"Diatomaceous earth really works to eliminate fleas. I put it in the dirt under the house where she sleeps and on the dog as well. I feel confident that I'm not poisoning my dog! We rarely see a flea in an area where everyone's dog has them."

Kathy Plack

These all-natural, biodegradable Household Insecticides and Garden and Plant Insecticides (5 oz) are made from three active ingredients: Diatomaceous Earth (food-grade and non-toxic), Pyrethrum and Piperonyl Butoxide. These ingredients make Perma-Guard insecticides a highly effective alternative that kills bugs without endangering people, animals or plants.
Diatomaceous earth comes from fossilized deposits of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called Diatoms. The Diatom's hard shell is largely Silicon Dioxide (less than 1% crystalline silica), along with a smattering of trace minerals. Insects have only a body cavity that holds in their body fluids. If they lose as much as 10% of these fluids, they die from dehydration. The sharp edges and pores of the Diatomaceous earth helps them to lose the vital 10% or more by puncturing through their waxy coating and absorbing the liquid, speeding the time of the insects death.
Pyrethrum is a natural vegetable extract from a variety of Chrysanthemum flowers. It is deadly to insects and other "cold-blooded" life. Piperonyl Butoxide is another vegetable extract first discovered in Sassafras and pepper plants and is used as a synergist to magnify the effects of the Pyrethrum.
When using these products, make sure you get good coverage, so insects are sure to come in contact with it. Dust applicators are best for this purpose. It can also be mixed with water and sprayed with any liquid spray equipment. Also available is a 1 lb refill for the Household insecticide.

NOTE: It would take ingesting 23 pounds of this product to kill a 30 pound child. Pyrethrum breaks down intoharmless substances and is eliminated from the body.
