Please Note: Our supplier of Raw Love DE has changed, so the product is now being manufactured in a more natural, eco-friendly way. The new supplier sun-dries the product by hand, and then again by air, instead of using machines for the drying process.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a fine rock powder made up of tiny fossilised marine organisms known as diatoms. These tiny fossils are made of silica, which is safe for mammals but kills pests like ticks and fleas within 72 hours; DE does this by breaking down the insects’ exoskeletons and drying them out.
Many commercial tick and flea treatments can actually do more harm than good; packed with harsh synthetics, they can be toxic to you and your pets. Raw Love Diatomaceous Earth on the other hand, simply dries out fleas and ticks without affecting your beloved animals. The product is OMRI (Organic Material Review Institute) listed, and 100% safe.
You’ll find no harmful synthetic ingredients in Diatomaceous Earth; it can even be sprinkled around your home and garden to get rid of bed bugs, slugs and all sorts of unwelcome critters. This is multi-purpose natural pest control at its best.
Please Note: Our Diatomaceous Earth is food grade and non-calcined.
Warning: Users should avoid inhalation of this product as much as possible.
Helps eliminate most intestinal worms, including roundworms, pinworms and tapeworms.
Sprinkle Diatomaceous Earth over your pet’s food once daily for 30 days, then continue treatment only as needed.

Tick & Flea Powder:
For best results, treat all affected areas of the home (bedding, furniture, carpets etc.) at the same time you treat your pet for fleas. That way, you can ensure you’ll be eliminating larvae and eggs as well as the adult fleas and ticks.
- Apply to your pet’s coat once a week for a month, and then as needed.
- Use a brush or comb to gently work the powder into your pet’s fur, concentrating on problem areas.
- Be careful to avoid your pet’s eye area. Gloves are recommended.
- Dust your pet’s bedding and sleeping areas with Diatomaceous Earth as well.
- Dust any bedding, furniture, carpeting or other areas of the home. Leave for 24 hours before vacuuming.
- Kills adult fleas and ticks within 72 hours of contact.

37 out of 41 people would recommend this product11/02/2021, By RuthI sprinkled this stuff in my kitchen cupboards to get rid of cockroaches. It worked like a charm! I'm thrilled about this non-toxic solution.06/02/2021, By AbigailIt helped clear up a huge flea infestation and our dog's fur looks healthy. I used it in his food and on his fur as well as on the carpets and tiles.05/02/2021, By barefootmegzDisclaimer: I haven't used this for my pets, only for my garden.
It works a little... but it's certainly not a cure-all. Works especially well on aphids, snails, and stink bugs. Not so much locusts.
The diatomaceous earth actually draws water from the insects body, so you want to water your garden before application, so that it doesn't draw water from leaves and stems.
The only other problem is it's quite visible (grey/white) - a bit of an eye sore.
My recommendation: use this for areas with snails and stink bugs - on the ground only. Then use things like Neem oil for spraying on plants. Also, get a nice applicator. I use a shaker (the kind a barista might use for cocoa) to get a nice even application. Applying it by hand gets messy!18/10/2020, By NoeleenMust buy product. Works great to keep ants away from house. Great for in doggie food and works great as a powder on the animal coats.23/07/2020, By EdenThis has worked brilliantly for our furbaby. So glad we found a natural, raw, dog friendly alternative!01/07/2020, By AmberWell I eat this stuff by the teaspoons ????, my hair and nails grow like fire and my skin is smooth, soft and blemish free (the skin part could also be genetics and eating healthy foods... loads of fruit and veggies, legumes, seeds, pulses etc) My hair and nails though have never grown this fast ????.05/05/2020, By LisaA vet prescribed that my puppy go onto a daily flea pill, even though we've never seen a flea on him, so bought this instead. We also mix some into both the dogs' food in the evenings. Hoping this way we can avoid all chemical flea and worm medications. I also saw it's one of the products in Raw Love's food, which we love and use!19/03/2020, By moniqueI use this product on my chickens. In their bed/nest, in and around their coop as well in the area that they take dust baths. It helps keep fleas and ticks at bay. It looks like they are not scratching as much as they used too and it's safe for everyone.17/11/2019, By LorindiEasy to use. Much healthier product for your pet without harmful chemicals like other pet products.07/11/2019, By JLGDidn't really work for cats but ok on the garden. Just messy!12/10/2019, By EstéDid not work to get rid of my dogs ticks...03/10/2019, By NicoleLove that I don't have to worry about worms / ticks and fleas with my pets. Not a big fan of giving them the strong tablets/medication, this way I know that no harm is being done to them, they are being protected with a natural product19/07/2019, By SrutyyI like this product30/06/2019, By FeralDCatGreat product for detering and destroying ticks, fleas, worms and many other unwelcome creepy crawlies, in and around the home.20/06/2019, By TiffanyGreat product. I mix some into my dogs' food and she gobbles it up happily. So the taste must be very subtle if at all.16/06/2019, By NicolePut a little in pets food for flea free dogs26/05/2019, By MeganNice for my hens to have a dust bath. :)25/04/2019, By Anne-MarieI love this product and recommends it to all my friends! Works fantastic for ants and as it's pet safe, I use it around their food bowls. I've also used it a few times on them as well to keep them flea-free and it works. I also use it on my kitchen cupboards when needed (for ants again).09/03/2019, By CarolThe best product by far for ants. What I like the most is that it doesn't kill the ants but they just move on and that its also safe for my pets if they should eat it as its good also for deworming and fleas etc28/01/2019, By RobI didn't notice any change10/01/2019, By janniit was very easy to use for my doggo.09/01/2019, By CarolineThis product I reckon is highly effective. I wanted to get rid of mites, fleas, ticks and any other critters that were potentially making my dog itch. So I covered the bottom of his dog house with a thick layer of this powder, and let him lie in it. BIG MISTAKE! I think whatever was in the dog house tried to escape from the powder by climbing onto my dog, who soon was RIDDLED with small lumps (bites?) mainly on his back, neck and flanks. I don't believe that the powder caused this, as I have since repeatedly rubbed the powder into his coat without any ill effect, and without him getting ticks when we've been in the bush. So if you apply this powder to a pet bed or den, don't let your pet lie there while the powder is taking effect!
