Koop M8 Oil – Wood Preservative for your coop – 1lt Refill Pack


Categories: , ,


Just the job if you already have the starter unit spray pack. Just refill and away you go.

When the oil is in contact with rubber seals for a prolonged period of time, the seals on low quality spray units loose their shape and then leak.  Hence this is why we have sourced some chemically resistant heavy duty bottles with hardened Viton seals. These will last a lifetime and I have people wanting to buy the spray bottles for household cleaners they are so good!

Koop M8 Oil is Recycled Canola/Rapeseed oil.

It is sourced from recycling ‘chip shop used’ oil, which is then cleaned/processed through a trans-esterification cycle producing Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (Fame) or Biodiesel.

We use this oil as a wood preservative for our wood coops.

The oil has a NIL HSNO Human Hazards rating in NZ which is awesome!, but do not throw left over oil into waterways as any oils are not great for aquatic life.

It has not been extensively tested on poultry/eggs for residues or long term effects in NZ or with use overseas. In fact, no oils for use against red mites have undergone testing due to the costs of running the trials & scientific analysis being prohibitive. Hence we are selling as a wood preservative vs a specific Red Mite Treatment.

It is great to apply around nestboxes and perch rails. Do this when the chooks are out for the day ideally. We have added some essential oils for fragrance to the oil. Cloves and Eucalyptus oil are added. Use of the oil gives the wood a good sticky base for the Koop M8 powder to be applied over the top. The powder, if applied to bare wood, soon falls off or wears off with the chickens movements. If the oil is applied first and then the powder, it makes are great residual product that stays in place and doesn’t wear off around the sides and under the perches which is where the mites like to run.

We love that this oil is recycled as well so we are helping reduce waste in the environment.

The two products work very well together and we strongly advise to use both if your are worried about keeping your powder in place so it can work as a preventative to inhibit the build up of Red Mite infestations.

Available in 1lt Chemically Resistant Viton seals spray bottle
