Diatomaceous earth Insecticides works as an insecticide in two ways, it removes the moisture from the insect’s habitant, making it difficult or impossible for the insects to remain.
Use Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide Dust to eliminate crawling insects around your home. Our Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide Dust comes in the form of a chalky powder and is the natural fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. Diatom particles are very small and sharp – but only harmful to the small exoskeletons of insects.
Insects cannot become immune to its action, as it is a mechanical killer – not a chemical one. Because it is light dust, diatomaceous earth easily clings to the bodies of insects as they crawl over it. The tiny diatom particles are then cut into the waxy coating of insects and they dry out and die of dehydration within 48 hours.
Food-Grade Diatomaceous Earth is an all-natural product that is so safe it can be sprinkled around your vegetable patch, or rubbed right into your dog’s fur.
