What is First Saturday Lime?

First Saturday Lime is a super strong desiccant derived from 100% natural products.  It has the ability to dry out insects, eggs and larvae.  It is effective as a treatment for infestations, as well as a prevention. All of our elements are considered to be non-toxic. In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration has Affirmed our ingredients to be GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). We’ve taken the extra step to get our product tested to ensure we exceed purity requirements to deliver the most effective formula that’s safe for your family, gardens, ponds, pets and animals.

Why Should I Use First Saturday Lime?

First Saturday Lime is safer AND stronger than diatomaceous earth. First Saturday Lime is 100% non-toxic, 100% non-flammable, and has ZERO health hazards. While other products are caustic, or poisonous to humans and animals, First Saturday Lime is safe because it is insoluble and will not react with skin or moisture. We’ve taken extra, lengthy steps to make our formula fine (with a cake flour like consistency) so it’s easier to use, and more effective. With over 50 years in the agriculture business, our family is confident and competent in the best practices necessary to offer a natural pest repellent like this one. We welcome any suggestions or questions that might improve your experience so please do not hesitate to reach out to us by giving us a call or sending us a message via email.

How is this different than diatomaceous earth?

First Saturday Lime is STRONGER and SAFER than diatomaceous earth.  Diatomaceous earth (DE) is made from silica, which can cause respiratory inflammation in humans and animals.  It is essentially ground up shells that repel by “cutting” up insects.  First Saturday Lime has had the silica burned out of the product and has ZERO health hazards.  You will notice that our product is much heavier than DE.  This is because First Saturday Lime is highly concentrated.  Grab a bag and see for yourself.

If this stuff is so great, why have I not heard of it before?

You have never heard of this before, because this formula and the way it was made has never existed before.  We mine, manufacture, and refine our ingredients in our own facility.  We aren’t mixing and rebranding.  We are creating.  We made this, because we wanted it for our own homes and for our restaurant. 

Unfortunately, too many corporations are “all about the money.”  With money as their primary goal, they’re not too motivated to spend millions of dollars and years of research on a natural product with minimal financial returns.  Most First Saturday Lime is used by someone who has a friend or relative that has used it and gotten results. 

You would think that it would be just the opposite—that a natural, safe, non-chemical product that is inexpensive and has so many uses would be in every home in the country, but chemicals and drugs are where the big money is, so that is what gets promoted and used.

We put loved ones first and extend this to the way we do business. We love our customers and are passionate about using First Saturday Lime to protect and improve lives, gardens, farms, pets and animals now and for generations to come.
