Diatomaceous Earth it the fossilized microsopic skeletons of algae. These skeletons are know as diatoms. Diatoms are mostly a chemical compound called silica. Silica is a common natural component of everything from sand and rocks, to plants and animals. Diatomaceous Earth is a unique concentrated form of silica.
Our Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is fine, food grade suitable for use as insecticide. When the insect contacts DE, the silica removes the waxy outer coating from the insect's skeleton. This causes the insect to dehydrate and die. DE is therefore a very effective, non-toxic insecticide.
DE can be used in most beetle traps.
