From the Author
From The Introduction
Toxic chemicals have reigned over the pesticide industry for more than a half-century with their products dominating retail shelves, in homes and literally everywhere, amounting to a multi-billion dollar a year industry for the chemical manufacturers. It's interesting to note that more than $1 billion per year is spent on just fleas and ticks alone, and still people complain these products do not work as bugs develop resistance to them.
Who can use this book? This practical guide for using Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is not only for consumers but also for health practitioners who prefer to guide their clients to focus on natural least-toxic alternatives to chemical pesticides. These how-to tips benefit a broad cross-section of the community: the unborn fetus, children, pregnant and lactating women, home owners, gardeners, pet owners, bird keepers; animal breeders; boarding kennel operators; veterinarians, and farmers. DE is used for cows, horses, alpachas, goats, pigs, sheep, poultry, ostriches, crops and orchards, granary and storage operators for nuts, grains, seeds, legumes, grain growers, pest control operators for schools, playgrounds parks, city and county public facilities including sewers, medical and food handling facilities, warehouses, factories, retirement and convalescent homes, hotels, and agricultural fairs.
Over 90 percent of American households use toxic synthetic chemical pesticides and household products. However, rising current public concern about the hazards of toxic chemicals is creating a healthy response. Increasingly larger numbers of consumers are waking up to the realization that blind faith in routine pesticide exposure and treatments is no longer healthy or acceptable--mistakenly, it was once considered the norm.
Alarmed consumers have become more aware and educated about the consequences of what harmful toxic chemical insecticides can do when absorbed through the skin, or inhaled, or ingested after contaminating carpets, floors, pet bedding, children's clothing, and areas used for playing, eating or sleeping, as well as our food supply and water. As a result, consumers have developed a healthier attitude, a new surge of interest and a steadily increasing demand for safer and non-toxic alternative solutions to replace harmful insecticides such as Diatomaceous Earth.

It wouldn't hardly be possible for her to list every parasite, pathogen, bacteria, virus and whatever else in one book, however there s enough information in this book for a "rational" thinking human to grab the ball and run with it. I have used it for ground hornets, bugs on the apple trees and a plumb tree, dust mites and many ants.
Ants take about 10 minutes before there isn't a movement. I have also used it for a parasite cleanse as I grew up on a farm with chickens, dogs, cats and cows. This is such an incredible product when one considers you can mix it with water and spray it from a hose fitting (for that purpose) and not have to breath the powder, which is not a good idea without a dust mask. My apple trees have never looked this good this time of year. If I see bugs on the tree I mix up another batch at a cost of very few pennies and spray the tree down. When it dries there is a white film on many leaves and apples. ----- no bugs ----- zero --- zilch....... Isn't that kewl to be able to spray something that dehydrates the bugs without worrying about getting it on you???
I suspect main stream will be fussing a lot when the word truly gets around.
The tips in this book are worth the price of this little book.
I intend to use it as instructed in my garden this year as well as in the house.
It seems to be effective against flies. The smaller insects avoid it.
I am also using it around my cats as this is the season as spring and summer arrive.
A liberal amount in the litter boxes has shown a little bit of a result already.
I would like to see more merchants carrying this book and the Earth locally.
Be careful because there are two different types. One is for swimming pool filters. The other is for around animals like your pets. Find "food quality" on the labels.
The book goes into how much to mix and how to mix it. That is what makes the book worthwhile.
