Diatomaceous Earth: Eco-Friendly Remedy for Pest Control
The major players like ants, spiders, and houseflies are uncomfortable enough to deal with, but the fear of the unseen pests like fleas, ticks, and bedbugs can be overwhelming. The best place to start is outside; prevention is the best medicine. But what do you do with the pests that have already found their way into your home? Simple–use one product that takes care of both areas. The eco-friendly and all natural pest control powder, Diatomoaceous earth.
Food-grade Diatomaceous earth is composed of fossilized particles of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. The chalky powder is completely harmless to humans, animals, and soil because it works as a mechanical, not chemical, killer. Diatomaceous earth clings to the bodies of insects as they crawl over it. The tiny particles of dust penetrate the waxy coating protecting the insects’ bodies and they die from dehydration.
The food-grade Diatomaceous earth is so safe it can be sprinkled around your vegetable garden or right into your pets’ fur. But be sure not confuse it with the non-food-grade Diatomaceous earth which can be very dangerous.
