Will this kill fleas on my cats and dog? And will it kill parasites in their body if mixed with dry food?

Asked by: Vikki1968
Red Lake Earth is not registered for use as an pesticide, therefore we cannot recommend that it be used for this purpose; rather it is registered for use in animal feed as an anti-caking agent or pelleting aid. Food Chemical Codex Grade diatomaceous earth does in general kill crawling insects, however registered diatomaceous earth insecticides (like Last Crawl) come with instructions for use against crawling insects. And although some people tell us they use diatomaceous earth to control internal parasites, Red Lake Earth is not registered for that purpose. If you choose to use the product in this manner, you would have to do your own research as this is considered on off-label use.

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.

Can Red Lake Earth be used to cut down the bothersome flies when beef cattle are out in the pastures? If so, what is the best way to keep the flies away, in their feed or dusted on their bodies?

Asked by: Sparkie1313
Red Lake Earth is not registered for use as an insecticide/pesticide, therefore we cannot recommend that it be used for this purpose (it 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). However, Food Chemical Codex Grade diatomaceous earth, in general, does kill crawling insects and larvae when they come into contact with it. If you choose to use the product for this purpose, you would have to do your own research as this is considered an off label use.
