We love food grade diatomaceous earth because it assists in the removal of annoying flies in and around coops and runs. Add one cup of Diatomaceous Earth to our Pest Pistol and get to work on riding your flock, coop, nesting boxes, roosts - all of it - get rid of those bugs! Go ahead and add up to 2% of DE to your flocks feed and you'll have a simple method of natural internal cleansing. Remember, a little bit goes a long way.
For additional preventative measures lightly dust your chicken under its wings, breast area and fluffy bottom to remove lice, mites, fleas - the basic nasties! Check out The Nesting Box for tips and product usage instructions for our Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth.
Treats for Chickens only carries food grade Diatomaceous Earth - beware of the industrial grade sold at pool supply stores and at some pet stores as it is harmful.
Contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, or pesticides.
Non-Toxic, Humane & Eco-Friendly

I won't know if the DE is really food grade, or if it has fillers in it. BUT what I do know is that I trust Dawn and her company to only provide the best quality products.
And... the DE works great! :-)

get the pest pistol if you buy DE or you'll just make a mess. We bought three and gave one for a gift.