I would give this product a 5/5 if it came in a non-plastic container.
Lastly... for peace of mind... could the supplier and FtN please kindly disclose how and where the rock is obtained/extracted?09/12/2018, By LarissaI use this in the my cats' litter boxes - it absorbs moisture in the box and eliminates the smell. The cats also get it on their fur which helps with fleas.06/11/2018, By AdeleI sprinkled this on my carpets and left it there for a day before a thorough vacuum. We had a flea problem in our home due to the landlord's doggos coming for a regular visit, but after using this on my carpets together with Bioway Multi Insecticide the fleas are gone.14/10/2018, By AnitaI first reviewed it high however on the second time I noticed my cat has begun to lose fur rapidly. It was literally flying everywhere (and she is a shorthair). So I assumed maybe she is shedding. But after the third use I realized it is this product that is causing it. I also gave it to two friends who have cats and they gave me the same feedback. Didn't work!18/08/2018, By AnitaI try to stay away from using chemically produced products as much as possible, and when it comes to my much loved cat I only want to use the non-toxic, non-chemical products. I use this to rub it in cat's coat. Haven't seen any flees on her (and she is white) and she is an outdoor cat. The tub is BIG! Definitely enough for a few months.10/08/2018, By HeikeI choose that over the 3 months tablet from a Vet, because our dog had diarrhea for a week after the tablet. Now after 3 months where I needed to go again I used the powder and so far it seems to work. I don't see symtoms of scatching at all. Our cat got the same treatment and seems fine too. But I can't tell how it will be during the summer period. 1 point off is for the dirty feeling of her fur.01/08/2018, By LiliI bought this product in anticipation of all the positive feedback I had seen so far, however, I did encounter conflicting feedback too so am a bit apprehensive to use this until I can be fairly certain it is all it claims to be and definitely 100% safe for animals.28/05/2018, By ElineIt works great for pest control, and I love the fact that it is non toxic!03/05/2018, By LarisaJust started my dogs on the raw diet and I work this into their food - they don't seem to mind the taste and their coats don't itch when applied.26/04/2018, By gertgreat pest repellent26/03/2018, By MickeyExcellent ant repellent, I have had ant problems inside my kitchen for a while and this makes them vacate within a week.17/03/2018, By KomboKittenVERY thankful for this affordable and healthy preventive option! Probably one of my favorite buys from FTN!16/03/2018, By JoyceIt is safe and easy to apply indoors and ants avoid them like plague! Would be tricky to apply outdoors because if I apply it at a spot, the ants would re-route or the wind or rain would remove it. Best used to seal their entrances into the house (if they come in through cracks or holes in the wall) or perhaps sprinkle into their ant hole if you find their nests.14/03/2018, By ZukiswaReady to believe that my dog itch will be over01/02/2018, By ---What an easy to use product! No more cat scratches!29/01/2018, By JenI am very happy with this - I bought it as an ant repellent and it has worked very effectively within a few days. I have been struggling with ants inside for ages and I am so pleased to have found something that works that doesn't make me worry about growing another arm in the middle of the night.26/01/2018, By Largie BeeBrilliant product with so many uses, sad that so few know how many things you can use it for! Helps with worms for the "kiddies". keeps ticks and fleas under control, and its not toxic!23/01/2018, By NewgirlharperI bake my dogs biscuit treats and have started including this diatomaceous earth to the recipe. They love the biscuits and this is a wonderful natural and harmless way of dealing with internal parasites .22/01/2018, By TammyWorks like a bomb! Best ant repellent/killer I've used.
Highly effective and non-toxic07/12/2017, By Sadiyabought it to get rid of ants
