SafeNow Diatomaceous Earthis a natural, organic garden pest control and household insect killer. Diatomaceous Earth kills by physical action, not chemicals and poison. It is safe for people, pets and planet! DE works by scratching off the insect’s waxy coating and dehydrates it. DE kills spiders, roaches, silverfish, ants, fire ants, carpenter ants, bedbugs, lice, mites, earwigs, flies, fleas, box elder bugs, crabs(std), pubic and hair lice, scorpions, crickets and harmful insects. Diatomaceous Earth is used in the home, yard, animal housing, etc. Sprinkle a 2 inch wide border around the foundation of your house to stop insects from entering.
For roaches and ants, you want to lay the DE out as you would would boric acid. Wherever the wall meets the floor, points of entry such as window sills, and in whatever places look great to hide in are all ideal places to use/spread DE. All you need for it to work is for the bugs to walk through it. What makes Diatomaceous Earth superior for pest control is that boric acid acts through ingestion only. While ingestion is a small component of DE’s action, DE works just by getting onto the insect. It physically scratches the exoskeleton of the bug, and causes them to dehydrate and die regardless of ingestion. DE is also entirely safe for people and pets to be around. In fact, many people and pets take DE in food or drink daily for better health!
