Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade 2.5# Jugs

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 4 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, but DE is also used by non-organic growers 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: If you plan to order 2 or more, you can save by ordering the 4 pack (DE-4-2.5-JUG) which includes 4 2.5 lb jugs. NOT FOR SALE IN THE STATE OF TEXAS-PLEASE ORDER THE EPA LABELED 5 OR 50 LB. BAG

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.
  • It 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, 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.
  • Because 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.
  • The following can be given once or twice daily:
    • Puppies and dogs weighing less than 10 pounds: .5 to 1 teaspoon
    • Puppies and dogs weighing 11 to 19 pounds: 2 teaspoons
    • Puppies and dogs weighing 20 to 50 pounds: 1 to 1.5 tablespoons
    • Puppies and dogs weighing 51 to 100 pounds: 2 tablespoons
    • Puppies and dogs weighing over 100 pounds: 3 to 4 tablespoons
    • Kittens: .5 to 1 teaspoon
    • Cats: 2 teaspoons
