How does it work?

FOSSILSHIELD® is a unique silica based formulation derived from diatomaceous earth, providing a residual protective coarse layer on targeted surfaces.

As the red mite crawl through, FOSSILSHIELD® scratches the outer waxy shell, drying them out, controlling red mite populations in a physical way.

Depending on your treatment package, FOSSILSHIELD® can last from around 40 weeks of age to the end of flock cycle, with any residue washed off at the end of the flock cycle and can be applied with three techniques.
