postheadericon I Use Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth

Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is EPA approved and registered for use against indoor and outdoor crawling insects, including cockroaches, ants, bedbugs, fleas, boxelder bugs, carpet beetles, centipedes, crickets, earwigs, grasshoppers, ticks, millipedes, scorpions, slugs, and silverfish. For use in Cracks, Crevices, Hiding and Running Areas, Under and Behind Appliances, and Wall and Floor Surfaces. For use in and around homes, office buildings, restaurants, motels, warehouses, theaters, schools, hotels, and food handling establishments.

DE is odorless and nontoxic.

Indoor and Outdoor Application: Sprinkle a light layer of DE in areas where pests frequent, including under stoves, cabinets, sinks, garbage cans, window and door frames and sills, entrance ways, sewer pipes and drains, and in cracks and crevices. Repeat treatment as needed.
For Carpet Beetles: Thoroughly dust along baseboards, carpet edges, under furniture, carpet, and rugs, and in closets and shelving.
For Bedbugs: Take apart bed and dust joints and channels. Dust any hollow tubing and the interior framework as well as the mattress and all cracks in the room.
For Fleas: Thoroughly dust carpets and pet’s bedding and sleeping areas, as well as cracks and baseboards. It also can be rubbed into your pet’s fur.
For Flies: Thoroughly dust areas where flies frequent (walls, straw bedding, livestock pens). It also can be applied to livestock coat as an insect repellent/contact insecticide.

DE is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of minuscule organisms called diatoms. The microscopically fine, sharp edges desiccate the insects’ exoskeleton upon contact and the pests dehydrate and die within hours. The insects also die when they eat the dust.

Don’t Forget our Best Friends – Dogs, Cats, Birds, Rabbits..
They need DE for Fleas, Ticks, Ear Mites..even worming
and as a health supplement to add to their pet food.
Please see our “Critters” page.

Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is a mainstay for organic 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.

Farms and Ranches use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth as a feed supplement for animals and livestock for better health. DE is also recommended by veterinarians as a health supplement when added daily to pet food, and as a topical flea control treatment. Food Grade DE can also be found in food that is eaten by most people every day, as DE is widely used and FDA approved for use by the nation’s farms in agricultural grain storage.

This brings us to one of the most exciting trends … Increased use of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for human health benefits. Because of FDA control and oversight of labeling, many wonderful natural, herbal or organic supplements will seldom if ever claim to be treatments or remedies for specific maladies. This is also true of Food Grade DE.

Within this site, you can learn about DE as an effective bed bug remedy and also of the many  everyday household uses for this remarkable substance. Every home should have it.

It is not intended to substitute for advice given by a physician, pharmacist, or other licensed healthcare professional. User statements regarding DE as dietary supplement have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition.

* Any food grade DE uses discussed on this site other than those approved by the EPA, FDA, or USDA are strictly anicdotal reports of what countless numbers of users as well as we ourselves have experienced using diatomaceous earth

ABOUT EPA LABELS: All of the Food Grade DE that we sell is exactly the same product on the inside, but there is a very important difference in the labeling. Because DE kills insects, only when used for that purpose, it falls under EPA regulatory control. All of the claims that we make on this site about killing insects can only be made on food grade DE with the EPA label on it. We sell the EPA labeled product in 5 and 50 lb. bags. We also sell the NON-EPA labled 50 lb. bag. Most of our packaging reflects general use, and therefore has no EPA label on it. If you purchase the non-EPA labeled product, you acknowledge that you are buying the diatomaceous earth for some other purpose than for killing insects.

Going Green Using Diatomaceous Earth How-To-Tips

postheadericon How do you eat dirt?

I think the number one question I get about my dirt is….    How do you eat it?

I have heard people put it in orange juice, coffee, mix it in milk.
Sprinkle it on peanut butter and on popcorn, I have even heard
people put it in pancake mix.
Diatomaceous earth looks just like flour and it has the same
consistency. I either put it in my protein shake that I whip using
a hand held blender or I stir it into yogurt.
There is no taste to it and the blender that I use takes just a couple
of seconds to mix my shake creamy smooth. I would never know I was
eating dirt.
How do you eat yours?

postheadericon My Nail Have Never been Healthier

I have never been one to have long nail. I have never had a professional manicure. I just can’t see why I would want to pay someone to do something that I can do myself… Call me CHEAP, it is my middle name.
Besides, I have never had long nails. They get to a certain point and then they break off crack or peel.
Since I have been eating Diatomaceous Earth (DE) I have noticed that my nails are much stronger and they are growing. I am growing much healthier finger nails. Just another added benefit to eating dirt!
