Smite Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous Earth Powder (DE Powder for short) is a unique all-natural product made entirely from fossilised algae called Diatoms. The powder looks and feels similar to chalk and is soft to the touch, but under a microscope actually consists of tiny glass-like particles. It's extremely effective against pests with exoskeletons (such as Spiders, Mites, Lice, Ticks, Bed Bugs, Cockroaches, Aphids e.t.c)
How Does Diatomaceous Earth Work
It works by effectively dehydrating a bugs exterior waxy shell and making its way inside to further dry out and kill their bodies. It’s fatal on contact to bugs but does no harm to mammals.
DE Powder is a natural, non-toxic product that can even be useful in feed to prevent worms (always follow label instructions) and can even be used on pets fur to prevent or kill fleas. DE is almost pure silica and is the second most abundant element in soils and in our ocean, so it has no harmful impact on the environment when manufactured or used.
