Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer - Diatomaceous Earth 7 oz 'Puffer' Bottle
Safer® Brand's powerful diatomaceous earth formula works as a bed bug killer to eliminate these nuisance pests from your home! This pest control formula is ideal for ant control, cockroach control and as earwig, silverfish, cricket, millipede and centipede control.
The Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer utilizes diatomaceous earth (AKA silicon dioxide) which includes a bait formula that kills insects by ingestion/dehydration within 48 hours. Our D.E. is made of crushed fossilized algae from freshwater sources. This fine powder is soft to a human’s touch, but is very sharp to insects. Once insects crawl through or ingest the dust, it pierces their exoskeletons causing them to dehydrate and die. Works indoors and outdoors when kept dry. Also comes in a 4 lb bag for many applications. OMRI Listed® formulation.
Insects cannot develop a resistance to D.E. since there are no chemicals to which they can build up an immunity. If the area where the Diatomaceous Earth is applied becomes wet, it will need to be reapplied. Diatomaceous Earth is effective as a bed bug killer, flea killer, and crawling insect killer.
But BEWARE.... all Diatomaceous Earth is not the same. Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer Powder with Diatomaceous Earth is made from 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 D.E. which can be derived from unnatural sources.
