Description

Safer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth

Leave bugs dead in the dust. That’s exactly what you’ll see with Safer® Brand’s Ant and Crawling Insect Killer. And you don’t have to worry about applying chemicals to get the job done.

Kills crawling insects within 48 hours.

Once you apply Ant and Crawling Insect Killer where you have a crawling insect problem, you’ll see insect activity stop in minutes. Infestation issues in a couple of days. Dual action. Kills insects by ingestion and dehydration. You can use it inside your home or outside on patios and walkways. It lasts as long as it’s dry.

Details on how Diatomaceous Earth works to kill crawling insects.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a dust-like product that contains the crushed fossilized algae (diatoms) from fresh water. These crushed diatoms feel like powder when we rub it in our hand. But it’s very sharp to insects with delicate exoskeletons. When you apply DE, dust is ingested by the crawling insect or the insect crosses through the powder. The DE will cut their exoskeleton. This causes the insect to dehydrate and die. Insects cannot develop a resistance to it since there are no chemicals to which they can build up immunity.

What type of Diatomaceous Earth is this?

Beware. Not all DE is the same. Our DE is made of Silicon Dioxide. This comes from a freshwater source. It is the same type that is used in food-grade diatomaceous earth. Other products made of Diatomite DE are made from unnatural sources.

Use DE to solve problems with crawling insects. Ants. Earwigs. Cockroaches. Silverfish. Crickets. Bedbugs. Centipedes and more.

Directions for Use:

  • INDOOR USE: Lightly coat a thin layer of dust in the areas where these pests are found or may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath stoves, refrigerators, sinks, cabinets, garbage cans, around pipes and drains, window frames, and in attics and basements. Hit insects directly where possible. Repeat treatment as necessary.
  • OUTDOOR USE: Lightly coat the areas where pests are found or may hide including windows, door frames, and sills, and outside of entrance ways. Repeat treatment as necessary.
  • For full instructions depending on indoor/outdoor use and specific plants and insects, please refer to the Instructions link to the left.

Unable to review product yet since only put down today By sannsal

I put down this product today on my lawn because of having chiggers. I also put it down on soil that I will plant vegetables in during the next couple of days. From what I've read from your comments below, I'm not sure now if I can plant these vegetables. I have tomatoes, swiss chard, herbs, and cucumbers. Please let me know asap if at all able. Thank you!

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

While this product can be used outdoors around cracks and crevices, it is not recommended for use in a vegetable garden as it is not a food grade product. We recommend watering the garden until there is no Diatomaceous Earth left behind.

Question about the safety of using this product in my vegetable garden By Melissa

Is the Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth safe to use in my vegetable garden? I bought it and used it on my garden recently. Will it be safe to eat my vegetables when they are ready to harvest? Is it safe to use around my dog?

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Melissa,

This product is not recommended for use in a vegetable garden. We recommend rinsing the vegetables and the garden area to ensure there is no Diatomaceous Earth left behind. This product does not impact plantings or soil health going forward.

While the product can be used around pets, we recommend keeping them out of the area while it is being applied and until the dust has settled.

We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-7-ORGANIC (1-855-767-4264) with any questions or for additional assistance.

used the wrong diatomaceous earth for garden By Marie

I accidentally used this brand on my garden. Is it safe to remove the soil and add more soil or is the garden unsafe to eat from.

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We recommend removing the Diatomaceous Earth from the garden and thoroughly rinsing the vegetables. This product is designed for use both indoors and outdoors but should be kept to a crack and crevice application.

Works well plus cat question By Jen

It serves its purpose. Its not an end to issues but for sure helps. My only question is can this be put outside around your house and is this harmful to cats?

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We recommend using this product with caution around cats. When using outdoors, we recommend lightly coating a thin layer of the product in areas where insects are found such as patios, window and door frames and outdoor sills. Apply around foundations, along ant trails, and around sewer pipes and drains.

What else is in there? By Lori

The main ingredient is listed as being around 77% of the total --and nothing else is mentioned. I want to know what else is in there. I think it's interesting that there's no mention of what makes up the other 23% of the contents. What is it? Shouldn't all the ingredients be listed?

Response From Havahart®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

This product is mined from natural sources found throughout the world. The ingredients that are listed on the label is what is required by the EPA. All other ingredients are proprietary.

Please don't waste your money By Smokey

This is the worst product I have seen yet I have had it down for 30 days and still have bed bugs I have followed all the instructions would not really recommend this to anybody

Response From Havahart®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We are sorry to hear that the desired results were not seen and would like the opportunity to provide assistance.

For best results, we recommend taking the bed apart so that all joints, seams, cracks, and channels can be treated. Applications should be made to the mattress and any cracks and crevices or other hiding places in the room such as picture frames, baseboards, and outlets.  

Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-7-ORGANIC (1-855-767-4264) with additional questions.
