How Does Urbanns Diatomaceous Earth For Pest Control Work?

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) for Pest Control by Urbanns is a fantastic organic insecticide. It is made from 100 % Natural Fresh water Siliceous Fossil Flour and Natural Palygorskite. Siliceous fossil flour as it’s known, was used very effectively for about one hundred years before chemical pesticides were introduced. Since chemical pesticides tend to leave residue in our food supply and poison the heck out of mammals, bees, fish and any wildlife they come in contact with, Siliceous fossil Flour is back in fashion in agricultural circles as it does not contain any toxic chemical. Natural Palygorskite is added with Siliceous Fossil flour for immediate action. Natural Palygorskite has needle shape structure and is a sticky material which helps to penetrate pest and get stick to them for faster action. The product has been developed together with a European Consultant for European market.

Diatom is a hard shelled algae

The insecticidal quality of Urbanns DE for Pest Control is due to the razor sharp edges of the diatom remains. When it comes in contact with the insects, the sharp edges lacerate the bug’s waxy exoskeleton and then the powdery Siliceous fossil flour absorbs the body fluids causing death from dehydration. Said more simply, Urbanns DE kills insects by drying then up. You’ll see how drying DE is if you handle it with bare hands.

Eco Friendly and Natural Solution for Insects

While DE is a death sentence for insects, it will not harm you or your pets. Since DE is not chemical in nature and works mechanically, pests cannot build resistance to it, unlike chemical pesticides. DE also offers the added benefits of supplying soil with micronutrients as it break down.

Diatomaceous Earth Bed Bug Powder Dust

DE is very dusty and can cause lung problems if breathed heavily, so when applying it dry always wear a good dust mask. Also wash your hands with water after application as it can leave hand dry. It has to be spread evenly on a surface where insects crawl to come in contact with them and should not accumulate at places. It should look like dust when spread on the floor or any other area.
