This highly efficient woodlice and insect killer powder is composed of silicon dioxide, or 'diatomaceous earth', which is a 100% natural product containing no chemicals, therefore insects cannot develop immunity to it.
What is it?
Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring soft crumbly sedimentary rock containing fossil remains of diatoms, a type of algae whose characteristic is an extremely hard cell wall made of silicon dioxide or silica. Silicon dioxide is a compound renowned for its hardness; its abrasive properties make it suitable for a variety of applications, including for use as a highly effective insect killer.
How does it work?
The microscopic sharp edges of the diatoms cut into the insect's exoskeleton (or shell) as the insect comes into contact with the powder. The insect loses body fluid through these abrasions, and dies of dehydration.
How is it used?
The powder should be distributed where crawling insects tend to group or transit. It is excellent for eliminating woodlice. Visible bugs can be vacuumed away and the powder should be applied with a brush to insect harborages, which are those cracks and crevices where insects tend to hide.
