"Great for Parasites"
It works great for mites and fleas in my animals, and superb for combating intestinal worms in rabbits and dogs (it only took 2 days, and I saw a bunch of dead and slowed worms in the droppings). I'm even going to try it on my goats. It's also a good source of silica (which many people are deficient in). I just think the price is a bit much.
"It works IF you follow directions ... and I mean search the net... not just whats on the box!"
Several people have said it didn't work... well if it got wet... it's not gonna work, if you don't use it often enough... it's not gonna work. Basically, go online search for details on using D earth for pest control.... it takes more than putting it on once and forgetting. I know for worms it worked great on my Cattle Dog ... I gave it in his food for 3 to 5 days then a few days later he passed a large number of worms (he'd been wormed with traditional wormers from the vet at most a month before and this got the best results...) and if you apply it to your dog and the yard and the house... (with nature stuff you can't just treat the dog you have to treat EVERYTHING or it doesn't work well!)
"Wouldent want to be without it!"
I love this stuff! Sprinkle under the dogs and cats food bowl and no more ants. Feed it to the dogs and goats every day to help with worms. I use a dust sprayer to dust the goat shed and chicken pen. That cuts the fly population in half for me. I even take it myself everyday ^_^ I buy it in the 50lb size from my local farm supply store tho. Its expensive here.
I tryed this stuff for the whole summer and did not effect my cats at all nore ants...i think this is a big come on to take our money.......
bought this to try flea control on our 3 dogs and cat. Didn't help a bit!
Trying to avoid using a lot of chemicals on pets can be tough when you're fighting off fleas and ticks. Discovering diatomaceous earth was a big help in our three-cat, two-dog household. I filled an old sock and used it to dab D/Earth on the fussy cats. The dogs enjoyed being rubbed. Try not to breathe the stuff, though; it's an irritant that shouldn't be inhaled. When ants were driving us crazy in the kitchen and the bathroom, a sprinkling of D/Earth along the interior walls and along the exterior foundation finally got rid of them - in one application.
I used this product all last summer and had good control of fleas for my pack. I fed it to my horses and dogs for internal worm control too. No one refused to eat it.
