Details on how Diatomaceous Earth works to kill crawling insects.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a dust-like product that contains the crushed fossilized algae (diatoms) from fresh water. These crushed diatoms feel like powder when we rub it in our hand. But it’s very sharp to insects with delicate exoskeletons. When you apply DE, dust is ingested by the crawling insect or the insect crosses through the powder. The DE will cut their exoskeleton. This causes the insect to dehydrate and die. Insects cannot develop a resistance to it since there are no chemicals to which they can build up immunity.
Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) Listed
At Safer® Brand, we pride ourselves in offering you organic products. Ant and Crawling Insect Killer is another product you can feel safe using in and around your home. OMRI Listed® and USDA Approved for Organic Gardening. No worries of toxic residuals.
What type of Diatomaceous Earth is this?
Beware. Not all DE is the same. Our DE is made of Silicon Dioxide. This comes from a freshwater source. It is the same type as used in food-grade diatomaceous earth. Be careful of products made of Diatomite DE. It is made from unnatural sources.
Take note. Safer® Brand DE is not labeled as food grade. Why you ask? Since we register all products with the EPA we only have two options. Label as pest control. Or label as food grade. We cannot label one product as both. We make organic pest control products, so we registered it that way.
Use DE to solve problems with virtually any crawling insect. Ants. Earwigs. Cockroaches. Silverfish. Crickets. Fleas. Centipedes and more.
INDOOR USE: Lightly coat a thin layer of duct in the areas where these pests are found or may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath stoves, refrigerators, sinks, cabinets, garbage cans, around pipes and drains, window frames, and in attics and basements. Hit insects directly where possible. Repeat treatment as necessary.
OUTDOOR USE: Lightly coat the areas where these pests are found or may hide including windows, door frames, and sills, and outside of entrance ways. Repeat treatment as necessary.
