The compound is formulated from Azadirachta indica, Achillea millefolium and diatom flour.
It acts in four ways to rid animals, garden and buildings of flies,
fleas, lice, ticks, mites, spiders, beetles, ants and more. The neem
tree contains a chemical, azadirachtin. It is an active insecticide, a
repellent and a potent-antifeedant and ecdysis inhibitory compound. Neem
herb has found broad use as a wound healing agent and has reported
antimicrobial properties. Yarrow is a repellent to many parasites and
diatom flour desiccates many insects.
The combination of these processed herbs is a very effective external
parasite dust which also presents disinfectant and healing properties
to lesions and other irritations secondary to infestation. The dust rids
mammals of parasites and a teaspoon or two on your window sash or sill
eliminates flies, beatles and other bugs in home or office very
effectively. It is safe for use in your garden as well.
The manner of application which has yielded success is to sprinkle
the dust from head to tail along the spine and brush against the hair to
bring the dust into contact with the skin. This should be done under
dry conditions. One to two ounces is enough to dust a large herbivore
(e.g. a horse). The dust should cover the saddle to midlateral.
Even engorged ticks have disappeared by the next day post dusting.
The ingredients singly are nonmutagenic and nontoxic to mammals, fish
and birds. It is expected that in compound they also are harmless in the
form and concentration in this product.
