 Product Description

Red Lake Earth - Granular. Food Grade.

A unique, naturally occurring mineral deposit which typically contains 65% Diatomaceous Earth

(skeletal remains of algae) and 35% Montmorillonite (calcium rich volcanic deposit).

Known benefits of using diatomaceous earth in feed:

  • Manure is drier with much less odor
  • Reduces the presence of intestinal parasites
  • Improves feed efficiency and animal health
  • Inhibits mold growth in stored feed.
  • Increase the amount of feed that is actually digested


Red Lake Earth, Diatomaceous Earth Powder, Supplement, may be used for horses, dogs, cats, sheep, goats, alpacas, dairy cows, beef cattle, and poultry (chickens, turkeys and other birds). You can use this product topically for help in fly control and darkling beetles. Use at a rate of 2% per total feed per day, so if you are feeding 100 lbs per day you would use 2 lbs of Red Lake Earth in/with the feed. If you are mixing a ton of feed, mix in 40 lbs. When putting Red Lake Earth topically onto feed you can usually get by with 2-3 tablespoons per day as a feeding supplement, per animal. When feeding FREE CHOICE- Place a bag into a large tub and your animals will eat what they need, but no more. Animals are pretty smart, they smell the minerals they need and what Diatomaceous Earth is and seek it.

Doses for specific animals-


  • 500 to 1000 lb- 1 tablespoon per day
  • 1100 to 1800 lb- 2 tablespoons per day
  • over 1800 lb- 3 tablespoons per day

Dogs and Cats-

  • If their weight is under 100 pounds, you can feed them 1/4 teaspoon per day.
  • Sprinkle Red Lake Earth in/under their beds and on them to help rid them of fleas & ticks.

Sheep and Goats-

  • 1/2 tablespoon per day

Dairy Cows, Beef Cattle, Bovine...

  • Feed approximately 1% of their daily ration or give it to them FREE CHOICE

Chickens, Turkeys and Other Birds-

  • You can use this product topically for help in fly control and darkling beetles.
  • When feeding to your birds, use at a rate of 2% per total feed per day, so if you are feeding 100 lb per day you would use 2 lb of Red Lake Earth in/with feed.

Other Animals- 1 teaspoon, when your animal is under 250 lb


Red Lake Earth, can be spread out over the surface area in your lawn and garden to help keep down the insects, (snail, slugs, crickets, FIRE ANTS, flies, and any other crawling insect that has an exoskeleton).

  • You can mix RLE with water (2-3 tablespoons per gallon of water) and spray it onto your plants and vegetables and when it dries it acts like sandpaper to the insects and keeps your plants and vegetables insect free.
  • When you sprinkle RLE around a fire ant hill, they take the product down into the hill tro the other ants and generally you will get rid of the ants within a couple of weeks.
  • Spread RLE around the base of your garden/plants and this will help keep the bugs from climbing up your plants and crop.

Important to emphasize, that RLE is a food grade Diatomaceous Earth blend and with Montmorillonige (volcanic ash). This means if you get some moldy/mildew laden feed, RLE can help dry it up.

"It is also excellent for dusting chicken coops to prevent flea and mite infestations."
