Diatomaceous Earth, the all-natural, organic, and incredibly versatile product that can help you grow a beautiful and healthy garden. With its unique ability to act as a potent insecticide, Diatomaceous Earth is the perfect tool for keeping your garden free from pesky insects like aphids, thrips, ants, mites, bed bugs, snails, and slugs.
Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally occurring substance that is composed of fossilized remains of diatoms. These fossilized diatoms contain microscopic sharp edges that, when ingested or come in contact with insects' bodies, cut through their protective covering and dry them out, ultimately causing their demise.
To use Diatomaceous Earth as an insecticide, we recommend that you apply it as a wettable form to avoid airborne dust particles. We also recommend that you wear a mask as a precaution. For the spraying application of Diatomaceous Earth, mix 1 cup per gallon of water (236.5ml per 2L of water) and keep the mix agitated to ensure it stays well mixed with the water for the application. The mix can also be applied as a paint of sorts to trees and shrubs as needed.
With a weight of 1.25kg, Diatomaceous Earth is the perfect size for any gardener, whether you're a professional landscaper or a green-thumbed enthusiast. So why wait?
