Diatomaceous Earth is an all-natural and organic product that can help grow you a beautiful and healthy garden. There are many uses for diatomaceous earth but the garden diatomaceous earth can be used as an insecticide.
Diatomaceous earth works great to get rid of insects such as:
- Bed Bugs
To these insects, diatomaceous earth is a lethal dust with microscopic sharp edges which cuts through these insects' protective covering and dries them out.
We recommend that you apply it as a wettable form to avoid airborne dust particles. Even then we recommend that you wear a mask as a precaution.
For the spraying application of diatomaceous earth, we recommend that the diatomaceous earth is mixed at 1 cup per gallon of water. (236.5ml per 2L of water)
Keep the mix agitated to make sure it stays well mixed with the water for the application.
The mix can also be applied as a paint of sort to trees and shrubs as needed.
