Diatomaceous Earth controls insects physically, not chemically, it's like little razor blades to insect’s exoskeleton and not harmful to warm-blooded animals. The more it is used, the more an environment is created which makes insects feel unwelcome. Apply to plant leafs, flowers, fruit and vegetables. Dust entire plant and areas where insects live. It is a long-lasting, natural, effective powder, and it is impossible for insects to build up a resistance.

Pest Control

Diatomaceous Earth is used as an effective insecticide due to its physical properties. The fine powder absorbs lipids from the waxy outer layer of insects' exoskeletons, causing them to dehydrate. Arthropods die as a result of the water pressure deficiency. This also works against gastropods and is commonly employed in gardening to defeat slugs. It is sometimes mixed with an attractant or other additives to increase its effectiveness. Food-grade DE is sometimes used to de-worm both animals and humans. It is most commonly used in lieu of boric acid, and can be used to help control and eventually eliminate a bug and insect infestations. This material has wide application for insect control.
