One Happy Homeowner
July 15, 2013
I had an invasion of little ants on my kitchen cabinets around the sink area. I kept killing them with liquid dish soap and they kept coming. Didn't want too but out of desperation I sprinkled Sevin 5 insect Dust over the area but it didn't completely stop them and who likes poison on their cabinets? Just one thin application of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth around the back of the sink and they were gone and haven't been back. I may not be able to pronounce it but it works great.

Very happy I found this company. The product was shipped fast (free), and the price was reasonable. What else can you ask for. I used the earth for fleas on my dog and cat, and it was very helpful.

This is a great product that I dusted on my garage floor. Fleas were mostly gone in two days. All residuals gone in four. I highly recommend this product even for careful pet application (protect animal's face during dusting.)
Great for safe use

November 29, 2012David from Forest Park, Illinois asked:
QDoes this brand of diatomaceous earth also kill bed bugs?
AYes. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth will kill bedbugs. Diatomaceous Earth should not be the only product used in the fight against bed bugs as it does not kill quick enough. For best results, use Bedlam or Bedlam Plus in addition to the dust product.
July 24, 2013Harry from Castro Valley, Ca asked:
QWe have fleas inside our home, do we have to spread Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth all over the carpets?
We have spread it all over the carpets and the dust is all over the place because we kick it up when walking through the house. Do we have to vacuum up the old before applying new? Our holistic doctor said to apply it once a week for 4 weeks. We are still getting bites how do we stop the fleas?
AYou can apply Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth under carpet. We recommend to go ahead and vaccum the carpets. This help to bring the fleas up to the surface and in contact with the D.E. You want to stick with applcaitions to, cracks and crevices; behind and beneath appliances, cabinets, and garbage areas; around sewer pipes, drains, foundations, and windows; in attics and basements; on patios; along baseboards; under carpeting; in and around pet bedding and sleeping quarters. You can use Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR inside your home. please check out our video How to Get Rid of Fleas.
March 24, 2013Ruth from Boca Raton, Florida asked:
QIf Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is used before rain, will it be useless?
AFood Grade Diatomaceous Earth can be washed away if it is applied in open areas and it rains outdoors. Most folks choose to apply Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth directly in cracks and crevices around doors, windows, vents, places where cables, pipes and wire enter through the structure rather than all over the ground. This keeps the product protected and it keeps the product where pests are known to try and gain entrance into your home.
August 1, 2013Stephanie from Ny asked:
QCan you use this product directly on an animal?
I happen to have a flea frenzy in my house at the moment. I'm solving the problem house wise but animal wise there's still a couple here and there and they don't seem to be going away, even with flea treatments. I was wondering if this product can be used on an animal specifically a cat to get rid of fleas?
ASt. Gabriel Organic INSECT DUST - Diatomaceous Earth is a FOOD GRADE product but it is not labeled to be applied to pets. We do several other products that can be used on cats. We offer products like Petcor and Prefurred Plus for cats. Petcor Flea Spray contains Precor IGR, an insect growth regulator that targets fleas in the egg and larval stages of development.
February 1, 2014Pete from San Antonio, Tx asked:
QWhat is the health risk to a human if the product were to be inhaled? Not purposefully, of course, as with a straw and a mirror, but rather accidentally because the product got airborne.
AFood Grade Diatomaceous Earth should be applied lightly and uniformly. There should not be a large amount of dust in the air. The manufacturer states that Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is not for ingestion. We recommend to contact St. Gabriel Organics (800) 801-0061 if a large amount has been inhaled.
