The Natural Effective and Hassle Free Way to Worm Your Horse Via It's Feed
When insects (ants, fleas, flies, cock-roaches to name but a few) come into contact with DE it ultimately kills them. The tiny particles of the sharp and hard DE stick to the insect, abrasively rub through and serrate their epi-cuticle and joints, absorb their bodily fluids and they die of dehydration. This process is purely mechanical not chemical. As such there is no build up or chemical residue, the insect cannot build up immunity or become tolerant to it. There is no plant or livestock with-holding period for human consumption.
DE is a desiccant. It absorbs moisture – some six times its own weight.
DE is death to bugs – every-time! However, the insect must come into contact with DE in order for it to work. As a result Fossil Shell Flour is used extensively overseas in domestic and commercial applications as a natural insecticide with OMRI organic registration.
Despite Fossil Shell Flour having a debilitating and eventual fatal effect on bugs and insects it does not harm its warm blooded host and has no negative impact on mammals.
Poultry, Pets and Livestock can be dusted or brushed in DE as a chemical free aid to rid themselves of external parasites such as fleas, ticks, mites and lice.
As well as external parasites it also has positive benefits on internal parasitic control for poultry, farm animals, domestic pets and equestrian applications. Fed daily the hard and sharp honeycombs of the DE lacerate internal worms to which they release their grip on the intestinal walls and get passed out with the rest of the waste.
In addition to this beneficial impact on internal parasites DE cleanses and almost ‘polishes’ the colon and intestinal passages at the same time. This polishing effect removes excess mucus and bad bacterial build-ups internally which may have occurred over time. This provides a greater ability to digest and absorb the feed nutrients being provided. Improved feed conversion, greater weight gains, improved immune systems and overall health are often on the list of positive changes noticed by farmers and users alike.
