What is Diatomaceous Earth – DE?
DE is a very fine powder created from the shells of millions of microscopic creatures called diatoms. Diatoms absorb silicates from the water to create the shells. When they die they sink to the sea bed. Over time sea levels change and layers of DE are exposed and mined.
How does DE work?
DE kills mites, ticks, fleas etc by absorbing the waxy layer which these creatures produce on their outer layers, drying them out and killing them

DE can be applied to your dog externally for fleas, ticks, mites etc. To apply, sprinkle the DE over your dog and then using your hands rub the powder in ensuring it reaches the skin surface.
