Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth Powder - HUMANS:
Dosage: Take 1-2 tablespoons per day mixed in some kind of liquid or
food. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve,
stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling. Some
have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not
to take it right before sleeping. No worry about getting too
much--any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically
eliminated through the blood stream, kidneys and intestines.
recommended feeding rates for animals:
Kittens – ½ teaspoon
Cats – 1 teaspoon
Puppies – ½ to 1 teaspoon
Dogs under 35 lbs – 1 teaspoon
Dogs over 35 lbs – 1 tablespoon
Dogs over 100 lbs – 2 tablespoons
Cattle, Dairy Cows & Hogs – 2% of dry feed ration
Chickens – 5% in feed
Goats, Sheep, Alpacas, & Llamas – 2% in grain
Horses – ½ to 1 cup in daily ration
Zoo animals – 2% in daily feed
To be most effective, food grade diatomaceous earth must be fed long
enough to catch all newly hatching eggs or cycling of the worms
through the lungs and back to the stomach. A minimum of 60 days is
suggested by many, 90 days is advised for lungworms. A two
week break every 30 days is recommended.
Food grade diatomaceous earth works in a purely physical/mechanical
manner, not ‘chemical’ and thus has no chemical toxicity. Best yet,
parasites don’t build up a tolerance/immunity to its chemical
reaction, so rotation of wormers is unnecessary.
Diatomaceous Earth may be used as a barrier to control adult
flea beetles, sawfly, coddling moth, twig borer, thrips, mites,
cockroach, slugs, snails and many other insects such as:
Aphids, thrips, earwigs, silverfish, and ants. Can be used for
bedbugs, cabbage root flies, carrot root flies, fleas, pillbugs,
ticks and is helpful in dealing with fungus gnats.
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.
Carpet Beetles: Thoroughly dust along baseboards, carpet
edges, under furniture, carpet, and rugs, and in closets and
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.
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.
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.
Fly Larva: Keeps fly larvae from developing in manure, which
makes a significant reduction in the fly population.
