With Safer Brand 4 lb. Diatomaceous Earth Ant and Crawling Insect Killer you can leave bugs dead in the dust. And you don’t have to worry about applying chemicals to get the job done. This product kills any type of crawling insect within 48 hours. Once you apply Ant and Crawling Insect Killer where you have a crawling insect problem, you’ll see insect activity stop in minutes. Infestation issues in a couple of days. You can use it inside your home or outside in gardens, or on patios and walkways. It lasts as long as it’s dry. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a dust-like product that contains the crushed fossilized algae (diatoms) from fresh water. These crushed diatoms feel like powder when we rub it in our hand. But it’s very sharp to insects with delicate exoskeletons. When you apply DE, dust is ingested by the crawling insect or the insect crosses through the powder. The DE will cut their exoskeleton. This causes the insect to dehydrate and die. Insects cannot develop a resistance to it since there are no chemicals to which they can build up immunity.

  • Diatomaceous Earth dust kills ants by dehydration or ingestion

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely the best and safest insect control product available SAFE diatomaceous earth works like a charm to eliminate fleas, ticks, spiders, beetles, bedbugs, roaches, ants and all crawling insects without any possible harm to the environment. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kills bed bugs!!!! My husband was being eaten alive by these critters. The bites first appeared in Jan 2014, at first we were in denial because we never saw any. Over time the bites kept increasing and oddly enough he was the only one being attacked! Based on pics we found on the internet we knew it had to be bed bugs. I used a small flour sifter, a yellow pointy nose mustard bottle from the dollar store with a face mask an gently squirted this magical powder along the base board throughout the apartment, the crevice of the coach, night stand, dresser, foot of the bed and chairs. Sprinkled with sifter under the mattress and sofa seats. I had a heavy hand when applying. Started noticing a difference immediately. Two days after applying this stuff we finally saw a couple slowly moving in the bathroom covered in powder. By the end of the week no more bites!!! Two months later and still no more bugs. With the help of Neosporine ( boy did he scratch them) his embarrassing bite marks are almost gone. May 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by note sure if it works I purchased a bag about 3 weeks ago. I wanted to know about how long it takes to work so I did a test. I have a Bugzuka (sucks up bugs) so I trapped about 30-40 of the cockroaches I was having issues with. I took a large plastic bin and coated the inside of it. I put food in the middle of a pile of the stuff. Then I put the coach roaches in after dumping the stuff on half of them. I watch week after week that the cockroaches kept moving around and eating and acting like they loved the stuff. Needless to stay 3 weeks on and 90% of them are still alive :(. About a week ago I took a second group and denied them food and water and so far 1/2 of them have died. September 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Safe from Bedbugs I put cardboard squares under the feet of my bed. Then I sprinkled a ring of diatomaceous earth. No more bedbug bites! Awesome! No poison needed. December 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A little messy, but seems to do the job We had a serious bedbug problem that stemmed from our kids rooms and infested the house, we used this product and so far haven't had any issues, it did take about 2 weeks, but much cheaper than calling in the exterminator. We tested it at first by putting a bedbug in a container with the white powder and it died in about 20 minutes. Messy and not good for your vacuum, plus you have to leave it on the floor and under your sheets for the entire time, but worth the results and money savings. One 4 lb bag will take care of a 2200 sqft house easily. We used a Lays chip container and put holes in the lid with a hot nail as a shaker to help spread the product where we needed it. We have dogs, cats and 4 children under the age of 8, very safe to use. July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this stuff I love this product. It works as an insect repellant. I sprinkle it outside my front and rear doors and other areas of the house where I think they may come in (i.e. guest bathroom tub drains). IT'S WORKED so far. Oh, yeah, it works on those pesky ant hills in my yard also. Sprinkle the stuff all over the top and sides of the mound and watch the ants try to get away from it. Follow the instruction regarding wearing a mask to keep from ingesting or breathing around the product. I isn't harmful to humans unless it's inhaled. May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KO's bedbugs in the first round! Yo son, check it! I've literally tried everything from pest traps, sprays, & bombs & everyone from Orkin, Clark's, & Terminex pest controls and nobody kicked these bed bugs' butts faster and in a more dominating way than this product. This product packs a mean punch, one that not even the most skilled bed bug can counter. Safer's Diatomaceous Earth simply smothers bed bugs in the corner of the ring and KO's the opposition! If you're tired of bed bugs bullying you then I recommend sending in The Safer 4lb. Diatomaceous Earth Ant & Crawling Insect Killer!! July 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works PERFECT on bed bugs Don't know where the came from, but one day they started coming out of my 3 month old NEW Sectional Couch. I researched a couple of days for the best product to us to get rid of these nasty bed bugs, different sites gave DE great reviews. Went to HomeDepot and purchased 4lb bag for $9.00.. Put DE inside of sectional, on the floor around the couch and any spaces where they could hide. I also used HotShot Bed Bug and flea spray along with DE. Use Hotshot then put down DE around base of walls and around and inside of sectional (MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WELL VENTILATED AREA when spraying Hotshot bed bug and flea spray) 48 hrs later NO BED BUGS SEEN!!!!
