DIATOM POWDER IS JUST ANOTHER NAME GIVEN TO DIATOMACEOUS EARTH. THE REASON IS THE POWDER IS MADE UP OF MICROSCOPIC FOSSILISED SINGLE CELL ALGAE CALLED DIATOMS.
This DIATOM is perfect for livestock, chickens and pigeons to eradicate Red Mites but if used from the beginning before Red Mite appears you will not get Red mite. We use it on all our chickens and have never seen a Red Mite.
ALTHOUGH RED MITE DIE OFF FROM THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER THERE ARE MANY OTHER LICE AND FLEAS THAT SEEK OUT THE WARMTH OF THE BIRDS AND THEIR NESTBOXES SO IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE POWDER BE USED CONTINUALLY THROUGHOUT THE WINTER MONTHS AS WELL TO BUILD UP A TOTALLY MITE AND BUG FREE AREA, MAKING IT A HEALTHIER PLACE FOR YOUR ANIMALS.
It is a fine grey/tan powder which is made from the fossilized remains of Diatoms (a type of algae) which are then ground into a fine powder. The way it works in simple terms is as follows. The powder is very absorbent and because under a microscope it can be seen to have extremely sharp edges which means it scratches the waxy protection on Red mites, fleas, lice, worms and many other pests. Once scratched it absorbs all the moisture from the pest which shrivels and dies.
For use with chickens just once a week, puff some Diatom Powder into the soft nesting material within their nest boxes. So when they sit on the nests to lay their vents will come in contact with the powder. Remove perches from their brackets and puff onto the brackets and perch ends as this is where Red Mites live and they crawl along the perches on to the chickens at night. If the chickens have a favourite dust bath puff some into thedust bath which will enable the chickens to dust themselves with the powder, or you can dust them yourself. You can also add the Diatom Powder to their feed and this will eradicate intestinal worms if you are feeding dry feed like layers pellets you can put a small amount of vegetable oil onto the pellets which will enable the DE to stick to them. Because the Diatom Powder is totally organic and natural you can safely continue to eat the eggs or in the case of other animals meat or milk can still be used without harm.
This Feed Grade DIATOM is totally organic and safe. I will try and explain its fantastic properties in this advert to assist you in thedecision of whether to use this organic natural substance or another chemical based product. With Diatom Powder you can be sure you are using a totally safe product that has no detrimental effects on animal produce. It contains less than 1% percent of Crystal & Silicon. Some of the uses for Diatom Powder include; household pets, gardens, flower beds, field crops, grain storage, and livestock feeding. Diatom powder is Mother Nature's product with no harm to the environment, pets or to people. Diatomaceous Earth is not actually an earth, it is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called DIATOMS. Diatom Powder kills by physical action, not chemical, by puncturing the insect’s exoskeleton and absorbing its body fluids, thus posing no harm to warm-blooded life.Moreover, on any surface, these natural pesticide products have a remarkable repellency factor. As long as it is present, insects tend to stay away, making a serious infestation unlikely. Also, the more it is used, the more an environment is created that tends to make insects feel unwelcome.
All livestock, Horses, Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Rabbits, Chickens, Pigeons and others will benefit from the use of Diatom Powder. It is completely safe and nontoxic. Some of the benefits are; Control of fleas and ticks, Red Mite and stimulates basic metabolism, converts feed better, reduces odourand moisture in barns coops and stables, results in better coat and hoof condition, keeps fly larvae from developing in manure, noticeably reducing the fly population, reduces annual vet bills, controls worms and internal parasites without chemicals, better egg production, stronger eggs, and reduces overall animal stress. Diatom Powder can be mixed right in with the animals feed. Cows/Horses get 1-2 oz per day, Sheep/Goats/Pigs get 1/2 oz per day, for Chickens and other livestock you need to weight the feed and add 2% of that weight in Diatom Powder. Your livestock will also get the benefit of trace minerals that make up Diatom Powder.
Just add 7-10 lbs. of Diatom Powder to each ton of grain as it is conveyed into thestorage. When added to grain, Diatom Powder kills the bugs that are present,and protects the grain from further attacks.
Bugs can not become immune as they are killed by physical action, not chemical.
Our other houshold pets come in all shapes and sizes. But all will benefit fromthis great product. So easily protect them with Diatom Powder. When lightly rubbed into their coats it is effective against fleas, ticks, lice and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and their bedding and houses. It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have. When using as a de-wormer mix the Diatom Powder into your pets food. Mix well with dry and wet food.This is a rough guide to how much for your size pet. It does not have to be done every day just a couple of days a week will suffice.

Kittens – ½ teaspoon/ day
Dogs – 100lbs+ -2 tablespoons/ day
50 – 100 lbs – 1 tablespoon/ day

GARDEN AND GREENHOUSE
Natural plant protection against insects: DIATOM is the organic way of controlling insects in the garden, greenhouse, orchard, and more. Use it for control of slugs, whitefly, beetles, mites, grasshoppers, etc. For use in the greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass - up to and including day of harvest. Ensure coverage over the entire plant, including under the leaves. For young plants, two pounds per acre may be adequate. For larger plants, five lb/acre may be enough. Examine the leaves periodically to make sure that the DE goes all over the plant and the leaves are not eaten by bugs.
Around the house you can use Diatom Powder for control of cockroaches, silverfish, ants, bedbugs, flies, fleas, crickets, and many others. Diatom Powder can be used in and around the home, yard, animal housing, etc.
When using diatom powder regularly and/or in large amounts, wear a dust mask, gloves and a good set of goggles not because it’s toxic but as with all fine powders it can cause breathing problems.
