DE36 is an easy-to-use granular form, rather than the air-borne, dusty white powder type. DE36 contains 36 trace minerals more than any other feed-grade DE in the North American continent. Use 40 to 80% less product, than ordinary diatomaceous earth due to DE36’s origins, type & make-up. We are talking tablespoon(s), rather than ounces. There is a lot of ordinary DE in the market place, our unique material contains a blend of Montmorillonite, a known binder of mycotoxins & protozoan. Research indicates mycotoxins are toxic chemicals produced by molds which are very poisonous to animals & humans prevalent in corn, hay, pastures, fescue & stored silage's often manifesting as scours, diarrhea & sometimes death.
Benefits of DE36
Diatomaceous Earth mode of action for insect & parasite control is strictly mechanical. The microscopically sharp edges contact the insect or parasite piercing their protective coating, dehydrate & die. Fly & other larvae are affected in the same way. DE is an excellent & totally natural control, with no indicating of mechanical or damage to internal tissue. It can be used as a dust for fleas, lice & other external pests by rubbing into the coat of the animal. Internal, external parasite & insect pest control will result in improvement in health, appearance, & behavior, as well as assimilation of feed, with improved weight gain & lowered feed costs.
Chemical mathematics currently prescribed by veterinarians have a number of drawbacks such as; cost, animal toxicity, milk & meat contamination, & parasitic chemical resistance. Waiting until an animal shows signs of parasitic infection, farmers using chemical treatments cannot avert the stress, weight loss & lethargy that result. Shortly after the initial chemical dosage, parasites begin immediate re-infestation. Finally acknowledging this phenomenon, chemical companies now prescribe rotating their wormers or feeding chemical wormers daily. Do you really want chemicals cruising through your animal's bloodstream at every possible moment? While one scoop of all natural DE36 added in the feed or loose minerals provides the advantages of safety, convenience & prevention at a reasonable cost.
Diatomaceous Earth is also used as an insecticide, due to its physical properties. The fine powder absorbs lipids from the waxy outer layer of insects' exoskeletons, causing them to dehydrate. Arthropods die as a result of the water pressure deficiency. This also works against gastropods and is commonly employed in gardening to defeat slugs. It is sometimes mixed with an attractant or other additives to increase its effectiveness. Food-grade DE is sometimes used to de-worm both animals and humans. It is most commonly used in lieu of boric acid, and can be used to help control and eventually eliminate a bug and insect infestations. This material has wide application for insect control.
