Excellent product and advice

4 April 2024
So good to get excellent product together with old fashioned service. I had a very informative and friendly conversation about the many ways I could use DE with my chickens, garden etc. I learnt a lot; thank you. My order arrived very promptly and I found, for me at least, it works out much cheaper to buy larger bag and have it couriered rather than smaller bags more often with Australia Post.

I had a problem with dog flees & termites recently & wanted a natural way of removing them. Whilst I still had to treat my dogs with another product, I treated the ground with diatomaceous earth…..JOB DONE!! My order arrived well packaged & earlier than I expected. I’m very happy with the service & will use them again.

Foodgrade DE

I purchased DE for treating my cats' flea problem without using drugs. Only started to apply the DE around a week ago so have not seen the full extent of its effect but I am willing to wait. Good and efficient service. My order arrived in no time.
