Diatomaceous Earth

$34.99 (1 Kg)

Diatomaceous Earth is an insect control powder, made from amorphous silica consisting of fossilized remains of diatoms belonging into a major group of algae, one of the most common types of phytoplankton.

How It Works: Insects have a thin covering of wax on their body that helps to prevent water loss. Diatomaceous Earth kills insects through internal and external cutting action, which also causes dehydration of the insect pests. DE particles damage the insect’s gut and insects stop to eat and lose water through damaged tissue. Can be used as a dry or wet powder.

Can also by used to improve soil structure and moisture retention.
