Family with Pets

For Our Best Friends, cats, dogs, rabbits, birds & many of God’s critters.

This top section of the pets and animals section is to provide a sumarization of how our Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth can help kill and prevent insects like fleas, ticks, and mites from infesting your precious pets.

PETS: Our best friends come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them from fleas and other crawling insects with Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous earth. Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas and other crawling insects are suspected.

CRAWLING INSECT CONTROL diatomaceous earth kills by physical action, not chemical.  After walking or crawling through the product the tiny diatoms polish off the insect’s waxy coating when they move.  When the waxy coating is finally polished through the product sucks the body fluids from the insect, rendering it dead.

Drs. Kim Bloomer & Jeannie Thomason, hosts of the online radio show, Animal Talk Naturally, have this to say about our Perm-Guard Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth:

Our work is based on natural, preventive care for animals, so of course we are always on the lookout for good, quality NATURAL products to help our clients and our listening audience that won’t break the bank.” We have long been proponents of Crawling Insect Control Diatomaceous Earth as a natural pest control for all animals. EARTHWORKS HEALTH has provided us the high quality and affordability in their Perma-Guard product that we look for in our own personal use as well as for our clients.

We thank Drs. Bloomer & Thomason for their kind words.
