Our first blog post was about ticks and how this spring means more ticks and offered tips on how to combat them. If you think this is going to be a bad tick season, you can imagine how bad the insects will be this spring…particularly fleas. While there are many products out there for this problem, we suggest one all-natural solution that kills a whole range of insects using a unique formula.
St. Gabriel's Organics: Diatomaceous Earth
Also known as "insect dust," Diatomaceous Earth controls and kills ants, ticks, fleas, cockroaches, earwigs, palmetto bugs and soft body crawling insects. In fact, this product is known for its particular way of dehydrating insects by cutting into their exoskeletons and killing them. What’s in Diatomaceous Earth? Diatomaceous Earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. This combined with a very low percentage (less than one percent) of crystalline silica makes this formula safe for both pets, humans and the environment. In fact, it's approved as food grade and is not harmful if swallowed.
What's special about Diatomaceous Earth is where you can spread it. Since it’s not harmful to pets, you can rub it on them for flea control, or if your trying to repel any insects you can spread the insect dust around environments you don't want excess insects, such as your garden or bed.
Our staff stands by this product as many of us have used this for our own pets and animals. If you'd like to learn more about this product, feel free to contact Allie's (401-294-9121) or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
