As natural as it comes! Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is actually the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled aquatic plants (diatoms). They become a multi-purpose, naturally occurring mineral which has been found to be safe to use for everything from supporting immune health, to nourishing plant soil, to household cleaning. Perma-Guard food-grade Diatomaceous Earth is a terrifically versatile product with multiple uses in the home, such as for non-toxic cleaning and freshening.

Product Notes: 

Aviva is your source for diatomaceous earth in Winnipeg.

Food grade Diatomaceous Earth is terrifically versatile. For household use, there are multiple applications such as: non-toxic cleaning, for use as a mild abrasive for polishing, as a desiccant to absorb moisture; and can safely deodorize refrigerators, garbage cans and litter boxes. Diatomaceous Earth may aid in pest prevention as a natural mechanical insecticide. For personal use, diatomaceous earth can be used as a facial mask or scrub, and can be added to toothpaste for extra polishing power. Of the 600 deposits in the U.S. only four are considered Food-Grade.

Diatomaceous Earth is known by a number of other names including diatomite, kieselguhr and fossil shell earth. DE works with a physical or mechanical action, not a chemical one so there is no danger of a reaction with other products or concerns about overdosing.  

A natural cleaner for your home: deodorizer for garbage cans, kitty litter boxes, vacuum cleaner bags, refrigerator, and footwear. Use also as a soft scrub cleanser or as silver polish.

Supporting the Immune System (for Livestock and Pets): Reported in scientific literature, DE absorbs and eliminates methyl mercury, E. Coli, endotoxins, viruses, drug residues, and some intestinal infections. Many other benefits of Silica for immune health include: contribution to formation of collagen for bones and connective tissue; stimulates cell metabolism and cell formation; inhibits the aging process in tissues; strengthens elasticity and firmness of the blood vessels and increases the elasticity of lung tissue; excellent for repairing damaged and thinning nails, hair, eyelashes, and skin; and reduces pain in sore joints. If used in animal feed, this DE anti-caking agent is to be mixed at a rate not to exceed 2% of the dry weight of the rations.

As a dewormer: DE should eliminate most worms within one week to 10 days when being fed daily. It doesn't affect the eggs, so you must feed for an additional 30 to 60 days to destroy newly hatched parasites. Mix with wet food or water once a day. For puppies and kittens, add to milk.

Dosage instructions for deworming:
Kittens: 1/2 teaspoon
Cats and Puppies: 1/2 - 1 teaspoon
Dogs under 35 lbs: 1 teaspoon
Dogs 35 - 50 lbs: 2 teaspoons
Dogs over 50 lbs: 1 tablespoon
Dogs over 100 lbs: 2 tablespoons
Poultry: Mix with feed at a 2% concentration

It is safe to increase dosage when deworming. To be most effective, do not miss days during treatment.

Although not marketed as an insecticide, many also report that Diatomaceous Earth can be used to help get rid of bed bugs in the home because of its desiccant properties. If bugs walk through and get covered with it, it destroys their waxy, protective outer coating, which would lead to their dehydration and death in about a week.
