Kills Insects Within 48 Hours

Kills Insects Within 48 Hours

Are crawling insects a problem in your home? Safer® Home Diatomaceous Earth Ant & Crawling Insect Killer is the solution for eliminating ants, fleas, bedbugs, cockroaches, silverfish, earwigs, and other crawling insects without the use of harsh chemical sprays. After making contact with or ingesting this powder, insects die within 48 hours.

How it Works

Safer® Home Diatomaceous Earth is a powder 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 insects. It shreds insects' exoskeletons as they move across it or ingest it. Insects become dehydrated and die within 48 hours of contact. Large infestations can take a few days for insects to make contact.

How to Use

This product is suitable for application both indoors and outdoors. Reapply after rain or watering to replace the powder that has washed away.

Tried this product for the first time. Have used it for a couple of weeks now on my front interlock patio where there were at least 10 to 15 ant hills. I applied this product approx. 5 or 6 times over the two weeks and it is not effective. Today I went out to look and there were at least 15 ant hills still, not necessarily the same ones but still....I suppose I should somehow mark them so I know for sure. However, definitely not getting rid of them.

Frustrated by ant needed & safety issues
4
Apr 1, 2021
I bought two 3 bags but had only my hand to spread powdery substance over large overgrown area to kill fleas for cats and humans. I will need another six bags to even begin to cover area. I’m on social security and can’t afford that. Secondly I was told by local animal control that it was safe for humans and animals. Your operator said I had to remove my outside cats for 24 hrs. Which I can’t do. Now I’m not so sure if I should buy more even if I could find a way to afford. Also I didn’t initially know that I had to go thru another corporation to reach Safer until I checked my bill. I’m no computer person at 73 so really had me frustrated. Good phone service once I found it. Thank you for listening to me.

Not working on flea infestation

Jan 14, 2020
I'm giving this product a 3 for now because I do not know how long it takes for it to kill fleas in a severely infested house. Is there a schedule I need to start making? I put this on my carpet but I still see fleas popping continuously

It can take 24-48 hours for insects to die after coming in contact with this product. The product will have no effect on larvae or eggs, so multiple methods may be needed to eliminate an infestation. Please contact us directly at 855-767-4264 with any questions, we're happy to help!

Diatomaceous Earth has many uses. One: I use it in my garden to keep the slugs from eating my plants. Just sprinkle a little at the base of stems.

I recently bought diatomaceous earth for flea control. I'm so happy to have a more natural option than the harsh chemicals both for inside and out.

I purchased this a month ago and the ants have stopped harassing my sugar glider and her food. I am glad I found something that is safe for my pet and four year old daughter!

Q&A

What percentage of this product is crystalline silica?
Question by: EB on Jun 10, 2023, 11:26 AM
Our Diatomaceous Earth is non-crystalized as it is the amorphous variety. The product contains less than 1% Crystalline Silicon Dioxide.
Answer by: Lauren Potter (Admin) on Jun 12, 2023, 1:55 PM
This product lists diatomaceous earth at 85% and 15% "other ingredients". How is this product different than Food Grade DE? What is in the 15% other ingredients?
Question by: Heather Hall on May 4, 2023, 10:21 AM
Our DE is naturally sourced, and therefore there will be other ingredients found alongside the silicon dioxide (minerals and oxides). These ingredients are naturally present in the DE and are not additives.

Because this product is intended for use as an insecticide, it is not considered food grade.
