Pest control

Diatomaceous Earth works on pests by piercing their protective shell causing them to dry out. The main benefit of using Diatomaceous Earth over other treatments is that insects cannot build up a resistance to it as with chemicals. Diatomaceous Earth will not harm worms or beneficial microorganisms in the soil.

In the garden the DE should be applied with a dust applicator while wearing a dust mask. The best time to apply is after rain or in early morning.

In the home it can be used to control fleas and bed bugs.

For animals

Diatomaceous Earth is very useful for flea and tick control in cats and dogs.

Apply the DE lightly on your pet’s coat, as well as on bedding and carpeting. It can take three days for it to work so must be left on surfaces such as bedding or carpeting before removal.

Taken internally, DE can rid dogs of roundworms, whipworms, pinworms and hookworms – though it is less effective against tapeworms. It should be fed for at least a month in order to kill hatching eggs and worms moving in and out of the stomach.

Particularly good for chickens as it will kill mites and lice.  Sprinkle in areas where the chickens take dust baths and mix with feed.  Will kill internal parasites as well as adding a good source of calcium to their diet.
