Organic D/Earth Powder
Thomas Labs Organic D/Earth (Diatomaceous Earth) is a non-toxic, safe mineral of crushed fossils used to control external pests
when sprinkled in kennels and bedding areas. D/Earth can also be given in food daily as a supplement or to
control internal parasites.
Diatomaceous Earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of
hard-shelled algae. D/Earth is the highest concentration of fossil shell flour available, ground into a fine powder.
Diatomaceous Earth is a remarkable substance that actually dries out the waxy
outer layer of fleas so they dehydrate and eventually die.
Internal feeding of food grade diatomaceous earth helps eliminate most
internal worms, including roundworms, pin worms, tapeworms. When fed
daily, it's excellent in keeping fly concentrations down. Since food grade
diatomaceous earth is eliminated from the body exactly the way it went in, it
helps reduce the manure odor and kills flies that come in contact with it.
