We recommend that Diatomaceous Earth replaces 10 - 15% of the feed given to poultry to enable the DE to work efficiently. When used in this quantity, the DE will reduce the amount of commercial feed required, improving production and saving on feed costs at the same time. Research has found that this ratio of DE to feed (15:85) will control any worms that are present in the stomach of the birds and will reduce the smell emitted by droppings.* The absence of any internal parasites as well as the improved overall health and well-being of the birds, can lead to measurable weight increases.
Repeat Customer27 April 2017I use the DE grade superfine as a way of managing ticks on my 1/2 acre property. The first year I moved here, they were terrible, my toddler and I were covered in dozens of bites from seed ticks. I got very sick as a result. I have been using this for the last two years, combined with running a flock of guinea fowl. This has been working well, and we've been able to avoid using harsh chemicals. I distribute the dust with a small leaf blower. Delivery is always prompt despite being semi rural, and customer service has been great.
