Diatomaceous Earth

All Natural Bed Bug Killing Pesticide

If you still have bed bugs, remember they like to not be far from “dinner.”   Dinner is you!   One of the primary tools in fighting bed bugs is a pesticidal dusting powder that has Diatomaceous Earth (DE) as one of its ingredients.  The EPA will not allow Diatomaceous Earth by itself to be a registered as a pesticide even though many call DE a natural bed bug killer.  DE comes in too many grades and has too many varied uses so it must have an approved additive to be EPA registered.  The additives are usually a bait, a pesticide like Pyrethins, or some formula to get the bug or insect to eat or crawl in it.   Diatomaceous Earth is often used to kill bed bugs mattress by dusting the mattress and encasing it in a bedbug cover.

The bugs then die from internal or external lacerations and dehydration per the manufacturers.  Since bed bugs eat/drink your blood, they really don’t eat the DE, EPA registered or not, like other insects.  So why is DE effective on bed bugs?

What gets  complicated and hard for people to understand is that pure food grade DE (98%) is not harmful to ingest or breath by people or pets, whereas, less than food grade Diatomaceous Earth with baits (EPA registered) is harmful and not safe to breath or ingest by pets and people.   Bed bugs are easily killed when they crawl through Diatomaceous Earth.

Diatomaceous earth is a Bed Bug Killer!

The waydiatomaceous earth works as a bed bug killer, is that bed bugs must literally crawl through the DE dust.  The dust attaches to the sticky exoskeleton of the bedbug where serves as very fine shards of glass that literally cuts into the exoskeleton as the bedbug moves.  Once the exoskeletons are cut, the bed bug ultimately dehydrates and dies.   Bedbugs become so activated by CO2, heat and the human scent they will crawl through the dust to get at meal or go after a female bedbug.

Diatomaceous earth is Fossilized!

Diatomaceous earth has no shelf life.  It just keeps on working as long as it is dry!  Bedbugs never become immune to Diatomaceous Earth because it is fossilized or made of minerals.
