Question: What Is Diatomaceous Earth? D.E. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a natural product made of the fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms. D.E. easily crumbles to a fine powder and is used for many purposes from high end skin care products, to water purification, to farming & parasite/insect control. We can even use it to control internal parasites in our own bodies!

We use and sell “Food Grade” Diatomaceous Earth at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I personally use it to kill/control fleas, ticks & ants around my home and on my pets. I also use it to worm my dogs and cats! It’s even a great organic insect dust that I use in my vegetable garden! The good stuff, as pictured here,  is organic and food grade! Check out this video for more info –

Anytime I can turn someone on to a useful, organic product is a good day! If you haven’t tried it yourself, stop by and grab a shaker full – it’s inexpensive, organic and most importantly- It Works!

Have a great day!
