About this deal

Wash all bedding in hot water, taking care to keep contaminated bedding seperate from all other bedding / clothing etc. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations. As you look at the image (right) you will see that the fossil shell flour is tubular with tiny perforations or holes in the walls. Under normal conditions this predatory mite population will outgrow any spidermite population due to the increased amount the females lay eggs. DIATOMACEOUS EARTH: Diatomaceous earth is made up of tiny fossilized diatoms (plankton) that have accumulated over millennia in fresh water lakes.

This Organ-X diatomaceous earth (Desi Dust) in bulk sack form is a natural organic insect killer made from crushed diatoms.For use in the greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass - up to and including the day of harvest. Whilst we can no longer advertise this product as food grade due to a clamp down by trading standards (who don’t want any clays advertised this way), we know many people that love using it internally. Diatomaceous Earth is also used by many cosmetic manufacturers to make natural products including toothpastes, deodorants, face masks and scrubs. Simply use the puffer nozzle in the 100g bottle to add a light dusting of DE powder to the top of the wormery's contents. Scientists have hypothesized earth-eating as an adaptive behavior based on nutritional requirements, one that occurred and persisted on an evolutionary basis due to its survival benefits.

We advise wearing gloves and a dust mask when applying Diatomaceous Earth as in some cases it can be a skin irritant. The average human body (for example) holds approximately seven grams of silica, needing significantly more silica than even important minerals such as iron. Our Diatomaceous Earth is Food Grade obtained from the purest fresh water it is organic and eco-friendly. Diatomaceous Earth, other wise know as DE, is not just a natural fantastic way to control and deal with internal parasites and flies which is achieved by adding to food and or dusting your dog along with the bedding area and surrounding carpets.It is worth noting here that there have been claims Diatomaceous Earth powder can treat worms and internal parasites; however, there is no scientific evidence to back this up and so we advise administering a proper worming routine for your hens. When insects come into contact with DE their waxy coated shells are damaged by microscopic, razor-sharp edges. Removing these impurities can enhance digestion and nutrient uptake leading to a higher feeling of well-being. Use alongside Smite / Nettex Total mite kill Can be used in dustbaths, nest boxes, litter and bedding areas.

We only source our DE from the high quality mines here in the India, so that you can feel confident that you're getting the very best. Other ‘food grade’ DE may contain higher amounts of sediment and clay, making the fossil shell flour a grey/brown colour. The sharp points found on fossilised diatom exoskeletons create a safe and non-toxic strong abrasive that scrubs intestinal walls and cuts up any parasites present in the digestive tract. One of the benefits of diatomaceous earth for insect control is that the insects have no way to build up a resistance to it, which can’t be said for many chemical control insecticides. It is a naturally-occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine powder.Highly successful in clearing out infestations of various pests and particularly useful against flying bugs which are very hard to target with sprays.

Diatomaceous earth is 89% – 95% amorphous silica, it also contains 15 essential trace minerals including phosphorous, selenium, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron. Diatomaceous Earth is a fine powder made of the fossilised remains of diatoms (a type of algae) which are found in river beds all over the world. Feed DE over the course of 1 month to ensure the product has a chance to work through your dogs system. The shape of the diatoms is very important; they should be tubular with holes in the centre on the walls.

Other examples of the universe of products and uses which benefit from diatomite include dental fillings, seed coatings, roofing compounds, adhesives, sealants, matches, oil drilling compounds, specialty concretes, and paper. DE powder should be applied to the coop by spreading the powder in cracks, crevices and nest box areas where mites hide.
