Diatomaceous Powder food grade is made from the fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms. Their skeletons are made of a natural substance called silica. Over a long period of time, diatoms accumulated in the sediment of rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans. Diatomaceous earth, is a natural substance that is actually created from the remains of diatoms, microscopic water plants that are like algae. It contains such minerals as silicon, calcium, sodium, and magnesium. It has a consistency similar to talcum powder and is available at most garden suppliers
How does diatomaceous earth work?
Diatomaceous Powder food grade is not poisonous; it does not have to be eaten in order to be effective. Diatomaceous earth (DE POWDER) causes insects to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the cuticle of the insect's exoskeleton. Its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. It remains effective as long as it is kept dry and undisturbed.
What Types of Critters is DE Useful On?
DE – both food grade and forms containing additional pesticides
– is effective on anything with an exoskeleton.
This means insects (anything with six legs) and non-insect
arthropods (eight or more legs). Crawling and hiding insect,
spider, and scorpion pests will contact crack and crevice treatments,
so DE is an excellent option for these areas.
