Diatom Dust 2 pound (Various Sizes, Vendors may vary)
THE ORGANIC GARDENER'S BEST KEPT SECRET!
A rich, bountiful, organic garden can be COMPLETELY PEST FREE without the use of toxic chemicals! DE Powder is the organic gardener's secret weapon against unwanted pests and poisonous pesticides. Use DE Powder to safely rid your garden and home of: bedbugs, roaches, ants, slugs, fleas, spiders, scorpions, mites, crickets, and many other insects.
WHAT IT IS: DE Powder consists of the powdered fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled, freshwater algae. It comes from an extremely pure, freshwater deposit, is uncalcinated, has a very fine particle size, and contains less than one half of 1% crystalline silica. It is the highest quality, purest, food grade diatomaceous earth availalble.
HOW IT WORKS: DE Powder works mechanically, not chemically, so there is NO risk to pets or humans. The tiny, hard and sharp diatoms destroy a wide range of pests by cutting through the exoskeleton, absorbing bodily fluids and causing them to dehydrate and die.
OTHER BENEFITS AND USES:
- Protect Pets: When lightly rubbed into their coats or dusted on and around their beds and living areas it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests.
- Eliminate Bedbugs: Surround legs of bed and dust into the carpet, mattress & bedding for several days until bedbugs are GONE.
- Deodorize damp, smelly spaces: As a natural dessicant, DE Powder is perfect in the refrigerator as you would use baking soda and in closets and shoes to remove moisture and odors!
- Exfoliate: Mix into your facial cleanser for a mildy abrasive scrub/mask. ...Just to name a few! Product has not been evaluated by the EPA as an insecticide.
