Diatomaceous Earth is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of microscopic organisms called diatoms. Diatomaceous Earth is a light dust that clings easily to the bodies of insects as they walk or crawl over it. Unlike boric acid dusts that work best when ingested, Crawling Insect Control only requires contact with the insect to be effective. It absorbs the waxy cuticle surrounding the insect, causing the insect to dehydrate and die. Diatomaceous Earth is a natural, mechanical insecticide that is an excellent alternative to conventional chemicals

Diatomaceous Earth can also have a very good long term residual effect when applied to cracks and crevices. This long term protection and control of insects can be achieved due to Diatomaceous Earth controlling insects by physical means, not chemical, and therefore denying them the ability to build up a resistance to it in future generations.

Crawling Insect Control

Bugs: Intended for application with a hand duster, power duster or other similar means for application to areas where crawling insects are found.

Apply Crawling Insect Control to cracks and crevices with the use of a bulbous duster or other suitable equipment. Apply lightly and uniformly. A fine, light coating such as what you would see when powder or baking flour accidently drifts to the floor, is the most effective.

Indoor Use

Bugs: Cockroaches, Ants, Earwigs, Millipedes and Centipedes, Crickets and Silverfish. Lightly coat a thin layer of Crawling Insect Control in areas where these pests are found and may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath refrigerators, cabinets, stoves, garbage cans and in and around sewer pipes and drains, window frames and in attics and basements. Dust insects directly if possible. Repeat treatment regularly.

Fleas: Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas are suspected. Apply lightly to carpet, rake into fibers using a carpet rake or a garden rake. Leave the product in place for as long as possible then vacuum lightly. Reapply in 7-10 days as Diatomaceous Earth does not kill eggs.

Bedbugs: Dismantle bed. Use Crawling Insect Control in joints, crevices and where rungs are inserted. See that all interior areas are dusted. Dust mattresses especially folds and edges. All cracks and crevices in the bedroom should be treated.

Outdoor Use

Cockroaches, Earwigs, Grasshoppers, Ants, Crickets and other crawling insects: Lightly coat a thin layer of crawling insect control in areas where these insects are found such as patios, outdoor sills, window and door frames. Dust around foundations, along ant trails and around sewer pipes and drains. Move woodpiles away from the foundation as wood is a favorite hide out for many insects. Repeat treatment as necessary.

Crawling insects

Insects are thought to represent around 90% of the diversity of animal life on earth. There are over a million currently described species and an estimated 10 million species in total.

The majority of insects have wings in the adult stage and move around mainly by flying. Some insects, such as cockroaches, have wings but are reluctant flyers, preferring to crawl to find food and shelter. Termites and ants are mainly wingless, so most of their behaviour involves crawling, and produce ‘reproductives’ that are temporarily winged during a short breeding season.

Other insects, such as the flea and louse, are wingless and can only crawl or jump to move around. Crawling insects here refers to insects that are perceived as pests mainly due to their crawling behaviour.

Insects as pests

Crawling insects and arachnids are regarded as pests for a number of reasons:

  • Bites cause pain and swelling from the body’s immune reaction to the ‘foreign material’ from the insect/arachnid mouth injected with the bite;

  • Stings cause pain and an allergic reaction from the venom injected into the skin.

  • Insect bites can transmit a large number of serious bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases to humans and domestic animals;

  • Allergens produced by infestations in the home can cause asthma;

  • Contamination of food, water and surfaces by mechanical transmission of diseases, in homes and businesses;

  • Consumption of and damage to stored food products in homes and businesses;

  • Damage to fabric products such as clothing and furniture;

  • Damage to wooden structures and products.
