Kills Insects Within 48 Hours
Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer takes care of pest problems without harsh chemicals. The diatomaceous earth insect killing powder is made up of finely crushed algae fossils. Though it feels soft to the touch for us, each microscopic piece is like a tiny shard of glass to small insects. As a mechanical killer, it shreds insects' exoskeletons as they move across it or ingest it, killing them within 48 hours by dehydration.
How to Use It
Bottle has a convenient pour spout for reaching tight spaces. Sprinkle the Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer diatomaceous earth powder in areas where you suspect insect activity, or spread it as a barrier to entry points in your home. This includes areas such as:
- Sidewalk cracks
- Behind or around appliances
- Under sinks

After application, simply wait for the product to target the insects. Large infestations can sometimes take a few days for insects to make contact. Remember to reapply after rain or watering to replace the diatomaceous earth that has washed away.
