Diatomaceous Earth, also known as DE, is a natural source of silica made from milled diatomite rock. 

Use it externally to treat lice, mites, ticks, fleas, midges, ants and other biting insects. 

Feed internally to maintain low worm burdens alongside your usual wormer (great for dogs who love to eat soil and dead things!)

External uses:

  • Kills parasites and biting insects
  • On pets and livestock
  • On pet bedding, dusting boxes and loose straw
  • On patios, decking, hard floors, carpets and beds
  • Deters slugs and snails
  • Protects plants, fruit and veggies too
  • Perfect to getting rid of flea eggs and larvae that may be lurking in the house

Internal uses: 

  • Helps maintain a low worm burden in dogs, cats and livestock
  • Absorbs toxins
  • Improves condition of skin, coat and claws
  • Also keeps feather's in great condition

Safe for internal and external use.

Daily feeding rates:

  • Dogs - dogs over 25kg - 1 level tablespoon = 15g
  • Dogs - under 25kg - 1 level teaspoon = 5g
  • Cats - 1 level teaspoon = 5g
  • Horses - guide for 200kg bodyweight - 50g in daily feed ration
  • Chickens - 1-2% by weight in grain or pellets

Inhalation: This product contains negligible crystalline silica, so it is safe in that respect, and it would have to be inhaled for a long continuous period of time to cause irritation to humans or animals.

Only humans or animals with pre- existing bronchial problems should avoid inhaling the fine DE dust (as for any dust). That person should wear a face mask.

For example: Order on a Friday and your parcel will be sent out on Monday for delivery on Tuesday. If for any reason we can't send out your order that day, ie. because we're waiting on a stock delivery, we will send it out as soon as we have it and refund the difference in the delivery charge.
