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.

19 out of 21 people would recommend this product10/01/2019, 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.
