Natural Animal Solutions® HerbaGuard Powder formulation has been created to provide an alternative to the use of stronger and stronger chemicals on our pet’s skin.
Natural Animal Solutions® HerbaGuard Powder formulation is based on a centuries-old remedy called Diatomaceous Earth. Diatomaceous Earth is ancient geological deposits of fossilized skeletons of microscopic organisms.
The geological deposits are broken down into tiny pieces to the microscopic level and are razor sharp for little nasties. To humans and pet’s it feels like a fine powder.
Being a powder based product is also HerbaGuard’s greatest asset. As well as being applied to pet’s skin, it can be applied to their bedding and any other common areas in which they reside. It can even be added to the wash to ensure that all areas have been covered. Absorba-cide aka Diatomaceous Earth
Absorba-Cide is an insecticide product. A natural product registered with the Australian Veterinary and Pesticides Authority for use against insect pests of stored grain and registered as an allowable input for organic farmers by the BFA.
Absorba-Cide kills insects by absorbing oils and waxes from the insect cuticle thus facilitating moisture loss and death by dehydration. In addition, the shards of silica in the material abrade the animal leading to its physical disintegration. Resistance is not likely since it is the physical and not chemical properties of Absorba-Cide that make it an effective insecticide. For more info see www.naturalanimalsolutions.com.au
