Diatomaceous Earth – Organic pest control

Household Pests:

Diatomaceous Earth is a natural, organic insect killer. Diatomaceous Earth kills by physical action and not by chemical so there is NO harm to pets or humans.  The tiny hard and sharp diatoms scratch off the insects waxy coating, causing it to dehydrate.
Use Diatomaceous Earth for control of roaches, silverfish, ants, fire ants, bedbugs, lice, mites, spiders, earwigs, flies, fleas, box elder bugs, crabs(std), Pubic and hair Lice, scorpions, crickets, and many other insects. Diatomaceous Earth can be used in and around the home, yard, animal housing, etc.  Sprinkle a 2 inch wide border around the foundation of your house to prevent insects from entering.

Diatomaceous Earth will not harm earthworms or beneficial soil microorganisms.

A Word About BEDBUGS

All over the United States we are seeing an outbreak of bedbugs. DE will not only kill the bedbugs you have, but will do it safely without chemicals. Remember-bed bugs cannot fly, so make sure bed is away from the wall and there is no bedding touching the floor. Surround each of the 4 legs of the bed with DE–this will kill them as they try to get on the bed the only way possible. Dust some DE on the matress and bedding–especially in the creases. Dust DE in the carpets and in corners of room. Remove electrical outlet covers and puff some DE inside the walls. The “Pest Pistol” works great for this. Keep this routine up for several days untill no more bed bugs.

Pubic Lice(Crabs) and  Hair Lice: Dust Diatomaceous Earth on all areas of the body that are infested with the Lice (Crabs).  Dust your bedding and rooms you have been in with DE also.

Plant Pests:

For control of aphids, white fly, beetles, loopers, mites, snails, slugs, leaf hoppers, and others, use Diatomaceous Earth inside your home, greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass, up to and including day of harvest. For dry application of Diatomaceous Earth use a duster and cover entire plant, apply to both top and bottom of leaf. For young plants, as little as two pounds per acre may be adequate. For larger plants, five lbs. per acre is probably sufficient. Diatomaceous Earth will need reapplication after a rain. Applies best when there is dew or after a light rain. It is a long lasting, effective powder. The insects can not build up resistance. DE can be sprayed or whitewashed by mixing 1 cup DE with 1/2 Gallon of water.  Stir frequently and spray/paint trees, yards, and fences. Diatomaceous Earth will not harm earthworms or beneficial soil microorganisms. Wear a dust mask when applying large amounts of it.

Stored Grain:

Just add 7-10 lbs. of Diatomaceous Earth to each ton of grain as it is conveyed into the storage. When added to grain, it not only makes it flow better, Diatomaceous Earth kills the bugs that are present and protects the grain from further invasions. Bugs can not become immune because they are killed by physical action, not chemical.

Any food grade diatomaceous earth uses other than those approved by the EPA, FDA, or USDA are strictly reports of what hundreds of users as well as we ourselves have done with diatomaceous earth.

  • […] Check out how DE can works in your garden. […]

  • I would like to know if DE works on wasps? They build nests in my birdhouses.

    Thank you!

    PS I do dust the nestboxes occasionally to help the birds with mite infestation.

    • Cindy:

      Thanks for the wonderful input Tania. I am glad you are so happy with this product.. just as I am.. Cindy

  • Richard Lance:

    Can it be used directly on a dog or cat for flea control?

    • Cindy:

      Yes…. you don’t need to use lots of it… but you do have to get it down to the skin where the fleas are. So after you have sprinkled it on… rub it into the fur so it gets down into the skin… or brush/comb it down to the skin. It works to kill fleas when it comes in contact with them.
