Diatomaceous Earth Powder is a siliceous fossil soil conditioner & animal feed supplement. It is BioGro Certified Organic, made up of tiny fossilized diatoms (plankton) that have accumulated over millennia in freshwater lakes. These pure deposits are ground into a fine powder that is naturally high in silica and other minerals. This DE siliceous fossil powder contains 88-92% silica, of which 99% is amorphous silica. There are also 15 essential trace minerals, including, phosphorous, selenium, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, and iron.

Diatomaceous Earth Powder acts as a natural insecticide. When pests to come into contact with Diatomaceous Earth’s sharp edges, these edges are able to shred insect exoskeletons. This causes the pest to to lose moisture, eventually dehydrating it to death. DE powder is also exceptionally porous, making it effective for drying damp places out (e.g. barns, sheds). Spreading diatomaceous earth in areas where moisture often collects can dries out breeding beds where many pests reproduce. 

When used as a supplement in animal feed, it provides naturally occurring beneficial Micro-nutrients.

Using Diatomaceous earth powder on chickens and birds:
Diatomaceous Earth powder is a great natural alternative for getting rid of mites and lice on chickens and other birds. When mites crawl through the diatomaceous earth powder, the microscopically sharp shards that make up diatomaceous earth powder scratch the mite’s waxy shell, causing them to die. Diatomaceous earth powder also makes sucking and crawling insects dehydrated when they come in touch with the DE powder.

Diatomaceous earth powder is completely natural and contains no nasty chemicals. It can safely be eaten by chickens or pets. It is a great addition to your chicken’s dust bath all year round.

Apply DE powder under the wings and around the vent area. Also apply to the chicken coop by spreading the powder in cracks, crevices and nest box areas where mites normally hide. Clean the perches and floors and apply DE powder to those areas.

Duration: Lice have a three-week life cycle so it is important to keep treating the hens and chickens by dusting them for three to four weeks with green trading diatomaceous powder. Do not mix with water while applying. Using DE powder continuously for 3 years will not only help to get rid of adult lice, but also help to kill the eggs and nits.
