How to Use Pest Pistol®.
Unscrew red lid. Remove clear tube, red nozzle and instructions. Insert clear tube into red screw lid. Attach red nozzle to end of clear tube. Using the black scoop provided with your Diatomaceous Earth, fill the clear bellows base. Screw red cap on. That’s it. Simple.
After filling with Diatomaceous Earth, tip upside down and squeeze – gently. We found it works best to use both hands to squeeze. Can also be used right side up without the applicator tip to for wide coverage in the run, nesting boxes, in the eves of the coop. If it get’s clogged: tap the bellows on a hard surface to break the clog free.
For Direct Application to Chickens.
It’s likely a good idea to have some help with this – another set of arms/hands will make this a smooth situation. While holding your chicken gently squeeze the Pest Pistol® allowing a gentle dusting of the under portion of your flocks wings. Get a good blast to her toosh (or his rump) followed by another squeeze to the neck and breast regions. Use caution to avoid the Diatomaceous Earth in eyes, nostrils or beak.
Set her down and move on to the next bird. So easy!
Why Use Pest Pistol®.
Pest Pistol® is a powder applicator that works wonders for dusting your chicken coop and all the surrounding areas – the nesting boxes, roosts, door and windows, you name it. If there’s a crack or a crevice, you can be certain bugs are living in there and bugging your birds and you’ll want to use the Pest Pistol® to administer Diatomaceous Earth – get those nasty bugs out of your coop. It’s a handy tool for small spaces and large applications as well. Use in the garden, garage, indoors and out.
Your Pest Pistol® is made entirely of plastic so it will not rust! It’s also made in the USA – another plus. And, all the components fit nicely inside the bellows for storage.
