can I use it around birds

Asked by: Eddy
ONLY "FOOD GRADE" DIATOMACEOUS EARTH IS SAFE AROUND ANIMALS. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOOD GRADE THERE FORE ITS OBVIOUSLY NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE NEAR PETS OR ANIMALS. FOOD GRADE SHOULD BE PRINTED ON THE PACKAGING. EVEN THOUGH FOOD GRADE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH IS SAFE ITS RECOMMENDED TO WEAR A MASK OR SOMETHING COVERING YOUR MOUTH. DUE TO ITS LIKE DUST AND MAY IRRITATE YOUR THROAT.

Can I put this directly on an animal?

Dog and cat have fleas really bad
Asked by: Angelz
Only food grade is safe. I buy mine at the feed store. Do not breathe it. Safe for pets if it’s food grade. Silica is wonderful for strong bones and good elimination. Worm treatment for pets. Research this it’s pretty amazing.

4 lb. Diatomaceous Earth - Bed Bug, Flea, Ant, Crawling Insect Killer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 316.

For a more natural way to eliminate pests, this is a fairly effective option that is at a reasonable cost. Being a powder though, it can be a bit messy when being used inside the home and is affected by weather on the outside. This works by damaging the bug’s shell when they walk through the powder. With that being said, it doesn’t work as fast as other solutions as it can take a few days for the insects to find/walk through the powder and a few more days for them to dehydrate from the damage caused by the powder. It isn’t an immediate bug killer and it isn’t a perfect solution, but it is less toxic than other bug killing solutions, although you don’t want to accidently inhale the dust either. It isn’t a repellant either as it won’t necessarily keep bugs away, but slowly kills ones that hang out in the area that you put the product. I personally use this in places where I don’t want to spray a regular pest product as a way to eliminate those pests in that area. 4 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for bedbugs I have an apartment and next door neighbor had bed bugs so first my brother started getting bit we didn't know much about bedbugs so we didn't know what it was thout it was a spider. Then he woke up one night saw one crawling on him researched and figured it out they were bedbugs bought spray used it for months no bites for a month then I started getting bit sprayed again two months went by then somehow started getting bit again bought this powder put it through my entire apartment vacuumed it up and just for safe precautions I put a little throughout the cracks and along the wall in my entire apartment and doorway bedbugs can't fly only crawl its the only way they get to you so by me doing this it killed any hiding in the carpet because that's where they hide in cracks along the wall and in carpet or your mattress from my experience with them if there in your bed but i m happy to say its been 7 months me and my brother haven't gotten bit this stuff kills them and keeps them out I suggest this for anyone with bedbugs .

I had to step down and move into an apartment and we all know living in small quarters like apartments can bring bugs. I noticed dead roaches when I moved in letting me know the place was sprayed. But a few days in I was seeing live roaches which is not cool. I bought this product and a squeeze bottle and outline the rim of the inside of the apartment. Wall to wall, corner to corner, under the oven, under the sinks and the fridge. I let this set for weeks then vacuumed it up. I did leave the powder under the kitchen appliances just for preventive measures. I have been living in my apartment now for over 2 months and have not seen a bug!! I even applied this to the beds for preventive measure against bed bugs. I do have a cat and a young child living here and we have not had any health troubles with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALWAYS BUY THIS TO KILL BED BUGS This is the number one product to kill bed bugs. It does exactly what it says and as long as the powder is still in the places where you apply it, it continues to kill them. It even kills cockroaches. The only thing this won't kill is water roaches, but either than that, it's the best thing to buy especially for bed bugs. Ps: if you are trying to get rid of bed bugs ALWAYS buy this product along with Hot shot products. This product ONLY kills ADULT bed bugs but you need hot shot to kill the eggs and keep them away longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most EXCELLENT...BEST Pest Killer We had never had roaches to experience just how disgusting they are, until a leak from the neighbor's townhouse f flooded and destroyed our hardwood floors. With the water came a flood of roaches. One night, I woke to find hundreds in our kitchen. They're the most disgusting creatures, and they're the worst for your health. I don't do chemicals, as they are harmful just breathing, much worst coming in contact with. Ihad heard of this product from an aquaintence, so I bought it. I lined the edges of the floors in the kitchen and bathrooms, along with placing bait and roach motels. The roaches walk through it and don't know what's hit them. It takes a little time, but they eventuality go off and die. You have to keep it out for awhile to get the babies that hatch, but it beats using chemicals from exterminators.

I saw a few spiders inside the house but by the time I saw them they are dizzy and could not even move . I just sprayed them with Raid and they were done. Pretty decent. It is a bit messy but works overall. I do see some ants so it has not completely gotten rid of them, but don't see as many as before. Will continue to treat the house for a few more months and I think it should do the job.

Let’s just say I haven’t been bitten anymore and haven’t saw any besides the dead ones I vacuumed off my mattress! Can’t say how long because I put it down and didn’t go back into that room for a week lol but very satisfied
