Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price and product! I have used this for several years, and am always happy with it. My many ways of using it includes in the chicken coop, on the floor, to keep ants and mites out, I rub into the goats fur to keep pests away and sprinkle around where they bed down, I use it in my raised beds and potted plants to keep ants out, sprinkle under the rabbit hutches to keep ants out (I live where fire ants are very problematic and hate using chemicals).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT PEST KILLER We bought this Sunday. Used it immediately and its now Tuesday. ALL of my cats are flea free now. The calcium bentonite helps the animal detox safely from the toxic effects of both internal and external parasites. I don't know where people are getting that is makes DE any less effective. However, this is by nature clay. But I'd rather all my furniture and carpet be covered in this, then fleas, flea poo and tapeworm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle My Oripei dog, myself and my ten year old son had mysterious bites everynight and could not see any bugs or fleas. My dog Lucy began chewing at her skin so intensely that it caused a huge tumor looking nodule on the back of her ankles. She was miserable and I was in tears for her. My friend told me about the product and it worked almost immediately. First, I dusted her raw spots with the DE and then put some throughout her coat and brushed her. I also mixed a tablespoon with her food and the next morning she was totally free from bleeding sores. We are all so happy. Highly, Highly recommend.

I have friends that are taking this to detox, there bottle which is by red lake gives Instruction for human use. But I just read in other question it was stated not for human consumption??? Is there a different one by red lake earth??

Asked by: Gabenlara
Yes, that is correct - Red Lake Earth Diatomaceous Earth is registered for use in animal feed as an anti-caking agent or pelleting aid, in an amount not to exceed two percent of the total diet. As it is not registered for human consumption, we do not recommend that it be used for that purpose. Red Lake Earth products manufactured by us do not have instructions for human use. Do you happen to have an image or web address for this product? We would like to look into this further in order to ensure our product name is not being used improperly.

Would this work in the garden to kill bugs? Do I sprinkle on plants or on the ground? Is it safe?

Asked by: Hsize
Red Lake Earth is not registered for use as an insecticide (is registered for use as an anti-caking agent and flow aid to be added to animal feed in an amount not exceeding 2% of the total diet). However, food grade diatomaceous earth, in general, does kill crawling insects. Our Last Crawl products are registered for use against crawling insects in the home and garden, and contain the same food grade DE found in Red Lake Earth. However, because they are registered insecticides, the DE in Last Crawl is specially labeled for this purpose. Below, please find some use instructions for our Last Crawl Insect DEstroyer Insecticide Powder. Dry Powder Application Apply LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder to cracks and crevices with container provided, hand or powder duster, bulbous duster, flour sifter or other suitable equipment to areas where crawling insects are found. Apply lightly and uniformly. For best results, use in areas where dust application cannot be affected by heavy rains or high winds. When applying to plants, use a light dusting of LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder on both sides of the plant leaves. Wet Powder Application Mix 6 tablespoons of LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder per 1 quart of water. Mix well before application, and continue mixing during application. Use a bottle with spray settings. Apply to the point of wetness around foundations, shrubs, flower beds, gardens, using a suitable applicator. One quart of mixture will treat 108 sq. ft. Product remains effective for as long as it is present. Apply a light dusting of LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder to areas where insects are found or may hide including ant trails, gardens, shrub/flower beds, door frames, entrance ways, perimeter foundations, patios, window frames, window sills, garbage or recycling bins, etc. Dust insects directly where possible. For best results, leave the treated area undisturbed for two to three days to eliminate existing and reoccurring infestations. When using LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder for garden use, wash all produce thoroughly before using. Please note: When using DE insecticides, such as Last Crawl, please see label for full and specific use instructions. Our Last Crawl products are safe to use and are OMRI listed for use in organic production.

Does this have an expiration date? I was given a bag to use for my animal feed and garden (I have insect problems in my garden bed) but I don’t know how old the bag is & it’s full. It’s a fine light brown powder.. does it expire?

Asked by: Yvar
Red Lake Earth does not expire. As long as it is stored in a cool, dry area, it is good for an indefinite period of time.

Can I put this product in a spray bottle and spray it or just dust it around my vegetables in my garden and my plants and flowers?

Asked by: Robin45
Red Lake Earth is not registered for use as an insecticide/pesticide (it is registered for use in animal feed as an anti-caking agent or pelleting aid) therefore we cannot recommend that it be used for this purpose. However, Food Chemical Codex Grade diatomaceous earth, in general, is known to kill crawling insects. DE pesticide products like Last Crawl, that are registered for use against insects, can be applied using a wet or dry application. Last Crawl Insecticide Powder, for example, can be applied to cracks and crevices with the container provided, a hand or power duster, bulbous duster, flour sifter or other suitable equipment to areas where crawling insects are found. The product should be applied lightly and uniformly. For best results, DE insecticides should be used in areas where dust application cannot be affected by heavy rains or high winds. For a wet powder application of Last Crawl - mix 6 tablespoons of the product per 1 quart of water. Mix well before application, and continue mixing during application. Use a bottle with spray settings and apply to the point of wetness around foundations, shrubs, flower beds and gardens using a suitable applicator. One quart of this mixture will treat 108 sq. ft. The product will remain effective for as long as it is present. It is helpful to try to keep the DE to protected areas, such as cracks and crevices, where it will not be disturbed. Please read and follow all label instructions when applying DE products registered for pest control. As well, please note: when using diatomaceous earth insecticides, it is important to keep in mind that DE may effect many types of insects, including bees. Therefore, it is best to avoid dusting surfaces that bees might come in contact with. When using Last Crawl for garden use, wash all produce thoroughly before using.
