D-Earth Food Grade 5#-10# & 50# Bags

Mined from the purest of deposits from prehistoric freshwater lake beds, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth consists of finely milled silica shells of ancient, microscopic freshwater plants called diatoms. Of 600 deposits in the U.S., only four rates in purity by FDA standards to label as "Food Grade." We do not ship internationally.

Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is a mainstay for organic garden pest control on farms. DE is used heavily by organic farms partly because of its organic nature. Still, non-organic growers also use DE for pest control because DE (Fossil Shell Flour) is so effective, and garden insects never become immune. DE kills bugs physically, not chemically.

Food Grade DE is not only nonchemical - our DE is an OMRI-listed organic product. Note: Perma-Guard pure food grade Diatomaceous Earth packaged in a plastic bag.

  • 10 Pounds Net Weight. This package does not have the EPA label--it is just pure food grade diatomaceous earth. Packed into a Box for Shipping. NOT FOR SALE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS-PLEASE ORDER THE EPA LABELED 5 OR 50 LB. BAG (Both Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth and Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth are 100% Organic.
  • The Crawling Insect Control is Perma Guard's DE with the approved EPA label for killing insects.)
Use D-Earth for Ear mites in all animals; hookworms and other internal parasites can be treated by sprinkling DE on a dog's food.
  • For a large dog, use one tablespoon of DE daily for ninety days, then maintain the dose every three days for life. Use half the amount for small dogs.
  • Sprinkle DE anywhere you think may harbor fleas and vacuum after two days.
  • DE can also be combed through your dog's coat for topical flea control.
  • Internal parasites can be controlled by giving Diatomaceous Earth internally. It is very important to note that it must be food grade (like ours), 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.
  • Food-grade DE is not a toxic agent; it is very safe to use in the recommended dosage for worming pets, even very young puppies and kittens.
For dosage instructions, see the Extended Information tab.

Why We Love it!
It is very hard to find a product to kill fleas & ticks on our beloved pets without sacrificing safety. Most products introduce a neurotoxin to the pet's system. D-Earth is non-toxic to pets and humans. Diatomaceous earth is not poisonous; it does not have to be eaten by the pest to be effective. Diatomaceous earth causes insects to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the insect's exoskeleton's cuticle. Its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. It remains effective as long as it is kept dry and undisturbed.

5 of 5 Great Customer Service July 28, 2015
Reviewer: Kitty Woldow from Boulder Creek, CA United States  
I made the order here because even with shipping, it was still a better price than elsewhere. Then I got a nice personal note saying the shipping hadn't been as much as estimated and they refunded me the difference. First time that ever happened anywhere! Wonderful crew working hard to please, will definitely be coming back repeatedly.
