100% pure diatomaceous earth from fresh water. Also known as Fossil Meal, Food TD is a safe, non-toxic form of insect control. Diatomite is the fossilized remains of a microscopic single-celled aquatic plant known as the diatom (algae). A crystalline shell protects these tiny organisms. When organisms die, the shells pile up on the bottom of oceans and lakes to form deposits. These deposits are then mined from the seabed or ground or processed for a variety of uses.
When fossil flour is used in agriculture, it must be ground until it is completely amorphous. This means that it will no longer have any crystalline form that can cause damage to larger organisms. Instead, it contains microscopic sharp walls, which can easily bind on the backs and hairs of small insects. It pushes its way through their protective wax, and eventually the insect becomes so dehydrated that it dies.
Food Diatomaceous Earth contains 15 beneficial trace minerals and eliminates roundworms, roundworms, pinworms and hookworms within 7 days of daily consumption. Give your pet TD for a minimum of 30 days to ensure that any developing worms are destroyed.
TD has no chemical toxicity and is safe for internal use. This is an extremely effective way to eliminate pests without using chemical agents. Although it is 99.5% amorphous silica, TD should not be inhaled.
