Diatomaceous Earth for Fly Control

Crawling Insect Formula Diatomaceous Earth

Combining the use of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth and Crawling Insect Control diatomaceous earth is an excellent natural way to help control and eliminate flies. Many of us use it largely for fly control purposes. To use diatomaceous earth to lower and eliminate fly infestations, you need to do the following:

  1. Feed Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth daily to ALL of your animals - livestock - goats, chickens, guineas, cows, sheep, pigs, hogs, alpacas, llamas, horses and pets - dogs, cats, kittens, puppies, ferrets, parrots, canaries, etc. Since diatomaceous earth is a drying agent, it lowers manure odor which consequently makes your property less hospitable to flies and other pesky insects. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is also an excellent natural worming product.
  2. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for Flea ControlApply Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth on compost and manure piles regularly. By absorbing the moisture, Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth dries out the manure, which will lower odor, making it less fly friendly,; it will also work by dehydrating flies that come in contact with it and doesn't make good breeding grounds for flies to lay larvae.
  3. Keep Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth on the floors of barns, stalls, chicken and fowl coops, as well as nesting boxes to help reduce odor, moisture and flies.
  4. Keep Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth on fresh manure, wet spots, etc. daily.
  5. Apply Crawling Insect Control on moist soil areas around dog kennels.
  6. If you see breeding flies on manure or other areas, quickly apply Crawling Insect Control diatomaceous earth to the affected area, so they are at least lightly covered, if not heavily covered. This will swiftly dehydrate the tiny flies nearly instantly and the flies that fly away covered in DE will dehydrate within 24 to 72 hours.
  7. Be careful NOT to apply Crawling Insect Control diatomaceous earth to flowers and areas where beneficial insects (bees, lady bugs, praying mantis, etc.) frequent. These wonderful beneficial insects are becoming extinct already, due to traditional toxic pesticides.
  8. It is best to start Crawling Insect Control diatomaceous earth applications early in the fly season to increase the chances of having zero fly loads around your home and animals. Though, the application of Crawling Insect Control at any time during the fly/insect season will still produce noticeable results and is definitely better than never applying it at all.
  9. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth and Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth are natural powder form products, that work in a purely physical/mechanical manner, not chemical and thus has no chemical toxicity. Best yet, parasites don't build up a tolerance/immunity to its chemical reaction, so rotation of wormers or chemical insecticides is unnecessary, AND both products have NO odor.

Beneficial nematodes parasitize soil dwelling larvae, such as fleas, flies, grubs, etc. whereas all other flea/tick/fly control methods only control adult insects, they do not affect larvae/eggs. Beneficial nematodes are essential for complete elimination of many pesky insects as they stop the hatching egg cycle.

The bottom line goal is not just to treat fleas/ticks or dis-ease, but to effect a permanent CURE. Holistic methods can do this, whereas traditional man made medicines usually only effect a temporary relief from illness or dis-ease.

Healthy animals rarely succumb to disease, illness, or bad behaviors. When they do, they bounce back quicker than unhealthy animals. They get plenty of exercise, sunshine, love, tender loving care, natural rearing foods that are biologically appropriate to the specific animal, clean environments, mental exercise in the way of proper, appropriate training, and avoidance of toxins. They have jobs to keep them busy, whether watching the house while we are gone or making sure the couch or cats don't get eaten while we are away. They are part of our family. Often, they are better than a few humans in our immediate family and deserve the BEST possible health care we can give them.
