Flies & Insects

Flies, midges and other insects can be a nuisance for both farmers and their livestock, particularly in warmer weather. 

Larvicides, such as Maggots, target the fly larvae (maggots) to prevent them from developing into flies.  These granular larvicides are safe to use, have a long lasting effect and can be easily applied by scattering or dissolving and spraying or pouring.  They are a popular choice for use in livestock areas, including poultry houses, dairy units, pig breeding areas, sheep units and horse stables.

Other products for controlling flies and midges include insecticide, fly paper, fly traps and fast acting fly killer.

Red Mites

Red mites are small parasites that can have a large effect upon the health of your chickens. The small mites feed on all parts of the birds, including blood, skin and feathers.   Red mites feed on poultry at night and  live within tiny spaces of the chicken house.

Smite Red Mite Organic Powder is a safe, odourless powder that kills mites, lice and other crawling insects.  It is a completely natural product with no chemicals or pesticides.  The active ingredient of Smite is Diatomaceous Earth; an organic mineral product made up of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of algae.  Smite Red Mite Powder can be sprinkled throughout the hen house and on the birds. Alternatively, Smite powder can be mixed with water to form a 'slurry' which can then be painted onto surfaces. As the product dries again, it once again becomes effective and kills red  mite as they crawl through it.

Rats, Mice & Other Vermin

To control rats, mice, squirrels and other vermin, choose from our range of spring traps, mouse traps, snares, mole scissor traps, rat traps, snap traps.

The Quill Vermin Trap Box, designed to hold a Mark 4 Fenn Trap, is a safe and effective way to catch rats, squirrels, stoats and weasels. The new design is a cost effective and longer lasting alternative to traditional wooden trap boxes. Importantly, the unique side-loading design makes setting the spring trap easier and safer.  The green coloured trap can be surrounded by soil and undergrowth to camouflage with its surroundings.

If you prefer a more humane method of pest control, choose from our British Made live  catch traps and larsen traps.  A range of sizes are available, including live traps for squirrels, mink, rabbits, foxes and magpies.

An alternative to trapping is the use of rodenticides, such as rat baits and mouse and rat poison. Sapphire grain or paste is an extremely popular and effective choice for controlling a rat problem.  It kills rodents after a single feed and there is no chance of resistance being build against it. For mice we would recomend Black Pearl a single feed poison based on Alphachloralose and extremely effective.

Rodenticides are often used in conjunction with bait boxes or hoppers, in order to keep the poisons out of reach of non target species.  Trap boxes, such as the Quill Vermin Trap Box can also work well as bait boxes.
