Who is the expert answering these posts?
With all due respect, the answers to most of these concerns are the exact opposite of hundeds of sites that have tested DE in laboratories. They found the effects on humans and pets to be OK. Bedbugs can be gone and ingestion is OK to a degree. I see that this responder always gives an alternative product that they sell. What I suggest for those who have questionable concerns is to visit diamaceousearth.com. It has a Veterinarian on site and every question is answered without a biased sales pitch. If this post is not published, I have multiple others to post it. Not to slander My Own Pest Control ... but to merely viewers to read what is said, and make a sensible judgement call of their own. I have 11780 views on one of my sites, I believe that the Silicon level is 80-85%, according to every study I viewed. I found no distinction between "for food or not for food" from over 50 articles.
We have a team of experts that answer our thousands of Q&A posts at DoMyOwnPestControl. Regarding DE or any other product, we must recommend that products be used according to the product labels for safety and legality. The product label is what is legally approved for use, and that is what we must recommend for both the safety of our customers and the integrity of our company. We are not independent researchers or scientists in a laboratory and cannot make claims or recommendations that are not in accordance with the approved product labels. We hope you understand our policy and practice regarding this matter.
