Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade is a mechanical killer that insects can’t become immune to. It works by absorbing the insects’ body fluids while removing their wax coating. It is for use in and around residential, commercial, and agricultural buildings and may be applied while animals are present, on crops, and stored grain. Apply lightly and uniformly with a hand duster or other suitable means to areas where insects are present, especially to cracks and crevices.  The amount of product to be applied will vary with the site but should usually be in the range of 1 – 5 oz. per 100 square feet (or mix one to two tablespoons per gallon of water). This will not harm birds or earthworms.
