Product Description

CELATOM AFA Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is the purest Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth we have found; based on each companies published analysis. MN-51/AFA (Animal Feed Additive) is a CODEX Food-Grade natural diatomaceous earth (D.E.) product composed of microscopic diatoms that were deposited in ancient lake beds. These diatoms are made of amorphous silica in complex lacy shapes, which promotes a high absorption capacity and makes AFA an ideal product for anti-caking applications in grain and animal feed storage. AFA is non-toxic and safe for the environment. The benefits of D.E. as a natural insecticide for grain storage, garden, and animal use are well-established in practice. Natural D.E. powders have been used by farmers for centuries. With the increased popularity of organic and sustainable farming methods, more and more livestock and pet owners are re-discovering the natural benefits of D.E. as an animal feed additive. We cannot make claims about internal therapeutic benefits because of the prohibitive expense of the clinical studies that would be required by the government. However, many livestock and pet owners that have used AFA over the long term tell us they have experienced: When insects come in contact with diatomaceous earth, the D.E. absorbs their protective wax coating and their shells are damaged by the glassy diatoms. This combination causes them to die by dehydration. There is no survival and no built-up immunity as there is with chemical insecticides. D.E. also does not break down as chemicals do, and the more that it is used, the more insects feel unwelcome in the area.

Important Information

Ingredients
100% Pure Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth

Directions
Feed about 2% of the weight of the regular feed rations over several weeks for noticeable results. More will not be harmful. MN-51/AFA is useful around the house for control of roaches, silverfish, ants, bedbugs, flies, fleas, crickets, and many other insects. They can be applied as a dry dust or mixed with water at the rate of 2 oz. per quart (60 g per liter) and sprayed as a liquid. Application To be effective, MN-51/AFA need to be applied as a physical barrier that insects must crawl across to be damaged. Apply dust liberally around cracks and crevices, under stoves and refrigerators, and in likely hiding places. Be sure to treat around sinks and drain pipes. Lightly dust areas around windowsills, doors and other places where pests may enter. Rugs and carpets: Apply a thin layer of D.E. all over rugs and carpets to control fleas. Rake the D.E. into the fibers and leave overnight. When cleaning, do not make a special effort to remove the dust in the rug. It will continue to kill live fleas, repel others, and will deodorize the carpet. For even better control of flies and roaches, liberally dust the outside walls of the house, shrubbery, and outbuildings (such as barns, stables, kennels or corrals). Repeat if needed.

I have helped get rid of bed bugs, fleas, ants, roaches, parasites and more with diatomaceous earth.

I mix it with pet foods because it is a good pet wormer, but I haven't used it long enough to see a difference yet, I know I will.

This is a great way to help control garden pests and fleas on your pets without using harmful, toxic chemicals.

Having realized in horror that I had a mild bedbug infestation confined to my bedroom, I researched for the most effective, natural way of getting rid of them (I was not in the market to spend hundreds, let alone thousands, of dollars on chemical toxins that might not work that well). This led me to this product, step one of my strategy. Step two required learning as much as possible about this pest. So here's how I got rid of them:

1- Set my alarm clock to 2:30 AM. Woke up at this hour to find that's about feed time for this critters (averaging between 1:30 and 3:30 AM), so I was able to spot the hiding places from where they came out to get their meal. Does not matter if you turn the light on, they still come out. I did this for a whole month to monitor how many kept coming out throughout the DE powder treatment.

2- Using a duster, I applied as thin as possible a layer of DE powder around and underneath my bed frame, as well as the trail I was able to track from the hiding places towards my bed. Basically half my room. I also used a bit of the dust on the rest of the floor and any of the horizontal surfaces in it, but mainly the area around the bed and the hiding spots.

3- Since it was, thankfully, the early summer days, I was able to sleep without covers throughout the weeks in which I did the treatment. All bed covers, blankets, pillow cases and the like were sealed in bags in which I also applied the dust. I kept those tightly sealed for a good 3 months.

4- By the second week, I had come across and killed close to 23 of the suckers, but began seeing some dried out remains of what looked like dead bedbugs, but these could also simply be shed skins from molting, so I still did not remove the dust. I was no longer being bitten.

I decided to give this a try for flea control in the house and on the pets since I was looking for something nontoxic, more natural than chemical soup pesticides.

First, the BAD: This is VERY VERY messy and hard to use if you don't have a duster tool, which I don't. I ended up with clumps of the powder everywhere and when I tried to brush it into my carpet I was left with a dust cloud in the house for several hours. I decided to dust the dogs while outside, which worked much better, but every time anyone petted/played with them, a little dust "poof" would appear (reminding me of Pigpen from Peanuts, lol). Also, don't expect this to work quickly for any type of bug control, as it can take a few weeks before you start to see some results.

Now, the GOOD: Even though it's not instant flea control, it seemed to work relatively well once you get into a regular routine maintenance of dusting the powder on and regular vacuuming (to pick up the dead buggers; daily for me since I have lots of dog hair to deal with also). I live in a very HEAVILY wooded area and my dogs are constantly picking up critters and bringing them home so I have to be very diligent with my flea control, otherwise I'd be constantly infested and going crazy.

Summary: If you have the patience and determination to carry out the maintenance involved with using this, then it's worth it. It would probably work faster and better than it does for me if you live in a "normal" suburban neighborhood and not have to deal with all of nature's insect army at your doorstep. If you do decide to give it a try, definitely invest in a duster tool to make things a lot easier on yourself.

I ordered this from the seller about a year ago and I had one of the worst cock roach infestations that I had ever seen in my life. It was so bad that I could see them at night crawling on the inside of the TV screen, I had to throw out 2 coffee pots because they were breeding inside parts I couldn't even get to in order to clean along with a wooden knife block in the kitchen. I had to throw out an alarm clock because their were dead roaches covering the LED numbers so that you couldn't make out what time it was.

We had purchased those space saver bags for clothing and were storing about 6 of them under a futon in the living room. We have hard wood flooring and when I went to move the bags in order to sweep the floor about 10,000 of them scattered in every direction of the apartment. At this point I had tried bombing the house several times with an overkill on the amount of bombs needed. The final time I did it I had 4 bombs in the kitchen 2 in the bathroom and three in each of the 2 bedrooms. I had an exterminator over to the house on multiple occasions spraying poison all over the house about 3 times per month and nothing was even slowing them down. They were breeding faster than we could kill them.

It got to the point were we even had to throw out the dishwasher as they were breeding on top and under it as well as inside of it. I was to the point that I just wanted to move the hell out of this apartment all together but I couldn't afford too. I tried boric acid in all the heating vents and in various places which seemed to have absolutely no effect what so ever. In fact I can't say that I found one dead bug from using that crap. I was getting very very fed up and wanted to shoot the landlord for not dealing with the problem.
