Vancouver, WA, September 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Lumino Wellness, LLC announces that they have completed EPA registrations both federally and in all 50 states. This registration is for applying their product Diatomaceous Earth for Pets directly on animals to kill fleas and other insects.
Any product that claims to kill insects is by definition a pesticide and must be registered with the EPA. Lumino’s Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is codex rated food grade, making it safe for people, pets and the environment. However, EPA labeling regulations prevent them from using the term “food grade” on a pesticide label.
Lumino’s EPA Registered Diatomaceous Earth for Pets is an alternative for pet owners concerned about dousing their pets with potentially harmful chemicals. Massaged into the pet’s coat, it abrades the waxy shell of fleas, ticks and mites, causing them to die from dehydration. Because it works physically, not with neurotoxins, there is no risk of nerve damage, overdosing or insects developing an immunity to treatment.
A study from Gulf South Research Institute shows that Diatomaceous Earth “proved to be highly effective in eliminating eastern and western flea infestations.”
Recent news articles regarding the hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines levied by the California Department of Pesticides for selling unregistered pesticide pet products underscores the importance of these registrations. With Lumino DE there isn’t a concern about sales interruptions or fines from “red tagging”.
Lumino Wellness, LLC is privately held and headquartered in Vancouver, Washington. Lumino sells all-natural people and pet products through pet retailers, health food stores and markets.
