Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth Powder And, Crawling Insect and Bed Bug Killer - 4 lb. Bag

Leave Crawling Insects in the Dust

Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally-derived powder-like product, specifically toxic to crawling insects. This versatile, dual-action formula kills a wide range of insects by dehydration, two ways: by touch and by ingestion. Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth is chemical-free and can be applied indoors and outdoors: simply sprinkle the powder across infested areas, making sure to cover every crack and crevice where insects may travel. It will begin to work in just minutes and completely kill crawling insects in as little as 48 hours.

The Safer Brand Approach to Insect Control

This long-trusted insect killer allows you to get rid of insect pests indoors and outdoors without the need for harmful chemicals. Made with food-grade diatomaceous earth, this insect killer is OMRI listed and approved for organic gardening - so you can apply it around your home and garden with confidence.

Naturally-Derived Dust Kills From the Inside and Out

Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) is composed of crushed fossilized fresh-water algae - aka diatoms. While soft to a human’s touch, D.E. particles have microscopic, razor-sharp edges that effectively penetrate and cut open an insect’s delicate exoskeleton to dehydrate it from the outside. D.E. is also very dry and porous, so when an insect ingests the powder, it quickly absorbs the insect’s moisture and dries it out from the inside. As long as the product remains dry, it remains effective. What’s more, because there are no chemicals in Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth, insects cannot grow immune to it - you’ll never have to switch insect-killers again.

Sprinkle Directly Where Insects Live and Breed:

Kitchens and Living Areas

Coat a thin layer of dust underneath and behind appliances, furniture, doorways, windowsills and other cracks and hiding places around the home.

Attics, Basements and Garages

Apply in every nook and cranny of infested areas to completely eradicate insects and end the breeding cycle.

Beds and Mattresses

Dust onto every inch and crevice of your bed and mattress to kill off bedbugs.

Exteriors, Patios and More

Use in outdoor areas along entryways and exterior windows to kill insects before they enter the home.

The Safer Brand Philosophy

One of the world leaders in organic insect control, organic plant disease control and organic gardening products for over 20 years, Safer Brand is dedicated to offer the broadest and deepest selection of quality insect control and plant disease control products at competitive prices.

I used this along with steam treatment and bed encasements/isolation to combat a mild/moderate bed bug infestation. I have seen no bugs and received no bites for over two weeks. I have no trouble sleeping now after freaking out when I first discovered the infestation. I went to great lengths to research bugs and take the right steps to defend against them because their survivability is amazing. Also, I live in an apartment unit, so there is hope for people who are not fortunate enough to live in a detached home.

When using the product take proper precautions not to breathe the powder (it will be fine once it settles). You should only need to apply a light amount of powder in key areas (bed frame, box spring, mattress piping, surrounding furniture, wall outlets, picture frames, shelves, cracks, crevices, etc.) and bed bugs may avoid large clumps of it. You might not see it but have faith, it will kill. The bottle is easy to use - I shake it a little to get rid of clumps and then squeeze it parallel to the floor to get a light amount of dust.

Overall it is a great product and an essential tool for bed bug eradication. Even though bed bugs will travel from room to room and possibly unit to unit in apartment settings, you can use this to ensure that they die in the process. Good luck to anyone with a bed bug problem (or any other bug). I will post updates on mine.

Update: Smooth sailing for almost two months. We found two bed bugs within two weeks, in the bathroom of all places. It was daytime and they were out in the open, so they were probably starved. Not sure if they were hiding from before treatment or if they came from another apartment unit. Either way, no confirmed bites and no signs of reinfestation.

...if you can wait for the products to get to you from Amazon, you can do just as good a job defeating bed bugs as the professionals will - probably better, because you have a more personal interest. First of all, never buy pillows or mattresses without buying bed bug-proof pillow and mattress covers from Target (they might be available elsewhere, but I found them at Target). If you don't use these covers and you get bed bugs, your mattresses and pillows are pretty well shot. We didn't and we learned the hard way. When we got bed bugs, we had to throw them in the dumpster and buy news ones. Covers are critical. Don't spend big $$$ on mattresses and pillows without buying protective covers for them. If you do get bed bugs, three products will wipe them out. Put Climbup Insect Interceptors under each bed post. If you have supports under your mattress, put one under each support, too. The Interceptors come in different sizes. Fill the trough of the Interceptors with Diatomaceous Earth. Diatomaceous Earth is harmless to humans, but rips bed bugs and other insects to shreds. Also, make sure your bed is not touching the wall. Sprayaway Bed Bugs is very effective for spraying around your house or apartment. You can use it to spray the perimeter and anywhere else - it doesn't stain or harm walls, woodwork, carpeting, furniture, etc. Once I used these products, it not only killed the bed bugs, it killed the eggs and hatching bed bugs. Bed bugs are masters at hiding, so you have to seek them out. Spray anywhere there are cracks and other hiding places, including any spaces where your bed parts fit together - you might have to take your bed apart to get to these areas. Bed bugs like to hide behind pictures on the wall, too.Read more ›

From everything I have read, Safer Brand 5168 Diatomaceous Earth Powder Ant and Crawling Insect Killer should help solve a long-standing problem of mine.

The Good: Should help solve the annual American Cockroach problem.

The Bad: That some people don't do important reading before writing their reviews.

I am happy to have a Diatomaceous Earth-based insecticide because I genuinely hate cockroaches of all kinds and everything I've researched about the product tells me that it is non-toxic to humans and pets and that this Summer, it will hellp me to kill this Summer's' crop of big, ugly American Cockroaches ("waterbugs" "palmetto bugs" etc.).

What it is, what it does.

Unlike poisons like DDT, to which roaches and other insects rapidly develop an immunity (natural selection works and with insects, it works *fast*! ), diatomaceous earth is a mechanical insecticide, a powder obtained by mining, composed of the dried, processed shells of microscopic animals that had lived in water.

Instead of chemical toxins, Diatomaceous Earth kills insects either by breaking down the waxy coating insects need to keep water inside their bodies, causing them to die by dehydration, or, by tearing holes in their exoskeletons like microscopic daggers, killing them by bleeding.

Will it hurt you or your pets?

Unless you or your pets have six legs and a love for crawling, the short answer is "no."

According to Wikipedia, medical grade D. E. has been used as a worming agent for humans and animals, and in toothpaste, as an insecticide added to grain and as an absorbing agent in cat litter.

As something that has been around since the early 1800s, If D.E.
