Organic Anti-Parasite Dust made from Fossilized Algae!
Prevents unwanted guests (Parasites) from climbing your birdfeeder or birdhouse post!
Diatomaceous Earth has various uses as an anti-caking agent and parasite deterrent for livestock and birdhouses. Our Diatomaceous Earth is an organic and all natural feed-grade product comprised of tiny fossilized water plants called diatoms (algae). Diatomaceous Earth is odor-free, tasteless, and has an indefinite shelf life if kept dry. Made in the USA!
For Birding: To protect birdhouses and birdbaths from unwanted parasites apply Diatomaceous Earth to the post and surrounding ground of your feeders and birdhouses. Simply squeeze the center of the bottle. Dust a two foot perimeter around the post; do this once a month. Do Not put Diatomaceous Earth directly into the birdhouses or baths, our product is intended for external use around Birdhouses and baths as a protective barrier and repellant against parasites.
For Livestock: Work outdoors or in a well ventilated area. Lightly rub a dusting of Diatomaceous Earth into the fur/coat of your livestock to combat (dehydrate) unwanted parasites such as lice, ticks, mites and fleas.
Anti-Caking for Animal Feed: Mix Diatomaceous Earth with dry feed at a ratio of 2% Diatomaceous Earth to 98% dry feed (by weight of dry feed not volume). Do not exceed this 1:50 ratio, 1 part Diatomaceous Earth to 50 parts dry feed. For one (1) ton of feed mix twenty (20) Kg of Diatomaceous Earth (44lbs), to 2000lbs of dry feed.
We recommend wearing a mask when applying powder to prevent inhalation.
Like all Carefree products, Diatomaceous Earth is all natural and safe for wildlife and the environment.
