Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a dust-like product that contains the crushed fossilized remains of diatoms. The dust is ingested by the bed bug or other crawling insect, or as the insect crosses through the powder, the DE will cut their exoskeleton, causing them to dehydrate and die.
The best part about Diatomaceous Earth is that insects cannot develop a resistance to it since there are no chemicals to which they can build up an immunity. If the area where the Diatomaceous Earth is applied becomes wet, it will need to be reapplied. Diatomaceous Earth is effective as a bed bug killer, flea killer, and crawling insect killer.
But BEWARE.... all Diatomaceous Earth is not the same.
Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer Powder with Diatomaceous Earth is made from a patented formula containing amorphous diatomaceous earth, known as silicon dioxide. This particular type of Diatomaceous Earth is derived from fresh water sources and is NOT the same as Diatomite DE which can be derived from unnatural sources and has been linked to cancer. You can shop confidently, knowing that Safer® Brand Ant & Crawling Insect Killer is OMRI® listed and contains Amorphous Diatomaceous Earth.

Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth - Bed Bug, Ant, and Crawling Insect Killer Ready-to-Use, 4 lbs. Questions & Answers
What type of Diatomaceous Earth is this?
Beware. Not all DE is the same. Our DE is made of Silicone Dioxide. This comes from a freshwater source. It is the same type as used in food-grade diatomaceous earth. Be careful of products made of Diatomite DE. It is made from unnatural sources.
Take note, Safer Brand DE is not labeled as food grade. Why you ask? Since we register all products with the EPA we only have two options. Label as pest control. Or label as food grade. We cannot label one product as both. We make organic pest control products, so we registered it that way.
Use DE to solve problems with virtually any crawling insect. Ants. Earwigs. Cockroaches. Silverfish. Crickets. Fleas. Centipedes and more.
