What are its benefits for humans?
Answer by ChewyDec 18, 2017
Food grade Diatomaceous Earth is a natural source of silica, promotes skin health, supports heart health and serves as an internal cleanser.

I’m trying DE to get rid of my cats tapeworms. And I was wondering can I add it to wet cat food or does it need to be dry food?
Answer by ChewyJul 17, 2018
The type of food you are giving your cat will affect the way to give it to them. For wet food, remove the food from the can and add it to the dish. Then add the appropriate dose of DE and mix in. Cats may be skeptical of their dry cat food if it has a white powder on it, that's why we have developed these 2 methods for adding DE to your cat's food. First, take note of the number of servings in the bag of cat food. The DE will absorb the scent of the cat food and be almost indistinguishable from it allowing your cat to enjoy their food.

I am looking for a way to spread to spread diatomaceous earth on the cats and their bedding. I was told their is a "puffer" that will spread it more evenly. Can you help with that?
Answer by ChewyOct 16, 2018
If you are concerned about a larger area, such as the garage, carpets, rugs, or furniture, you may want to target those areas by using Diatomaceous Earth's applicators like the Wilcox 3 Quart duster. This duster is not available on Chewy at this moment.

Can I put this outside in my yard to get rid of fleas, will it work if it rains a lot?
Answer by ChewyMar 07, 2018
While this is safe to use outdoors in small quantities, it may disrupt the ecological balance of your yard by killing good insects as well as parasites. Rain is only detrimental to DE if it physically washes it away. If the DE is in the soil of your garden, it probably won't go too far and will resume working for you once it dries out. If you covered your patio to ward off ants, then you'll probably need to reapply as it would wash away in the rain.

No more ants!!

We have a TNR feral cat that eats and sleeps in our shed. Every year we have an issue with ants and other bugs, not this year...not one ant! I sprinkled this stuff around her food bowl and water bowl and all over the floor, in the corners, along the doors. We also sprinkled in the areas she sleeps...and I have actually seen her rolling in it. I love that it's safe to use around her, even if she ingests it. I'll never be without it!

Diatomaceous Earth

This has had a remarkable effect on my 12 yr old cat from a dietary aspect. She does not go out, except on patio. She drinks more food, water, and has so much more energy. I just sprinkle a little in her dry food. Sometimes dogs with fleas come by the shrubs and sidewalk beside our patio, and that can cause fleas on patio. I have tried a little powder in her thick fur, and i think it has helped repel and kill fleas, but this may be ongoing in summertime. I also spray patio regularly.

No Noticable Change

We spread it throughout the front and backyard heavily and saw no noticeable change in the flee population. We have been trying everything even if it kills the grass. Dogs get bathed every other day and the dirt was spread and they still keep coming in with massive amounts of flees.

Excellent Fantastic Product

Excellent product if used with caution! I do not know what else to say except WOW! 20+ years of using! I’ve never ever ever ever had any health issues or problems with pets, humans or any other creature I care for by using this! Be careful not to cause dust in the air and do not use your vacuum cleaner because it will make the air dusty and possibly destroy the vacuum. In fact if you put it in your carpet do it lightly and don’t pick it up because than you’ve defeated the purpose. This needs to stay down to get on the insects. The ONLY thing I’ve been able to get rid of Asian beetles completely ever! I used it for the first time in February for these Asian beetles coming in the house and after putting it out in the cracks around my windows they completely disappeared! Next it works on every single insect I’ve ever tried to get rid of. It does become ineffective when wet but once it dries out it works again. Getting wet does not destroy it. I’ve only used 1 full bag and bought my 2nd a few months ago. I have 6 dogs, 3 cats, horses, goats and several dozen chickens and all the positive reviews are spot on. And yes I actually live in a very wooded country area, where most of the inhabitants are animals. The bag does bite big time but when you think about the product and on how fine the dust is, bags will never be the best. They need to put it in plastic containers, however that’ll make it more expensive. I have to admit I’ve never been brave enough to feed it to the dogs and cats but they say you can and that people can also ingest. I also use it for a dusting bath for the chickens best results ever!!!

Flea Control

I used this in my yard as a flea treatment. Wetted the ground, sprinkled the powder and let it dry. It is very drying to the hands, so use gloves.
