How to Use Diatomaceous Earth as a Natural Pesticide
 

Diatomaceous earth is an effective insecticide for killing exposed insects. It works to wear down the insect's exterior skeleton and then dehydrates the insect. Since it's a mechanical reaction, insects cannot build up immunity to diatomaceous earth. While some insects may replenish moisture rather quickly, they all eventually succumb given enough exposure to the dehydrating properties of diatomaceous earth. Diatomaceous earth is an effective all natural pest control against ants, fleas, roaches, lice, grasshoppers, mites, ticks and other insects. Read the how to articles below and learn how you can start using one of the best natural pesticides.

How to Use Diatomaceous Earth Around The House
 

Since diatomaceous earth (DE) is non-toxic and organic, it can be used for a variety of ways inside your home. The absorbent qualities of DE make it great for deodorizing your garbage can or litter box. It can also be used to clean up grease and oil stains in the garage or on the carpet. Many people like to mix DE powder with milk, water, or lemon juice to polish various metals such as silver or brass. DE is great for natural pest control and is effective against gnats, ants, and even cockroaches in your home. The absorbent particles attach to insect exoskeletons, making them dehydrate quickly.
