Description

Labelled for use to kill a variety of crawling insects including bed bugs, ants, earwigs, cockroaches, silverfish, crickets, slugs, millipedes, and centipedes. This is OMRI Listed® and compliant for use in organic gardening; diatomaceous earth kills the insects within 48 hours after they ingest it.

Once you apply Ant and Crawling Insect Killer where you have a crawling insect problem, you’ll see insect activity stop in minutes. Infestation issues will subside in a couple of days. Dual action. Kills insects by ingestion and dehydration. You can use it inside your home or outside in gardens, or on patios and walkways. It works as long as it’s dry.

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 hands, 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 the insect 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.
