Customer Questions & Answers

Is this edible for pets?

I'm scared my cats will lick it. What will happen? What about walking on it? What if it got breathed in accidently? Help!
Asked by: catsanddogs1
Due to different pets and different illnesses, I would check with your personal vet before allowing the animals to fully ingest this. I have two cats and they do sometimes walk through the powder sometimes, but the ratio is low. I do not allow them to get covered in it. Better to be safe and check with the vet. Also the food grade is slightly safer then any other version of the DE. I walk on it, but again, I try not to get covered in it. I have areas under my couches that are more heavily saturated, as opposed to a spot on my rug that me and my animals walk through regularly. I have asthma and I am ok with laying this stuff down, I do use some kind of breathing mask, last time a double folded face cloth soaked in cool water, dust cant get through. I also vented my place very good, with a fan on high blowing outward in my window. Best of luck to you.

Asked by: april
Yes, as long as you get "food grade." Type in diatomaceous earth in search., a selection" how to clean up diatomaceous earth" and will explain how to use it.

Is this product approved by the FDA like other food grade for human consumption

Asked by: Susie
No. It is not. Do not ingest this. St Gabriel, walmart and other retailers sell smaller, usually a little more costly bags, clearly labeled FOOD GRADE. This particular bag IS NOT food grade!

Can I use on my dogs

Asked by: Moe
Don't know about this brand but Food Grade DE is safe for dogs. I have been feeding it to mine for over a year. They have been worm and flea free and nails and coat are beautiful. I have told my vet what I'm doing and she says to keep doing what I'm doing because they are in perfect health. I don't use any other worming or flea treatments other than heartworm treatments for them.

Insect Dust 4.4 lb. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth Indoor/Outdoor Crawling Insect Killer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Cats! I bought this for flea control after witnessing one of my rescue cats have a terrible reaction to conventional, pesticide based, flea/tick treatment. So far it seems to be working wonders! The cats don't mind it at all because there's no smell and they don't feel it being applied. I haven't seen any fleas since I started "dusting" them and they are definitely scratching/biting themselves less. It's a little messy to work with, but it's certainly a lot better than taking chances with their precious little lives! I urge all pet owners to read up on diatomaceous earth as flea treatment and give it a might just save a life!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mislabeled I ordered this item in the store with the help of a home depot associate. I personally chose this one from the site myself, because online it was labeled as food-grade. When the item arrived, I quickly realized it was in fact, NOT food-grade, and therefore I could not use it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong product It's advertised as food grade. It is not food grade . Warning label on the back of package said harmful to humans and domestic animals!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic... Well I brought this because of the scare of getting a infestation of bed bugs. I don't have them and I don't want them. So I cleaned the house and put this powder down everywhere. Cracks, crevices, bed, rail, around the wheels, in corners of drawers. Too my surprise it kills roaches. Came home from work & all around the baseboards were DEAD roaches. Its been almost two weeks and still no sight of no roaches & no bed bugs. I'm gonna put this powder down once a month to avoid and kind of pests. I used a empty baby powder bottle, a paint brush, and a jar with a spout on it to help me put the powder in the different places. Use a mask

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diatomaceous Earth Organic Product works great! I am so satisfied with this product. I had an overnight bed-bug infestation after I acquired a new house guest. The bed bugs were like little nasty vampires sucking our blood in the wee hours of the night. I got sooooo tired of losing sleep and being on the verge on insanity. I spent hundreds of dollars on extermination fees and do it yourself bed bug kits…nothing seemed to work until I tried this wonderful product. I placed this product everywhere in my house, the couches, baseboards and I even gave some to my neighbors since we all stay in the same condo unit. I have not seen a bed bug in my home in weeks.

I ordered this online because there appeared to be no availability on the shelf at the store. There was a similar item that I purchased from the store. Four tenths of a pound of St. Gabriel's purchased online costs significantly more than the instore purchase costs. For my requirements, food grade is not an issue. I have used it three times in the last couple of weeks, along with an electric flea trap. It has helped to control fleas indoors. As economical as the product is, it has been repetitiously applied outdoors after each rain event. The only applicator was online only in a quantity of eighteen! To sell the product without selling the duster was at least inconvenient until it was purchased the JT Eaton product from a local do-it-yourself pest control retailer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insects don't stand a chance I have this brand and it's lasted me a few years. It goes a long way. I sprinkle it around the house inside and out, and in the garden on the foliage and on the ground. You do have to reapply it outside if it rains. I use an empty spice container to apply. Apply lightly and slowly. It is a powdery dust.
