Diatomaceous Earth

Spring and Summer brings beautiful flowers, sun filled days and unfortunately it also brings parasites.  Fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, lice.....YUK!!!!!  Diatomaceous Earth is one my of favorite products!  It can be used safely as a duster on plants, around the house to kill ants, and on your pets as well.  You can really get your bang for your buck with this product!

I have used D-Earth in and around the sleeping areas for my pets as well as giving it to them internally.  The results were amazing!  We live in a heavily wooded area with plenty of wildlife so fighting fleas, ticks and mosquitoes is a constant battle!  I am not one for a lot of chemicals due to the affect that it has on the environment, so this product really peaked my interest. ***Before you change ANYTHING in your pet's healthcare regime, please consult with your vet first.****  As I began to do more research about the product, I was impressed even more.  Every season I would use a hose end administered yard insect kill product to control the intruders.  It would work fine until there was a heavy rain, with D-Earth it stays put!  I experimented with a couple of things and this is what I found worked best for treating the yard.  I would cut the grass first, then water it.  Next I would put the product in my spreader while using a mask and take a few passes thru the lawn.  Certain areas like the under sides of my flowers my need another application from time to time, but not often.  

The product can also be added to your pet's drinking water or added to their food(with a vet's supervision)  it controls fleas, ticks, and acts as a natural de-wormer including heart worms.  The popularity of this product has increased to the point that it can now be found in some local hardware stores.  I will have to caution you that this product works great a killing insects, however, it does NOT discriminate between the good ones, and the bad ones you have to do your homework and use it with care!

Have a Great Summer!

I also oppose insect killing by using pesticides or insecticides as it contains very harmful chemical product but if it attacks my pet then I have to take an effective act to keep it safe. If anyone can inform about any better alternate then it's welcome. Thanks for pointing out the fact.

You are so welcome! Since I began working in the animal care field I had began to develop certain reactions to the chemicals that we were using on pets. I began to look into alternatives. If they were affecting me, I knew that they had to be affecting the pets as well! Thanks for your comment!

Diatomaceous earth also known as D.E., diatomite, or kieselgur/kieselguhr, is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. It has a particle size ranging from less than 3 micrometre to more than 1 millimeter, but typically 10 to 200 micrometres.

Diatomite is used as an insecticide, due to its abrasive and physico-sorptive properties.The fine powder absorbs lipids from the waxy outer layer of insects' exoskeletons, causing them to dehydrate.. I was looking for this exact and particular information for a long time. Thanks. !!

So true of you while pointing out the warmth and depth of the issue. Diatomaceous Earth is awesome product for home. The subject matter was a sensitive one which bounds one to have a thought on it for a while.

Soraa’s Shuji Nakamura is the man behind this technology, which is interesting because he was a solid state lighting pioneer at Nichia… which is the only major manufacturer that’s sticking with sapphire substrates.
