DiatomaceousEarth Review

DiatomaceousEarth is unlike traditional bug killers in that it is food grade and safe to use in areas that other insecticides could do potential harm. Chances are you have had to deal with some unwanted insects in or around your home. Spraying harmful poisons in areas that are accessible to children or pets can be quite worrisome. Because most insects in your house are looking for a food source, your kitchen becomes a key target for these pests. Like most, you might be hesitant to spray insecticides and pesticides around your food or kitchen counters.

DiatomaceousEarth is a healthy, organic, and all-natural option. It comes in resealable bags in multiple sizes ranging from one-pound to ten-pound bags. Most users have placed DiatomaceousEarth in or around their homes to combat small insects such as fleas, ants, and bedbugs. It can be lightly dusted in problem areas such as gardens, kitchen counters, or anywhere else you may have seen unwanted bugs. Some users recommended a light dusting in the yard to control ant and flea infestations.
