Earthsafe Diatomaceous earth (DE) is composed of tiny, fossilized diatoms (aquatic organisms) that accumulated over millennia in fresh water lakes. When mined and left untreated, this amazing product can be used in hundreds of different ways. However, not all diatomaceous earth is created equal. While most other manufacturer’s hand scoop DE into zip lock bags, Earthsafe Diatomaceous Earth is professionally packaged using stainless steel equipment. Because of this process, you can be confident there are no contaminants in this food-grade quality diatomaceous earth.
Diatomaceous Earth Works by absorbing the insects’ body fluids, and removes their wax coating due to D.E.’s sharp edges.
Directions: Use a light dusting anywhere pest control is needed, or mix one to two tablespoons per gallon of water. Will not harm birds or earthworms.
