 D.E. and herps

While sifting around through the basement i found a bucket of diatomaceous earth. What it basically is is the ground up shells of diatoms that can dehydrate and cut up parasites. Reading around has given many good answers on the food grade diatomaceous earth and other pets like dogs, cats and chickens. On the reptile side everyone is hesitant on the fact of what if it dehydrated the animal. However nobody dared to discuss dosage. Would coating a few feeder insects in food grade diatomaceous earth and coating the rest in calcium powder once a week be good for killing internal parasites without harming the animal? Opinions please
