Fossil Shield can be applied to any poultry farm.
The best results are acheived in free range, multi-tier and breeder systems.
Fossil Shield is a residual product. You should see very little red mite up to 40 weeks after treatment and past peak production.
The efficacy can depend on the shed type. A moden shed with sheet metal walls and roof compared to a 30 year old shed with wooden panels will experience different results. however 80 % of our customers do not require a second treatment throughout a flock cycle.
A Fossil Shield application is most effective when the entire shed is thoroughly clean, dry and empty prior to a flock placement.
We ask that the shed be dry, plastic nest covers taken off & laid upside down, egg belt covers upside down (if applicable) and feeder turn plates on slats. We also provide a preparation guide to all new customers outlining all aspects for the treatment.
We supply a follow on treatment for top ups and breakout protection with fossil shield farmkit. This, combined with a professional application, should provide protection throughout the flock cycle.
