It will kill the active bugs, but not the eggs. The bugs cannot safely traverse a thick line of it without later dying.

Ants are fleeing
I got this product to use in my garden because it was being invaded by ants. I decided to try this product since it said it was safe for gardens and it killed so many different types of insects. It is a powder or dust instead of granuals like most bug killers. It is easy to apply, just make sure the wind isn't blowing when you are applying. There isn't any harsh odor or anything. The one negative is the bag isn't resealable like it is supposed to be. So far I have noticed a reduction in the amount of ants and they are no longer crawling up the legs of my raised garden. I still see some ants but it is nothing like it was yesterday.

Works Well
Wow this product really work! I bought it to test it to see if it really is worth the hype. I put it around my new fence where I saw an Ant trail 2 days before and when I went to check the trail a day later, I only saw dead ants. I must say it is worth the hype! I am very satisfied with my purchase!

Not what it says on the website
This product was labeled in a misleading manner. On the mobile website we thought we were ordering a 4 lb bag of DIATOMACEOUS EARTH, only upon receiving it to see its 90% Silica and other chemicals. From what I can tell its working well, and I'm not giving the product a bad rating, I'm giving Home Depot a bad rating for incorrectly labeling their products. . We bought this to get rid of fleas, and we wanted an organic, completely safe material like Diatomaceous earth because we have a dog, a 6 mo. old baby, and a 4 year old. Unfortunately this is not what we wanted, but we're giving it a go anyway. I've attached a photo of the Order Pick List and what the label for the product says

I was hoping this product would kill the squash beetles...
I was hoping this product would kill the squash beetles in my garden, given they allegedly sleep at the bottoms of the plants at night to keep warm. Perhaps it did kill those who travelled downward and picked this up on their exoskeletons and the remaining beetles were the eggs that hatched on the leaves? In either case, I didn't see a difference. Then again, I started this late in the season. I will start this at the beginning of next growing season to see if it helps curb this beetle problem.
