About Harris Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
Harris Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is composed of 100% ground freshwater DE, with no additives. The product is made of the naturally occuring fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of algae that forms in freshwater. These remains are ground up into a soft, fine white powder that carries many different uses. It's chemical free and completely safe to use around children and pets.
Harris Diatomaceous Earth is listed with the Organic Minerals Research Institute (OMRI) for organic use. It's sealed tight and packaged in a 10lb bag that can be resealed and easily reopened for ongoing usage. Included in the bag is a powder duster, allowing for easy application of a fine dusting of powder.
For every ten dollars in profit we receive for Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade, we have pledged to donate $1 to the Etowah Valley Humane Society (EVHS), a private non-profit organization that saves thousands of animals every year. Based in Cartersville, GA a short drive from the PF Harris manufacturing plant, EVHS aims to prevent cruelty, relieve suffering, and provide humane treatment for all animals in need. The organization actively works to eliminate root causes of suffering and acts as an educational resource for the community, with the main goal being to find a great home for animals in its custody. Below are a few of the impressive stats showing the impact EVHS has had on local animal lives in recent years:
- Rescued over 13,000 lives from Bartow County Animal Control since 2010
- Helped increase the number of live animals pulls from Bartow County Animal Control from 69/month to 207/month - a 300% increase
- Assisted in decreasing the Bartow County euthanasia rate six years in a row
Harris’ own Chief Financial Officer, Ed Brush, has been involved with the society for years. Seeing an opportunity to help a local organization doing so much good, PF Harris partnered with EVHS in an effort to combat animal cruelty and find deserving pets a loving home. We hope you will find value in our Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth while knowing that 10% of profits are going toward saving the lives of pets in Bartow County, Georgia.
Powder Duster Included
Use the Harris powder duster with extension nozzle for application of food grade diatomaceous earth. Once filled, screw the cap on tight and turn the duster upside down. Keep powder as dry as possible, as it will clump and not puff properly if wet. Also, be careful not to fill the duster to much when first starting out to prevent clogging.

About PF Harris
Problem solving has a long heritage at PF Harris. In 1924, two years after its founding, the company tackled the Calvin Coolidge White House, which had been overrun for years by roaches and water bugs. Harris’s product was so successful in eliminating the scourge that he was described on the front page of the Washington Times as a "vermin slayer" who has just fought a decisive, winning battle with a horde of cockroaches which infested the lower regions of the Executive Mansion.
Over the course of the next few months Harris took “his final feast” to dozens of government buildings, including the Senate Office Building, the Department of Justice, the Supreme Court and Walter Reed Hospital. Success followed success: Each superintendent of the various buildings was highly satisfied with the results.
The company today stays nimble enough to respond to changing market demands, leading the way in the development of numerous products, including natural insect repellents like Swamp Gator and Swamp Gnat which repel biting insects without using deet. Beyond the products it sells, Harris helps customers find easy and economical solutions to pest problems through helpful labeling, instructive videos and personal advice.
It’s a brand with a reliable past and an innovative future. PF Harris is America’s oldest EPA-registered company. With more than 55 products, the company provides solutions to treat everything from roaches and bed bugs to scorpions and stink bugs.
Top customer reviews
Amount 4 lbs is more than enough it should last you over a month. But it all depends on the size you are treating and what you are using it for.
Container. The bag it is in is strong and will not break easy. Sometimes when I purchased before I would get the DE in Ziplock bags because the seller was just selling out of a Huge bag that they had. Not like Harris which is a company that has customer service to help you with your issues and support that you might need. Especially if this is your first time using DE.
Please if you have questions just leave a comment. Unfortunately I have become a pro with DE due to a bedbug issue that just wont go away due to renting half a house and the neighbor on the other side won't address the issue. The will go away for 5-6 months not seeing one bug and then they build back up again. IF you are using this for bedbugs you need to use this and a spray even a bomb if it is bad enough for at the least a year every other day spraying until you don't see them anymore and then spray and dust twice a month for a year. Good luck. We were just clear for 5 months to find out our cats would go into the attic and come back down with a bug or two on them. We didn't treat the attic. If you have pets you need to dust their coats. Dogs are easy. Cats are easy too but you don't dust them directly just put it in their litter and when they scratch to cover up the dust will create a cloud big enough to cover the cat. Just put it in the litter every time you change it or every two days.
Please let me know if my video is not attached. So I can fix it. Sometimes Amazon doesn't attach all the submitted pics and vids.
Yes, it's messy, but it works. Rather than using the included puffer applicator - which I was concerned might result in a lot of DE suspended in air - I used a kitchen spice shaker. It probably resulted in a thicker layer of DE in the carpeting than was necessary, but worked fine. If you've never used DE before, it's as fine as powdered sugar or cornstarch. We applied it most heavily in my daughter's room, where kitty sleeps and where my daughter was being eaten by fleas, bite by tiny bite. We left it in the carpet and walked around in socks for 48 hrs. The day we vacuumed up the DE, we received and put down electric flea traps (the ones with light and sticky paper). Only 8 fleas have been counted in the two traps and they've been down for 5 days. So it seems that Diatomaceous Earth is the perfect first line of defense. I doubt that all the fleas would have made the pilgramage to the electric flea temple of doom.
The sequence, which wasn't intentional but one we'll follow if we're ever infested again... DAY 1) apply Diatomaceous Earth to carpets and floors, wipe down all other surfaces where eggs could be deposited, dose kitty with topical prescription flea treatment (takes approx 36 hrs to kill fleas eating her); DAY 2) comb out kitty (if kitty gives permission); DAY 3) vacuum up DE and dead fleas, take kitty to groomer for a bath, put down electric flea traps (probably won't find many, if any fleas, but good defense against reinfestation by hatching eggs that may have escaped the DE storm.
We are flea free and we have peace of mind knowing our home is safe for my kitten and kidden. Just be sure you have a good vacuum cleaner on hand.
