LEWISVILLE, Idaho, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- On Tuesday DiatomaceousEarth.com launched its learning center where people can read how-to articles and interact with the DE community by posting comments and questions on DiatomaceousEarth.com's Facebook page. Since diatomaceous earth has many unique functions, mainly as a pesticide, site users have the opportunity to read numerous articles on the subject. The Diatomaceous Earth learning center has six categories that cover areas and ways DE can be used.
Throughout the learning center, users will find instructional videos, articles and a blog detailing each of these uses. Examples include dusting dogs with DE to rid them of fleas or applying DE to the garden to protect it against slugs or aphids. In each article, readers will find step-by-step instructions on effective application.
Kris Stowell, the CEO at DiatomaceousEarth.com, explains this is the main reason behind creating the learning center.
"We created DiatomaceousEarth.com to help people get the most out of their purchase. It typically shows up in a bag with no instructions. The learning center has numerous ways you can use it as a pesticide, deodorizer, cleaning agent or feed additive," Stowell says.
It is not just the creators of the website who want to teach others, but past customers want to have a say as well. The Facebook community has rallied around the site as a common place to find others who prefer to go green, moving away from chemical pesticides.
Starting from DiatomaceousEarth.com's launch on April 7, 2014 the Facebook community has grown from 3,500 likes to over 28,000 likes.
"We wanted to build the largest community for people to share tips and advice on how to use DE. There is an online community and forum, so you can ask the experts and the community," Stowell adds.
The experts often turn to the DE community for help. When a customer had problems with squirrels bringing ticks into her yard, DiatomaceousEarth.com asked their followers on Facebook for the answer.
Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring substance. It is composed of the fossils of diatoms. Over thousands of years these fossils accumulate at the bottom of lakebeds. These deposits build up and can eventually be mined. Other industries use DE in products like toothpaste and skin care products.
Stowell gives a final benefit, "DE has an unlimited shelf life as long as it's kept dry, so this is a great product to have on hand for any situation."
