From the diatomaceous earth experts, EP Naturals. Designed specifically for use on dogs and cats; aids in the control of fleas, ticks, lice and mites.

Physically abrades and absorbs exterior waxy cuticle layer of insect, resulting in rapid death by dehydration. Independent lab tests show higher efficacy rate vs. other DE insecticide brands. Unique EPA certification for domestic animal applications. Lightweight, easy-to-use shaker-top container with handle.
Contains 85% silicon dioxide from diatomaceous earth, 10% other elemental oxides and 5% moisture.
