Item Information

Experience the difference of pure food grade diatomaceous earth! Safe for human and pet use, our DE is free from all additives, certified organic, professionally packaged, and is the only official diatomaceous earth health supplement on the market.

  • A natural health supplement. Being high in silica, DE supports the growth of healthy hair, skin, nails and joints
  • A stain remover. DE can absorb more than twice it's weight in liquid. It is effective at lifting stains on carpet and furniture as well as grease and oil spills on concrete floors.
  • A cleaning booster and natural exfoliant. DE has a very porous structure, allowing it to add a gentle scrub to your cleaners or even skincare products
  • A natural deodorizer. DE can be applied directly to your pets coat to limit odors. It also works well in the bottom of your trash can to keep unwanted smells at bay
  • Preserve dry food storage. DE can be mixed in with any dry food storage including grains, flour, legumes, rice, and corn. Because DE absorbs liquids, it will help keep your food dry and uncontaminated
Diatomaceous earth is made up of tiny fossilized diatoms (plankton) that have accumulated over millennia in fresh water lakes. These pure deposits are mined and ground into a fine powder that is naturally high in silica and other minerals. It is this chalky white powder that we call diatomaceous earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Control I add a teaspoon of food grade diatomaceous earth in the mornings to my alpacas' serving of pellets and it has almost eliminated fly infestation. Because it can be ingested without problems in large animal intestines, but it creates havoc on the intestines of fly larvae, no adult fly hatching occurs. I'm going to introduce it to the grain I feed my horses in the summer, too. Very affordable as it goes a long way, and it's also an eco-friendly way to tackle pesky and nasty flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diatomaceous Earth “Food Grade” I’m new to raising chickens, because of the reviews I decided to purchase diatomaceous earth “food grade”. I use it everywhere in my coup to eliminate any odors, and am very pleased so far with the results. Best of all this product is safe for animals and humans!

Would this product be effective if spread on dirt to kill ants and be safe for show swine that are rooting up the dirt?

Asked by: JenniferSan
We have included the manufacturer's response below: For diatomaceous earth to be effective against insects, it needs to come in physical contact with the exoskeleton of the insect. As long as the ants come in physical contact, spreading it over the dirt should be effective. You would want to keep diatomaceous earth away from the swine’s face as it is a dust and can be an irritant. Here are some articles from our website that the customer might find useful:

Can you put this on your dog's fur to kill fleas and will it hurt them?

Asked by: Teresa12
The manufacturer's website states the following: "Unfortunately the EPA doesn't allow us to promote applying DE directly to your dog or cat, and so it isn't a topic that we are able to cover in detail. Many pet owners do with positive results however. In order to ensure the quality of our products and information, we are committed to meeting all FDA and EPA regulations. Because of this commitment, we are unable to provide an answer to this question without damaging our good standing with either the FDA or the EPA."

Will this be effective it killing and keep Arizona bark scorpions away from my home and planters/rocks if I sprinkle it everywhere?   Also, I live in Las Vegas Nv and I will want to buy DE in bulk (if it is really effective for scorpions), can I buy bulk?

Asked by: RChispas
Yes, to both questions. DE should be effective against any insect that has an exoskeleton. If the insect is exposed to enough DE it will dry out the scorpion. Below is a link to information you can give to the customer on how we recommend DE’s use for scorpions. For ordering this product, please contact Tractor Supply's Customer Solutions Department at 877-718-6750.

Will it repel flies away from chicken coops

Asked by: MeChele13
Diatomaceous earth is very irritating to a fly. If they spend enough time in it, they will die. Any surface that is coated in DE will be one a fly doesn't want to spend time on. DE doesn't produce any smells to ward flies off, however. It's only upon contact that a fly will be repelled.
