur.

Flies:
Thoroughly dust areas where flies frequent (walls, straw bedding, livestock pens etc.)

Slugs and Snails:
To use, simply sprinkle around flowers and vegetable gardens. *Mighty Organic Bedding Powder is not harmful to earthworms since they are structurally different from insects.

Trees:
Sprinkle liberally on the ground and around tree trunks. Tree trunks can also be painted with a mixture of Mighty Organic Bedding Powder, water, linseed soap or a wetting agent. This will inhibit the migration of various fruit flies (maggot stage), worms beetles (grub stage).

Grain Storage:
Use at a rate of 7 lbs per ton of grain in barley, corn, wheat, oats, rice, rye, and mixtures of these grains. It is most effective when grain is treated directly after harvest by coating the outside surface of the grain. The rate of application for this is 3kg Mighty Organic Bedding Powder per ton of grain.
