Diatomaceous Earth, Natural Pesticide

Diatomaceous Earth, Kieselguhr, also known as Fossil Shell Flour is natures Non Toxic Pesticide, this product and the knowledge of its benefits has been around for hundreds of years it was commercially available and manufactured in North America as early as the 1800’s. Yet there are so few that know about it. Big chain pet food stores do not carry it, I’ve looked. Some smaller family organic minded pet food stores and health food stores do.

So what is it, what does it do, and how?

Diatomaceous Earth is made up or ground fossilized skeletons of siliceous marine and fresh water organisms, particularly diatoms and other algae.

The tiny particles that make up this product are extremely sharp and hard and adhere readily to the hairs on insects causing lacerations to their waxy outer layer causing them to dehydrate rapidly and die. It is Non Toxic to humans and our pets although it is strongly recommended not to breath the dust. This product eliminates fleas with one application, also efficient in controlling bed bugs, ants, ticks, cockroaches, earwigs, silverfish, crickets, millipedes, and centipedes and many more. Food Grade Diatomaceous earth also controls worms in our pets like ringworm, and hookworm.

It is recommended that you use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth on your pets there are other grades of this product that are not as clean and toxin free some grades add toxins so be sure to purchase food grade. If it does not say it is food grade on the label it is NOT food grade as most that are sold in garden centers and hardware stores.

  2. *Nice post. I learn something far more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content material from other writers and practice a bit something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content material on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Can I just say what a aid to seek out someone who genuinely knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You certainly know the way to carry a difficulty to mild and make it critical. More people require to read this and perceive this aspect with the story. I cant imagine youre not much more fashionable because you positively have the gift.

  4. Ringworm patches form in a circular shape. The patch has clear defined red edges and a center of skin color. The name worm is misleading because no worm has anything to do with this disease. The fungus finds the groin area moist and warm and that is ideal for it to multiply. You can get the infection by touching somebody else’s ringworm, sharing towels, etc. animals also spread this disease. If you touch an animal suffering from ringworm and then scratch your groin area the fungus will infect you.^
