Organic Mite and Louse Powder 350g
Smite Organic Powder is an organic, naturally-mined, mineral product made up of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. When crushed to a fine powder it feels similar to chalk powder to the touch, but when viewed under a microscope the fine particles resemble shards of broken glass! It is this ‘broken glass’ effect which is deadly to any insect, but harmless to animals, fish, fowl, food and humans.
Insects, mites, lice, fleas and spiders etc have a waxy outer shell (exoskeleton) covering their bodies Smite Powder kills insect pests by breaking down the waxy exoskeleton and then absorbing lipids and body fluids, which causes them to dry out and die. Because the product is harmless to animals, plants and humans it is safe to use in higher risk areas (such as where animals, children or food are present) and ingestion of the product by animals and birds during natural foraging even has digestive benefits!
Smite Powder is also safe for earthworms and has no detrimental effect on the natural ecosystem.
