Buck Mountain Parasite Dust is a natural, holistic product that is effective on fleas, ticks, mites, bed bugs, spiders, beetles, ants and other insects. It can be used on animals, in gardens and homes/buildings.
Ingredients: Organic Neem, Organic Yarrow, Diatom Flour
How to Apply: Sprinkle the dust from head to tail along the spine and brush against the hair to bring the dust into contact with the skin. A little goes a long way. One teaspoon is plenty for a dog and more than enough for a cat. If you see the dust when it's brushed in, your are using too much. This should be done under dry conditions in a ventilated area so as not to inhale a cloud of dust. Keep out of eyes, nose and mouth. One to two ounces is enough to dust a large herbivore (e.g. a horse).
It lasts a very long time unless washed away. In dryer climates, treatment twice a year may be enough.
The combination of these processed herbs is a very effective external parasite dust which also presents disinfectant and healing properties to lesions and other irritations secondary to infestation:
- Neem contains a chemical, azadirachtin, an active insecticide, repellent and potent-antifeedant and ecdysis inhibitory compound.
- Neem has also found broad use as a wound healing agent and has reported antimicrobial properties.
- Yarrow is a repellent to many parasites.
- Diatom flour desiccates many insects.
The dust rids mammals of parasites and a teaspoon or two on your window sash or sill eliminates flies, beetles and other bugs in home or office very effectively. It is safe for use in your garden as well.
Even engorged ticks have disappeared by the next day post dusting. The ingredients are nonmutagenic and nontoxic to mammals, fish and birds.
