First Saturday Lime is non-flammable, and has no known health hazards as compared to diatomaceous earth. While other products are caustic, or poisonous to humans and animals, FSL is safe because it is insoluble and will not react with skin or moisture. They’ve taken extra, lengthy steps to make their formula fine (with a cake flour like consistency) so it’s easier to use, and more effective.
