Silicon is an element, commonly found in nature. Biofarmab’s Kiselgur Höns is comprised of an extra dry silicon dioxide (SiO2). The silicon used is approved as a supplement for food and feed.
Silicon’s effect on lice and mites is not completely analyzed but it has been established that silicon dioxide will attach itself on the insects’ exterior, where it binds all moisture and hence causes the insect to die of dehydration.
The silicon should be mixed in the sand bath of the birds and can also be applied on the nest.
If an infestation is ascertained, all surfaces that the birds come into contact with, should be applied with silicon, including walls, ceiling and floor.
Leave the silicon for 2 weeks before cleaning. If needed, apply again.
