Diatomaceous Earth, also known as "DE" is a very fine, white powder. It is made from fossilised remains of microorganisms called diatoms. DE is pure silicon dioxide (SiO2) and is non-toxic.

Food grade Diatomaceous Earth is often used as a mineral-based mechanical pesticide in gardens. It has sharp microscopic edges which cut and dehydrate pests with exoskeletons.

Earthworms are not harmed by Diatomaceous Earth, so Diatomaceous Earth can also be safely used in Worm Compost Bins.

As Diatomaceous Earth does not contain any toxic chemicals, it is safe to the touch for humans and animals.

Diatomaceous Earth also has added benefits when mixed in potting media as it has the ability to retain excess fertiliser and release it gradually to plant roots. It also increases porosity, drainage and aeration in potting media.

Target Pests:
Ants, Aphids, Beetles, Centipedes, Cockroaches, Flies, Fungus Gnats, Grubs, Maggots, Mealybugs, MIllipedes, Termites, Thrips, Ticks, etc.
