Perma Guard DE

Our Perma Guard Diatomaceous Earth has no expiration date!  It is already been fossilized as shell remains on the bottoms of fresh water lake beds thousands of years old.

Diatomaceous earth is the remains of microscopic one-celled plants called diatoms that lived in the oceans and lakes that once covered the western part of the US and other parts of the world.   Classified as a prehistoric algae, they are like the grass of the oceans, rivers and lakes and were fed upon by the oceans early grazers.

RECOMMENDED DAILY RATES: Kittens – 1/2 teaspoon
Cats – 1 teaspoon
Puppies – 1/2 to 1 tsp.
Dogs under 35 lbs. – 1 teaspoon
Dogs over 35 lbs. – 1 tablespoon
Dogs over 100 lbs. – 2 tablespoons

Chickens – 5% in feed
Goats & Sheep – 2% in grain
Horses – 1/2 to 1 cup in daily ration
*Humans – 1 to 2 heaping tablespoons daily

Most dose by mixing food grade diatomaceous earth in a glass of water before bed or first thing in the morning, well before breakfast, to allow diatomaceous earth time to move through and absorb toxins from one’s digestive tract without interfering or absorbing nutrients from foods or liquids.

EXTERNAL APPLICATIONS FOR LIVESTOCK, BARNS, COOPS, KENNELS, & LITTER BOXES:   

Use DE throughout the barn, coops, pastures, and grazing areas.  It keeps flies from laying eggs and developing.  It is excellent in the fowl coops – on the ground, in nesting/dusting boxes, brans and coops to prevent lice and mites.

Apply to kennel areas to help reduce odors, and especially if moist in the area to dry.

It will keep your kitty litter box dryer too

A small amount of food grade DE applied to livestock water keeps algae from growing on hot summer days.

Our Perma Guard is great for compost piles, to prevent breeding, control odors and keep the disease and toxins down!

HOME APPLICATIONS: 

If you are building a new home, or structure apply our DE on the inside of the walls, in the attic, and other areas.  Prevent any pesky critters from starting up.  Apply to baseboards, where floor meets wall, under appliances, inside cabinets and drawers, inside wall outlets, lightly in carpeting, and anywhere you might be having or at some point have an insect problem.

YARD, GARDEN, & LANDSCAPE APPLICATIONS:  

DE’s minerals are great for the yard and gardens.  DE has a pH of 8.0 so alkalizes the soil.

OUTDOOR CRITTERS AFFECTED:   Ants, carpenter ants,  fire ants, caterpillars, fleas, ticks, bed bugs, cockroaches, snails, spiders, termites, scorpions, silver fish, lice, mites, flies, centipedes, earwigs, slugs, aphids, Japanese beetles (grub stage), bed bugs, fruit flies, beetles, tree borers, stink bugs, squash vine borers, thrips, loopers, and much more!

MINERALS: 

Perma Guard diatomaceous earth contains 15 trace minerals including: calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc iron, phosphorus, selenium, and more

After a couple weeks use people constantly note shinier coats, better health, production, and even more positive attributes in their animals and self who are fed food grade diatomaceous earth regularly.

FLY CONTROL:   Sprinkle DE on livestock when flies are present. Dust barns, and coops, after animals have been through to reduce flies and breeding.  When you feed it to dogs, cats, and livestock it comes out in the manure and prevents flies from growing in the waste.

GRAIN STORAGE & PROTECTION:   Since it is “food grade”, makes no difference in taste or cooking quality, yet adds 15 trace minerals but will remove any bugs.

Suggested grain storage use:  1 cup of DE will protect 50 lb’s of grain — 5 cups.

DETOX & CLEANSING BENEFITS:   Food grade diatomaceous earth has been reported in scientific literature to absorb methyl mercury, e-coli, endotoxins, viruses (including poliovirus), organophosphate pesticide residues, drug resides, and more!  It detoxifies the body.

There are some features about Perma Guard that correspond with its ability as both a digestive aid, a colon cleanser and cholesterol reducer.  The honeycomb skeletal form of diatomaceous earth is found  to reveal a tendency to become filled and clogged with hard debris such as yucky intestinal scale.

Big and Black? Some Carpenter Ants Characteristics

 

“Big and black” are the two common most terms home and business owners use to describe Carpenter Ants, especially during the busy spring mating season this year.

 

Carpenter Ants find there ways around Whistler, Squamish and Pemberton´s forested areas by there heightened sense of sight and sense of smell, chemical tracks (pheromones) and even use visual reference marks. Causing great damage, these pesky riff-raff nibblers create pathways or congregate in similar areas digging galleries in wood, earth, insulation and other building material mostly due to heat provided from structures.  Isn´t that disturbing they congregate in areas that many of us call home or work?

 

After many years of study it is noticed, when looked at closely Carpenter Ants have hues of red, and brown and can congregate in the 50,000 range.



 

Carpenter Ants are also found behind bathroom tiles; around tubs, sinks, showers, and dishwashers; under roofing, in attic beams, and under sub-floor insulation; and in hollow spaces such as doors, curtain rods, and wall voids; and are about 1/4″ to 3/4″ in length.
