What is Diatomaceous Earth?

Diatomaceous earth is a remarkable, all-natural product made from tiny fossilized water plants or algea. Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring siliceous sedimentary mineral compound from microscopic skeletal remains of unicellular algae-like plants called diatoms. These plants have been part of the earth’s ecology since prehistoric times. It is believed that 30 million years ago the diatoms built up into deep, chalky deposits of diatomite. The super-fine diatoms are mined and ground up to render a powder that looks and feels like talcum powder. The coarse ground is less dusty and looks like fine gravel consistency. DE is approximately 3% magnesium, 88% silicon, 3% calcium, 3% sodium, 2% iron and many other trace minerals such as titanium, boron, manganese, copper and zirconium.

Organic Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is a natural (not calcined or flux calcined) compound.

Superfine diatomaceous earth (<0.3mm) may be used for feeding to animals, dusting through animal’s coat or dusting house for pest control.

Coarse ground diatomaceous earth (0.9-2mm) may be used for feeding to livestock or poultry, dusting pens, greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass, up to and including the day of harvest.

Superfine is available in 450g, 1kg, 4kg and 20kg bags (for animals)

Coarse ground is available in 1kg, 5kg and 20kg bags (for animal use – This is food grade but not sterilized)

    Hi, I purchased this product from you and have been using it for several months now on my poultry. I dust them with this and also put some in their seed and sprinkle it around the hen house.

    None of my birds have lice and it is great product. Delivery was prompt.

    I use this for pups and kittens. Just add a bit to their food each day for a month or so and this will break the cycle. I also add it to the birds’ seed and rabbit’s food.

    Also can be used on carpets – just don’t use too much or you’ll block the filters on your vacuum cleaner.

    I finally found a product that kills fleas on cats and dogs SAFELY. Over the years, I’ve become anxious about using chemical products, as it only takes one time for your precious pet to have a bad reaction. Plus I’ve witnessed alive fleas on my pet 2 days after applying the expensive chemical product.

    I did a lot of research into looking for a safe and effective treatment, and I read numerous times, about applying Diatomaceous Earth. I even watched video clips on UTube about it. I would rather not put it heavily on my cats long hair, as I want to avoid the dust that can come off it, from doing this. So I simply put about a teaspoonful of the powder into my hand, (I buy the extra fine powder from Greenpet) and I lightly sprinkle it onto my cat’s coat, and then simply give her nice long pats, and she doesn’t suspect a thing ha ha ha. This way I avoid the powder being dusty in the air. I’ve picked a flea off her an hour later, and it can’t even hop. The flea wobbles around as if it’s drunk before dying. I’ve poured out some of the Diatomaceous Earth into a smaller container, and every couple of days I do the exact same thing.

    One man on UTube shows putting it on his cat a lot more heavy then what I do, and he protects his cat’s face from the dust in the funniest manner. I ordered this on a Thursday, and it turned up the next day, Friday. I did pay for Express Postage, but this is still fast, considering Greenpet is in Queensland, and I’m in Canberra. I even give my cat half a teaspoon a day mixed in her food, as it’s also effective in killing worms in cats and dogs very safely, plus it gives them so much energy. You end up with a very happy pet. All animals can use it, including horses and cattle. And I bought a huge 2.5kg bag, and it was only 23 dollars, so I’m very happy, and so is my precious cat. Thankyou Greenpet.

    I bought this product to de flea my house. it was very effective as I noticed dead fleas on the carpet the following day. It is so much better to use a product which is harmless to my pets and to me, rather than using harsh chemicals
