Product Description

Diatomaceous Earth is a fine white powder made of the ground up fossilized remains of diatoms (a type of algae). It's 100% natural and it works because at a microscopic level the powder is very absorbent and effectively dehydrates parasites it comes into contact with causing them to shrivel up and expire. It can be added to animal bedding or used as a general supplement added to feed. It can be used to control both internal and external parasites.

Suitable for poultry, cats, dogs and horses. Please use according to the instructions on the bottle.

With the long dry summer I wanted to ensure my hens were not afflicted by red mite. We have been lucky so far. My hens got a good dusting of the power and didnt mind the application. Even so I ended up with more talc on me when they shook themselves out ensuring that I too remained free of red mite :-)
Yes, I would buy again.

I can't fault it. The puffer is great especially if you are putting it in fur. It seems to be working. No fleas although it does take a bit longer than over the counter flea treatments. My cats groom each other so they would lick the other chemicals off (they didn't like the taste). This is so much safer all round, One cat has reactions to other flea treatments- but nothing with this. Come the summer i will be buying more for the slugs.

I love Diatom, nl red ites detected so far after a year with chickens. They have made a dust bath under the coop and on dry days, i spread it there so the chickens rub themselves on the ground and take the powder. 100% natural, i like that.

Easy way to apply to pets and bedding with respect for the mechanism! Ie don't over do it, a little goes a long way. We live on the moor and this seems to have kept dogs relatively pest free with regular use. No nasty chemicals or skin reactions.

If anything, it gives me peace of mind that t is doing its job, haven't had a bite for months so I am assuming it works!
Had a slight bed bug problem and this seems to have solved it, delivery was fast too.

Very good and reliable service and the product arrived promptly. It is very useful to control slugs and snails in the garden but you need to keep applying it after the rain for plants that are growing outdoors. Also useful in the greenhouse and it doesn't need to be applied so frequently there.

Thought it was a bit expensive but the product goes a long way especially as the puffer spreads it so well. Fits well in the hand and is easy to squeeze but feels robust. Thank you.
