Poultry Shield is a multipurpose cleaner, sanitiser and odour neutraliser, effective against bacteria, viruses,
fungus, mould, algae and biofilms. It works equally well with hard or soft water, is unaffected by temperature
fluctuation, and has a long storage life. Poultry Shield contains NO poison and can be safely used in organic
production. It is completely bio-degradable and environmentally friendly. To use, dilute 1 part Poultry Shield to
10 parts water for an instant kill. Poultry Shield can also be used at 1:20 for general disinfection of the poultry
house after mucking out. Simply dilute and spray the house and equipment liberally, Poultry Shield will kill mite
and their eggs over a period of 2 - 3 days. The birds can then be re-introduced back in to the house almost
immediately. Poultry Shield is 100% safe, so there is no need to withdraw eggs. *Please Note: Poultry Shield is
effective only on contact with the mite and eggs.

To make 1 litre of Poultry Shield Solution, mix 200ml of Poultry Shield Concentrate with 800ml Clean Water.
Directions for Use:
1: Remove any old bedding, removable equipment, litter and debris from the poultry house.
*The poultry house should be completely dry before the solution is applied. If the house is sprayed
when the walls are still wet, the solution will be diluted again - making it virtually ineffective.
2: Thoroughly spray the interior of your hen house from top to bottom with Poultry Shield solution
including all your nest boxes, perches and any other fittings (a garden hand pump sprayer or
knapsack sprayer is ideal for this so you can give the hard to reach places a good soak).
Pay particular attention to the roof joints and underneath your nest boxes and perches and
then leave for an hour to thoroughly soak. *Do not rely on just 'misting' the poultry house, as
it has to be thoroughly wetted with the solution so that the liquid can penetrate all the cracks
and crevices. This will ensure the removal of all the red mite eggs as well as the red mite.
3: Following the hours soak, wash/brush clean your hen house making sure that you thoroughly wash away
any debris. Repeat again within 7 days as a precaution against any missed areas or 'hot spots' (areas where
the solution has been unable to penetrate, and lice or mite eggs are still alive). If your poultry house has a
slated floor, it is advisable to take out the slats from the house, scrape off all the detritus and thoroughly
spray them. Repeat again before putting them back in the poultry house. *If you have a felt roof, ensure that
the edges are completely stuck down, as this is a great habitat for red mite. Poultry Shield will not be able to
clean between the felt and roof, as it simply cannot reach. If the felt has come away, the best advice would be
to strip the felt off completely and re-felt after treatment. Ideally, replace the felt roof with Onduline sheeting.
4: All the other equipment which had been removed before cleaning your hen house should be given a good wash
with Poultry Shield. This will ensure everything has been cleaned and sanitised. For ease if you have a large bucket,
you could fill this with Poultry Shield solution and leave to soak whilst you are cleaning the house. Then give them a
brush and a rinse before putting back into your clean house.
