WHAT IS DIATOMACEOUS EARTH?
Grandpa’s Diatomaceous earth is fossilized Diatoms, a type of algae. Diatoms live for about a week before settling on the sea floor, where they become a siliceous sedimentary rock.
Diatomaceous Earth is a natural pesticide, bed bug killer, and de-worming agent – the effectiveness of which is a result of its high porosity.
Why is Diatomaceous Earth so Important?
Grandpa’s Diatomaceous Earth is a natural insecticide that works through mechanical means. As DE absorbs water when it attaches itself to the exoskeletons of insects, they die as a result of water pressure deficiency. This same desiccant effect makes Grandpa’s Diatomaceous Earth effective at stopping mold from appearing in the feed.
The animal feed contains wet additives such as molasses that cause the particles to become “sticky”. It forms clumps that not only make the feed hard to pour but is also a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Grandpa’s Diatomaceous Earth, when mixed into the feed, coats each particle making feed easier to pour and absorbing the moisture that mold needs to grow. No mold means less wasted feed. And this means more value from each dollar spent on feed.
Diatomaceous is very good for your Skin, Pets, Gardening, Health.
