All Diatomaceous Earth is not the same.
under our FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR® label comes from an extremely pure
fresh water deposit of the diatom Aulacoseira from a deposit created in the
Miocene epoch. Why is this diatom so special? Its shell is made of amorphous
silica. Its shape and hardness are important to how it works. Its hardness
keeps it from dissolving in liquid. The holes along the diatom's wall allow it
to absorb moisture, hence its use as an anti-caking agent. Darker colored Diatomaceous
Earth often contains an excess of a particular mineral such as iron or
a high percentage of clay.
is almost pure white and consists of 89% ( and sometimes more) Silicon Dioxide
plus 28 trace minerals which means more diatom surface area is available. More
diatom area means greater absorptive capacity and more improvement in the
mixability and flowability of animal feed. FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR® does
not swell, does not absorb nutrients and poses no long term hazard when used as
an anti-caking agent in your animal's feed.
fresh water vs. salt water Diatomaceous Earth?
water deposits like ours have a consistent diatom presence. Their fossilized
shells have maintained their tubular shape. This shape and strength of the
fossil shell is critical to its effectiveness. Our deposit has 89 - 95 percent
amorphous silica content. This deposit is also more consistent in its purity of
other elements that have settled in it. A fresh water deposit is confined to
the run off water of its surrounding environment. A fresh water deposit in the
mountains, such as ours, formed when snow was pure and its run off provided the
water source these diatoms lived in. Salt water deposits contain a mix of types
of diatoms of different shapes. Their fossilized shells are fragile and break
easily. This renders them ineffective for our purposes. The salt water deposits
are less predictable in their sediments.
the difference between amorphous and crystalline silica?
is silica in its natural occurring state. It is a trace mineral every mammal on
the planet needs to live. It becomes crystalline when it is exposed to extreme
heat through volcanic activity or commercial manufacturing means. The type
of Diatomaceous Earth used in swimming pool, and other,
filtration systems is crystalline silica. Crystalline silica is extremely
dangerous when inhaled or ingested. It is not biodegradable. Perma-Guard Diatomaceous
Earth contains less than one half of 1% of crystalline silica and is
considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe).
I use D.E. in my house to kill bugs?
Our DE is useful around the house for control of roaches, silverfish, ants,
bedbugs, flies, fleas, crickets, and many other insects. Our DE can be applied
as a dry dust or mixed with water at the rate of 2 oz. per quart (60 g per
liter) and sprayed as a liquid.
DE needs to be applied as a physical barrier that insects must crawl across to
be damaged. Apply dust liberally around cracks and crevices, under stoves and
refrigerators, and in likely hiding places. Be sure to treat around sinks and
Lightly dust areas around windowsills, doors and other places where pests may
and carpets: Apply a thin layer of D.E. all over rugs and carpets to control
fleas. Rake the D.E. into the fibers and leave overnight. When cleaning, do not
make a special effort to remove the dust in the rug. It will continue to kill
live fleas, repel others, and will deodorize the carpet.
For even better control of flies and roaches, liberally dust the outside walls
of the house, shrubbery, and outbuildings (such as barns, stables, kennels or
corrals). Repeat if needed.
about in my garden?
DE will help control aphids, whiteflies, beetles, mites, leaf hoppers, and many
others. Food Grade DE can be used on any fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains
and grass -- up to and including day of harvest.
For lawns, apply 8 to 16 oz. of DE per 1000 sq. ft. of the yard. Two or three
applications per year should do the job. This can be done as dry dust or as
wettable powder, using suitable equipment.
For crops and gardens, DE can be applied as either a dry powder or mixed with
water and sprayed. The goal is to get coverage over the entire plant,
especially under the leaves. For young plants, as little as two pounds per acre
may be adequate. For larger plants, 5 lb/acre is probably sufficient. With
extra growth, it might be necessary to increase the amount. An examination of
the leaves will tell if the leaf bottom is covered.
can I control insects on my pets and livestock?
DE is effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on dogs, cats,
poultry, and any warm-blooded livestock. Our DE is a food-grade product which
is preferred for animals which tend to lick their fur.
Lightly work the material into the hair of the animal, or provide a pile or
loose bag of it for animals to roll in or rub against to dust themselves. Pay
strict attention to places where the animal cannot reach, such as the scalp.
Dust the ears of the animal with care. Dust the animal's bedding and areas
where the animal sleeps, as well as cracks and crevices adjacent to them.
Repeat once a month or as necessary. Individual ticks observed on the animal
should be dusted thoroughly.
For confined animals infested with fleas and ticks, dust the entire area with
D.E. is very absorbent and will dry out skin if used over a long period.
Observe the animals’ skin carefully and discontinue use if the skin becomes
excessively dry or irritated.
How should I use DE to control insects in Grain Storage?
Insect damage to stored grain has been a serious problem for millennia. In
recent decades, mankind has resorted to toxic chemicals to control this
Over time, however, some people have developed illnesses from the residues of
these chemicals, and some insects have begun to develop immunity to the
When our DE is used for insect control, the insects are killed and they do not
become immune. Its effectiveness doesn’t fade or deteriorate, but keeps on
working as long as needed. Our DE is a food-grade product designed for use in
grain storage and on growing plants and vegetables.
Blend about 2% by weight of DE into the stored grain or flour.
DE has no taste or smell and is harmless to humans and animals, so it does not
have to be removed from the grain or flour before processing.
the case with most natural/organic products, this product
requires an FDA Disclaimer: "This information is not intended to diagnose,
treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Discussion of Diatomaceous Earth health
benefits is based solely on personal experience and testimony shared by
individual DE users and this company cannot market or label DE as a human
health supplement with specific medical claims." Having said that, we
can provide our personal experiences (Owners and Employees) and ask you to take
a look at what consumers say about DE and at the evidence of DE's important
cleansing properties and value as a rich source of Silica.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) has been reported to absorb methyl
mercury, E. coli, endotoxins, viruses (including poliovirus), organophosphate
pesticide residues, and drug residues. DE is a natural organic colon cleanser
and detoxifier. This cleansing and detoxification alone has a myriad of positive
effects in the human body. Adding to this is the widespread deficiency in human
dietary sources of what is publicized as "the most important trace element
in human health" - Silica, and how rich DE is in this substance, we begin
to understand the basis of the health benefits that so many have attested to.
Only a trace amount of the DE silica is absorbed into the blood stream, and
just that amount is a substantial gain for the user.
A growing number of people count beneficial human side effects of
Diatomaceous Earth and SILICA as being nothing short of vital to their
well-being and exhibit genuine devotion toward its use. The only cautionary
side effect that we have found relating to Food Grade DE has to do with direct
inhalation and is essentially the same caution that is advised when handling
baby powder. DE is a very fine powder.
personally take and recommend 1-2 tablespoons each day mixed in any type of
liquid. Our Food Grade DE is a very fine powder and mixes very easily and has
not taste; however it does have a chalky texture.

I've been using the DE for a month now and have practically

compost pile will soon qualify as organic compost. –JR
