Organic Diatomaceous Earth Powder

Get Rid Of Fleas, Naturally!

Eliminate fleas safely and effectively with Diatomaceous Earth Flea Dust.

Toss the chemicals, sprays and drops and use Flea Dust with it's convenient sprinkle top. It's safe for your dog (or cat) and safe for the environment.

Diatomaceous earth powder contains microscopic, razor-sharp edges that dehydrate bugs from the inside out. The sharp edges also shred the insects insides as well as their exoskeletons. Since the powder has a mechanical action, you don't have to worry about fleas becoming resistant to it, like so many chemical flea products.

Directions

Sprinkle on your pets bedding, as well as on carpets, furniture and anywhere else your pet hangs out. Leave dust down for about 24 hours, then vacuum. You can also use Flea powder directly on your pet: just sprinkle lightly all over, pulling back the fur so you get the Flea powder on the skin. Avoid getting dust in eyes, nose and mouth.

Ingredients: Human Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, from Australia.

Safe for dogs and cats.

How Diatomaceous Earth Rolls up the Welcome Mat for Fleas, Bed Bugs, Dust Mites, Lice, Roaches, Ants and More


Diatomaceous earth is mined from the fossilized remains of single-celled diatoms

Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a fine, white powder that’s mined from the very tiny fossilized shells of microscopic water-dwelling organisms known as diatoms.

Essential parts of the earth’s ecology, diatoms are single-celled plants that have sustained marine life since prehistoric days. They exist today around the world in salt and fresh waters, and their deposits can be found underwater and in ancient dried up lakes. 

So what exactly is in DE?

Because diatoms use silica from their sandy environment, the powder from their fossilized shells consists of about:

  • 33 percent silicon (or silicon dioxide)
  • 19 percent calcium
  • 5 percent sodium
  • 3 percent magnesium
  • 2 percent iron
  • Plus other trace minerals like boron, manganese, and copper

Under a microscope, the fine white powder has very sharp edges, which makes it unwelcoming to pests, but not you or your pet.

Diatomaceous Earth is a cheap way to control external and internal parasites in your dog.

It’s a non-toxic, safe substance made up from crushed fossils of freshwater organisms and marine life. Crushed to a fine powder and observed through a microscope, the particles resemble bits of broken glass.

Diatomacous Earth is deadly to any insect yet completely harmless to animals. Diatomaceous Earth’s mode of action for insect and parasite control is strictly mechanical. The microscopically sharp edges contact the insect or parasite, and pierce their protective coating, so they soon dehydrate and die. The larvae is affected in the same way.

BENEFITS FOR YOUR PETS

Fleas are blood-sucking parasites that live outside, in our homes, and on our pets. The good thing, though, is that fleas hate diatomaceous earth. Because it's natural and safe, it is the perfect option to treat your pets for fleas.

DE is also a  natural alternative for worming your pets. It improves their health as well in the same way it does for humans.

The smells that come from the litter box are not the nicest of scents to have wafting around the house. Luckily, you can also get rid of the kitty litter smell by adding diatomaceous earth to the litter box. DE will will absorb moisture in the box and eliminate the smell; it will also repel any worms, larvae, or parasites in the litter box.


Internal parasites can be controlled by giving Diatomaceous Earth internally. It is very important to note that it must be food grade – the earth used in gardens and pool filters can damage your dog.

Diatomaceous Earth can eliminate roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, and hookworms within seven days of being fed daily.

To be most effective, Diatomaceous Earth should be fed for at least 30 days, to catch all newly hatching eggs or the cycling of the worms through the lungs and back to the stomach.

Another use for Diatomaceous Earth is the control of external parasites and flies. This is achieved by dusting your dog with Diatomacous Earth, along with his bedding area and surrounding carpeted areas.

~Other Uses
Diatomaceous Earth has also been reported in scientific literature to absorb methyl mercury, e-coli, endotoxins, viruses, organophosphate pesticide residues, drug resides, and protein, perhaps even the proteinaceous toxins produced by some intestinal infections. Given this, Diatomaceous Earth is very useful as a detox solution, digestive aid and colon cleanser.

PEST CONTROL BENEFITS

Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a natural pest control that is great to use around your home because it's natural making it the perfect option to treat your house for many types of insects that invade. Some of the pests DE can help control are ants, carpet beetles, bed bugs, weevils, cockroaches and any crawling insects that can cause problems.

BENEFITS IN THE GARDEN

Diatomaceous Earth is tiny plant fossils which nick the bodies of insects and absorb the waxy moisture that their bodies are made of inevitably causing them to dehydrate. Due to the methodology of this organic insecticide pests can never become immune to its effects. Some of the garden pests DE is effective against are:

Aphids, Mites,Thrips, Ants, Slugs,Snails, Queensland Fruit Flies, Cucumber Beetles and many others.

Rodents like rats, moles, mice, and rabbits often do great damage to your garden, but if your sentiments don’t allow trapping them or eliminating them, one option is to discourage their visits. They are known to have an aversion to citrus and peppermint smells, so you can use small containers of diatomaceous earth with a few drops of the essential oil of lemon or peppermint as deterrents. This highly porous substance is better than cotton balls in both absorbing the oil and retaining the smell for longer periods.

Diatomaceous earth is often used as a medium for growing plants, usually in conjunction with other substances. Although it doesn’t have much to offer by way of nutrition, it contains less than 0.1% crystalline silica and provides nutrients to the soil such as magnesium; calcium; sodium; phosphorous; potassium; and selenium. It also has the capacity to hold fertilizers and then release it to the roots. That, as well as the porosity, makes it a good growing medium for hydroponic containers and Bonsai culture. Mix it with potting soil to increase drainage and air circulation in the root zone.   Whether it is industrial farming or small scale gardening our DE offers cultivators many advantages.

BENEFITS IN THE HOME

One of the great strengths of Diatomaceous Earth is its absorbent, porous structure. The porous structure of DE allows it to absorb unwanted odors. By simply placing a small, open container of diatomaceous earth in the vicinity of a bad smell, you can both deodorize and prevent the smell from returning. This is useful for carpets, cupboards, rubbish bins, shoes and pet smells. Adding a few drops of essential oil will add a pleasant scent as well.

Because DE can absorb up to twice its weight, this feature makes it an ideal stain remover. Liquid stains like oil, grease, or soda are often a bigger problem than a paper towel. Diatomaceous earth uses its porous diatoms to soak up messy spills without a hitch.

Ants are the most common insect to contend with in the home. Dust likely ant entryways to ensure ants are exposure to the DE. Bed bugs are the plague in the bug world, just using diatomaceous earth alone will not get rid of them. It’s best to use a combination of intense cleaning, de-cluttering, and DE application.

You can add DE to grains, legumes, beans, rice, corn and other foods to prevent clumping, germinating, or molding.  It also works as a natural pesticide to protect against beetles.
