All Diatomaceous Earth is not the same.


Diatomaceous Earth packaged 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.


FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR® 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.


Why fresh water vs. salt water Diatomaceous Earth?


Fresh 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.


What's the difference between amorphous and crystalline silica?


Amorphous 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).


Can 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 drain pipes.
Lightly dust areas around windowsills, doors and other places where pests may enter. 

Rugs 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.



How 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.


How 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.
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 problem. 
Over time, however, some people have developed illnesses from the residues of these chemicals, and some insects have begun to develop immunity to the chemicals used. 
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.

Our 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.


Human Supplement:


As is 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.

We 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.
