THIS IS NOT HUMAN FOOD GRADE which is white but the DARKER ANIMAL FEED GRADE
Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized remains of Diatoms (a type of algae) which are then ground into a fine powder. The way it works in simple terms is as follows. The powder is very absorbent and because under a microscope it can be seen to have extremely sharp edges which means it scratches the waxy protection on Red mites, fleas, lice, worms and many other pests. Once scratched it absorbs all the moisture from the pest which shrivels and dies.
With DE you can be sure you are using a totally safe product that has no detrimental effects on animal produce. It contains less than 1% percent of Crystal & Silica. Some of the uses for Diatomaceous Earth include; household pets, gardens, flower beds, field crops, grain storage, and livestock feeding. Diatomaceous Earth is Mother Nature’s product with no harm to the environment, pets or to people. Diatomaceous Earth is not an earth but powdered diatoms (a type of algae).
Diatomaceous Earth kills pests by physical action, not chemical, by puncturing the insect’s exoskeleton and absorbing its body fluids, thus posing no harm to warm-blooded life. Moreover, on any surface, these natural pesticide products have a remarkable repellency factor. As long as it is present, insects tend to stay away, making a serious infestation unlikely. Also, the more it is used, the more an environment is created that tends to make insects feel unwelcome.
Diatomaceous Earth is great for your pets too, when lightly rubbed into their coats it is effective against fleas, ticks, lice and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and their bedding and houses. It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have.
When using as a de-wormer mix the Diatomaceous Earth into your pets food. Mix well with dry and wet food.
