Diatomaceous Earth - micronised Certified Organic
Diatomaceous earth is the perfect addition to your integrated pest management!
It works by absorbing the pests waxes and oils on their cuticle layer leading to death by dehydration. Due to diatomaceous insectacide's high silica content and extremely small particle size, it will also cause the pest to physically degrade due to the silica's shard like structure. This product is the finest grade DE product you can purchase.
For use to control slugs and fungus gnats, simply spread an even layer of diatomaceous fines across your soils surface, and at the bottom of your pot upon planting. Can be dusted on plants suffering from aphid, mealy bug, mites, fleas, ants and many more garden and household pests.
We advise you wear a mask and gloves when handling this product.
