  • Could You Move to a Tiny House?
    I love to watch those Tiny House shows on TV. Since I am a pack rat I just can’t imagine moving from the house that I am in now to a Tiny House. I have a 5 bedroom house.. and it is packed to the rafters… in every nook and cranny. I hate to part […]

postheadericon Pure Diatomaceous Earth

Since 1962 Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (fossil shell flour) was used in grain storage and other food products as an anti-caking agent. As time went on grain storage managers noticed that the treated grain was bug free. And the areas surrounding the fossil shell flour dust were fly free.

Further tests and analysis were done. Results were the microscopic particles in Diatomaceous Earth
scratch the carapace of insects such as roaches, silverfish, ants, bedbugs, flies, scorpions, crickets, fleas, ticks, lice, etc, resulting in dehydration and death. An example is a fly will walk over the fine powder and get it on its tarsal pads, then rub the irritant behind its head and between thoracic segments and die.

More experiments and testing was done and additional positive side effects were noted. Fossil Shell
Flour has over 14 minerals such as: Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Iron, Phosphorus,
Manganese, Chromium, Cobalt . . . . When added to livestock and poultry feed rations productivity
increased, parasites eliminated, diseases and veterinary costs dropped, cured E-Coli, and scours.

Food grade fossil shell flour contains fine silica that carries a negative ion charge. Parasites and disease
organisms carry a positive ion charge. The introduction of negative charged ions in a diseased or
parasitic animal is irritating and disruptive to the life cycle of the parasite or disease organism.

This Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth product is listed in the OMRI, Organic Materials Review Institute,
for use by Certified Organic Farmers.

NOTE: This natural food grade Diatomaceous Earth is not to be confused with the swimming pool grade
Diatomaceous Earth, which is chemically treated and partially melted and consequently contains
crystalline silica which can be a respiratory hazard. Natural Diatomaceous Earth is not a respiratory
hazard because human and animal bodies can dissolve it.
