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.

Looking for suggestions on how to apply the powder.

Product is slow to work, yet is very effective. Only problem is I waste a lot, because it's difficult to distribute the powder evenly. I need some sort of shaker to apply the powder. A salt shaker is too small if you're doing an outside perimeter. Any suggestions?
Asked by: greenthumb
Try to create a reusable shaker out of an old Comet or other scrubbable powder container.

4 lb. Diatomaceous Earth Ant and Crawling Insect Killer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 211.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% Quality Product Totally satisfied!First of all we had no pets or children.Purchased a plastic mustard container with a long spout.Poured this product via the nozzle along every carpet/wall seam in a small amount.Poured a small amount between box/matress edges and around bed frame legs in small amounts.Within 1 day we noticed dead bugs,one was on the wall and when I touched it..poof..it turned into powder!Anyway,after 1 week we have our life back as these were here from previous residents and living in walls and carpet areas.strongly recommend this product as the small amounts we used we not unsightly and highly effective.Constantly wash your hands after any contact just to be safe =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective but messy So this really works, its been a killing field for little critters in the garage and outside the edge of my house. However you really need some kind of applicator, don't expect to just toss this stuff around because it will be too thick and you then have a bunch of white dust everywhere. Get some kind of puffer to spray it into those tight spaces where the bugs will go and you won't see. Roaches and ants are dying everywhere, and my spider problem seems to be under control. But this stuff is very difficult to clean up unless you spray it with a hose and it will leave a white residue that takes several attempts to truly get rid of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works so good have no fear. i got it and had a war .. use a sock .. scoop it in.. and just kinda shake the sock . it will help get it into the cracks and crevices.. no signs of life after 2 weeks. would you rather have a little white dust on your clothes for a bit or something crawling up ur legs.. seriously. i slept fine with it all around .. i didnt even clean it up for 2 or 3 months cause i wanted to obliterate everything. just change the vac flter after... no regrets. companies will say it doesnt work so you can keep paying them for their service... take actions into your own hands and get the best sleep u had in a while. i'm not telling u what to do but just sharing my experience... There is NO other way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grest product I read about Diatomaceous Earth online when I had a flea infestation last year. What a powdery mess! But it worked! I sprinkled the Diatomaceous Earth on the carpet near the base boards and use a broom to sweep the powder around on the carpet. I left the power on for a couple of days then started vacuuming very 2 days and no more bugs or fleas! It also works in the yard for ant and ground bug control. I use a fertilizer spreader and work my way from the perimeter of the house out. This drives the bugs way from the house! Will do this in the yard every spring at least twice. It is a bit messy, but cheaper than all those other products out there. Here's a hint: vinegar, salt and dish soap sprayed on poison ivy and other weeds will kill them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, but make sure your vacuum is up to the task This product worked great, had a flea infestation and was getting close to calling an exterminator. Sprinkled this on the carpet and for the next half day they attacked me like crazy, they were apparently pretty annoyed. By the third day, almost none were left. But, a major con depending on what kind of vacuum cleaner you have! The dust is VERY fine and can destroy a cheap vacuum cleaner unless it has a filter for fine particles. I would recommend getting your carpets professionally cleaned after sprinkling your whole house as we lost a $70 vacuum in the cleanup. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe to believe in SAFER I discovered I had those pesky bed bugs in my apartment. After considerable research, I decided to purchase DE. I went to my local Home Depot and luckily they had one bag remaining and the associate told me everyone has this problem so I didn't feel so embarrassed to purchase this for bed bugs. I applied it with a slender paint brush for the cracks and crevices and plastic bottle (like the ones see in restaurant). i used a mask to over my mouth and gloves to cover my hands. I read where someone didn't use gloves and their hands dried out pretty bad.Within 5 days,I was seeing died out bugs here and there. It has been 3 weeks and I haven't seen anymore live ones. So I know it's working. I will continue to use this brand and will continue to purchase it at Home Depot because it works. The price is right for the amount of product you get.
