Details on how Diatomaceous Earth works to kill crawling insects.
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.

At Safer® Brand, we pride ourselves in offering you products that are compliant with organic gardening standards. Ant and Crawling Insect Killer is another product you can feel confident using in and around your home. Our Diatomaceous Earth is OMRI Listed® for organic use.
What type of Diatomaceous Earth is this?
Beware. Not all DE is the same. Our DE is made of Silicon Dioxide. This comes from a freshwater source. It is the same type that is used in food-grade diatomaceous earth. Other products made of Diatomite DE are made from unnatural sources.
Use DE to solve problems with crawling insects. Ants. Earwigs. Cockroaches. Silverfish. Crickets. Bedbugs. Centipedes and more.
Directions for Use:
- INDOOR USE: Lightly coat a thin layer of dust in the areas where these pests are found or may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath stoves, refrigerators, sinks, cabinets, garbage cans, around pipes and drains, window frames, and in attics and basements. Hit insects directly where possible. Repeat treatment as necessary.

Review RateExcellent product
DE is an excellent bug control. And, it is not a poison. I use it wherever I have to control pests including (primarily) my garden. It works until it is washed off by either sprinklers or rain. I love it!
Review RateSafer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth - Bed Bug, Ant, Crawling Insect Killer works better than anything else
For the first time this season I can finally walk out into my garden without being bit by ants. For the last 4 years I have had periods where the ants just overwhelm the garden and it was enter at your own risk. I ordered Safer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth - Bed Bug, Ant, Crawling Insect Killer and applied it. The results were immediate and I have now had no ants for 2 weeks. Finally able to spend time in my garden again.
Review RateWonderful and easy to use around pets.
This worked for me. We had used it previously but we lived in an apartment. Now we live in a house and have a big yard. I put the Diatomaceous Earth in a mustard bottle (one of the kinds like they use in restaurants) and squirted it in nooks and crannies in the concrete and ant hills. Bet those red ants won't bite me again! So far.....so good.

Review Rategreat shipping,packaging,and quick service.I bought this a few weeks ago,and the price was better than local stores.
Review RateFleas bit the dust with Diatomaceous EarthMy brother in Kansas tells me that his old tomcat has come out of his refuge in the bathroom sink to once again frolic on the living room carpet now the fleas have been conquered.
Review RateIt helps but it isn\'t 100%We have been battling bedbugs and a flea problem for months. We tried everything and then I heard about this. I bought 3 bags since I wasn't sure how much I would need. It's been a few months now of using the safr brand and I have gone through one whole bag, and I still have both bedbugs and fleas. I don't know what to do anymore. I will say it did help the bedbugs from crawling into bed with me a bit but I still see about 5 randomly every night. I don't sleep at night anymore which I think is why I know how well exactly this product is working. The majority of people go to sleep so they don't see what's actually going on. It did decrease the problem yes but there is still a problem and honestly, I don't think it's helping with the fleas at all.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Jenna,
This insect killing dust will work to kill insects that have ingested it in approximately 48 hours. When applying the product, we recommend lightly dusting areas where insect activity has been seen, such as cracks, crevices, around sinks and cabinets and other areas where insects travel.
To help eliminate bed bugs and fleas, we recommend dusting the product on the bedding areas and placing a sheet over the mattress. We apologize if the desired results have not been seen and would like to learn more about this experience.
Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-7-ORGANIC (1-855-767-4264) for additional assistance.
