Food-grade DE for Pest Control and Overall Health and Wellbeing
Wholistic Pet Organics Diatomaceous Earth Pest Control DeBug Powder consists of the dried skeletons of microscopic sea creatures called diatoms. It is a safe, non-chemical alternative to chemical dewormers that comes from freshwater deposits. Can also be used topically to help relieve itching due to fleas and ticks. When it comes in contact with an insect, the silica from it removes the waxy outer coating from the insect’s exoskeleton, and it will die of dehydration. Other product benefits include healthy digestion, absorption of harmful toxins, promoting stronger bone structure with calcium, and preventing relief from biting insects naturally, both inside and out!
There are many differences in the quality of DE
First you need to make sure that the product is actually food-grade and certified by the FDA. Many companies will simply put "food-grade" on their label even though it is not (much like the word "organic" or "natural"). Customers need to understand where they are buying from and should be buying from a reputable, FDA certified company. There are hundreds of deposits in the US of which only 4 are FDA certified to be food-grade.
Our DE is from fresh water deposits
DE from saltwater is not as effective as those diatoms from freshwater; Their shell is less fragile. Also, diatoms from saltwater contain many more species of diatoms and sediment leading to a less effective product.
Clay and sediments effects on DE
Our DE is analyzed to have less clay and sediment than other food-grade DE which again, makes them less effective. This clay and sediment clog the pores of the diatoms. Clean, open pores are critical to DE working effectively. With that being said, our DE is truly a pure, more effective product.

Great, I think – “I ordered Diatomaceous Earth for my cats and dogs... I Honestly see a big difference in our border collie that I believe was infected from eating bird seed and bird poop... ( it happens) he’s feeling a lot better and no problem feeding the powder into his wet food.... hoping to use it longer and see about fleas and ticks...” Kristi King (Bentonville, US)
