Bothered by crawling insects such as ants, earwigs, cockroaches, silverfish, crickets, fleas, millipedes or centipedes? Safer Brand's Ant and Crawling Insect Powder utilizes Diatomaceous Earth (a.k.a., silicon dioxide), which includes a bait formula that kills insects by ingestion/dehydration within 48 hours. It works indoors and outdoors when kept dry. The efficient nature of this organic pest control product makes it the most economical and convenient solution to the wide array of garden annoyances on the market. It's OMRI Listed and USDA Certified for use in organic gardening.
This version comes in a 4-pound resealable bag, but it's also available in a 7-ounce puffer bottle.
The Safer Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Powder provides you with two forms of protection against crawling insects. First, if the pest ingests the Diatomaceous Earth, they will die within 48 hours of ingestion. The second method is that when the insect crawls through Diatomaceous Earth, it will cut their exoskeleton, which releases their vital moisture within their body, causing them to dehydrate and die.
The best part about this product is that insects won't become immune to this solution--finally, an organic solution to crawling insects with lasting protection.
Not all Diatomaceous Earth is not the same. Safer Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer Powder with Diatomaceous Earth is made from a patented formula containing amorphous diatomaceous earth, known as silicon dioxide. This particular type of Diatomaceous Earth is derived from fresh water sources and is not the same as Diatomite DE, which can be derived from unnatural sources and has been linked to cancer.
