What is diatomaceous earth for bed bugs?

Our Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is crushed up fossils of fresh water organisms and marine life. To insects it acts as shards of glass that would cut their exoskeleton causing them to dehydrate and die.

It is 25B exempt under federal EPA standards and does not require registration. It is a natural product used in eliminating bed bugs.

Our All Stop DE-Stroy Eco Dust is a food grade diatomaceous earth powder. It is made of crushed fossils of fresh water organisms and marine life.

It is made to cut the exoskeleton of bed bugs like shards of glass causing the bed bugs to dehydrate and die and is also commonly used as a natural pesticide for animals.

Our food grade diatomaceous earth will not kill the bed bug on contact, but the bug will die within the next couple of hours after making contact with the dust. It is a great tool against bed bugs because as long as it is present, it is working. If you sweep or vaccuum the dust up, just apply some more once done to keep the effective bed bug killing dust present and working.

Diatomaceous Earth is one of the most powerful tools when combatting bed bugs because you don’t have to hunt them down or seek them out. You can apply this dust where ever necassary — the bed, bedframe, mattress, head boards, base boards, cracks, crevices and even electrical outlets where they may be hiding in the walls.

Electrical outlets are actually a common place for bed bugs to hide. They like the warmth and frequencies that the wires inside the walls give off. Sprinkle a little dust in and around the outlet to give you extra bed bug killing power where you normally could not get it.
