Description

How It Works

Safer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) provides effective pest control against a variety of crawling insects. This ready-to-use powder-like insecticide is super easy to use and can be applied to places where insects spend most of their time. Once insects come in contact or ingest this dual-action powder, it immediately goes to work to completely kill them within 48 hours.

Our D.E. is non-staining and has no odor, so you can confidently apply within your home. D.E. also works outdoors to eliminate pesky crawling insects in your garden. Just keep in mind that it will need to be reapplied after watering or rain,

Kills crawling insects within 48 hours.


Once you apply Safer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth in areas where you have a crawling insect problem, you’ll notice that D.E. goes to work right away! This unique dual-action crawling insect killer uses two modes to eliminate bugs – by ingestion and touch. Now you have a two-prong approach to getting rid of nuisance crawling insects inside and outside your home.

After applying D.E., you’ll find that bugs die completely within 48 hours. If you have a large infestation issue, it may take a few days for all insects to come in contact with the powder and the infestation to be gone.

A Mechanical Killer to the Rescue

Diatomaceous earth is unlike most other insect killers on the market today. Insects cannot build up an immunity to D.E. since it works as a mechanical killer to begin killing insects on contact. There are no chemicals in D.E. like there are in other chemical elimination products that insects can build up an immunity to.

This dust-like powder is made from crushed fossilized algae, aka diatoms that come from freshwater sources. It feels like a fine powder when we rub it in our hands, but these tiny diatoms are very sharp to insects with delicate exoskeletons. When applied, insects cross through the powder or ingest it, effectively cutting their exoskeleton and causing them to dehydrate and die within 48 hours.

Sprinkle Directly Where Insects Live

Safer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth effectively kills a variety of crawling insects including bedbugs, cockroaches, earwigs, grasshoppers, ants, crickets, millipedes, centipedes, silverfish, carpet beetles, fleas, and more. For quick results, apply directly to cracks and crevices inside and outside your home, hitting these insects directly where they live and breed.

Coat a thin layer of dust underneath and behind appliances, furniture, doorways, windowsills and other hiding places throughout your kitchen and living areas. And if you see any insects while you’re applying, make sure you sprinkle D.E. directly on them for further benefit. Don’t forget to apply in nooks and crannies of attics, basements and garages as these places are known hotspots that many crawling insects love to hide in.

A Solution for Bedbugs, Fleas, and Outdoor Insects

In order to use diatomaceous earth to get rid of a bedbug infestation, it’s important that all areas of the bedroom are thoroughly dusted. It’s best to dismantle your bed and bedframe in order to reach every crevice where bedbugs hide. Dust all areas of the bed with D.E., including the edges, folds and surface area of the mattress. It’s even a good idea to dust D.E. your windowsills and openings in your bedroom too. Once the bedbugs come into contact with D.E., they will die within 48 hours.

If you’ve found that fleas have entered your home, whether they came inside with your pets or by another means, D.E. can help! Thoroughly apply diatomaceous earth to cracks and crevices, baseboards, and carpets wherever fleas are suspected. You can also use D.E. on the floor and bedding where your pet sleeps. Be sure to keep your pets out of the affected areas and off the bedding until the flea infestation is gone and D.E. is cleaned up and removed.

D.E. can also be used to get rid of crawling insects found on the exterior of your home and even in your gardens. Just remember that D.E. only works to kill nuisance insects when dry, so you’ll need to reapply after rain or watering.

Silicon Dioxide D.E. vs. Diatomite D.E.

There are many forms of diatomaceous earth out there, but not all are the same. Our D.E. is made of Amorphous Silicon Dioxide which is composed of crushed fossilized algae that comes from freshwater sources. This is the same type of D.E. that is used in food-grade diatomaceous earth and is mined from natural sources found throughout the world.

Synthetic Amorphous Silicon Dioxide, or Diatomite D.E., is another form of D.E. that’s commonly available. This kind of D.E. is manmade and doesn’t come from natural sources. It’s not a good idea to spread this type of D.E. inside your home or in areas where children, people or pets go.

Unable to review product yet since only put down today By sannsal

I put down this product today on my lawn because of having chiggers. I also put it down on soil that I will plant vegetables in during the next couple of days. From what I've read from your comments below, I'm not sure now if I can plant these vegetables. I have tomatoes, swiss chard, herbs, and cucumbers. Please let me know asap if at all able. Thank you!

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

While this product can be used outdoors around cracks and crevices, it is not recommended for use in a vegetable garden as it is not a food grade product. We recommend watering the garden until there is no Diatomaceous Earth left behind.

Question about the safety of using this product in my vegetable garden By Melissa

Is the Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth safe to use in my vegetable garden? I bought it and used it on my garden recently. Will it be safe to eat my vegetables when they are ready to harvest? Is it safe to use around my dog?

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Melissa,

This product is not recommended for use in a vegetable garden. We recommend rinsing the vegetables and the garden area to ensure there is no Diatomaceous Earth left behind. This product does not impact plantings or soil health going forward.

While the product can be used around pets, we recommend keeping them out of the area while it is being applied and until the dust has settled.

Works well plus cat question By Jen

It serves its purpose. Its not an end to issues but for sure helps. My only question is can this be put outside around your house and is this harmful to cats?

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We recommend using this product with caution around cats. When using outdoors, we recommend lightly coating a thin layer of the product in areas where insects are found such as patios, window and door frames and outdoor sills. Apply around foundations, along ant trails, and around sewer pipes and drains.

What else is in there? By Lori

The main ingredient is listed as being around 77% of the total --and nothing else is mentioned. I want to know what else is in there. I think it's interesting that there's no mention of what makes up the other 23% of the contents. What is it? Shouldn't all the ingredients be listed?

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

This product is mined from natural sources found throughout the world. The ingredients that are listed on the label is what is required by the EPA. All other ingredients are proprietary.

Q&A
Q.I read that food grade d.e. can be used in pets food & litterboxes to kill bugs. Also of pets ingest it, it can kill parasites such as worms. Is this true & can i do that with non-food grade d.e.?
A.

We can only speak to our products. Our DiatomaceousEarth is not food grade. We recommend placing it in cracks and crevices where pests are found such as beneath and behind refrigerators, cabinets, stoves, garbage cans, window frames and in attics and basements.

Q.Is this safe for cats to get into?
A.

Pets should be kept from the area until the product has settled.

This is not meant to be consumed and should be applied in a thin layer along cracks and crevices.
