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.

Review RateBedbug solution
4lbs will handle just about any 2 bedroom, 2 bath house. Getting a hand sprayer is a great and handy tool; allowing your to place or dust anywhere that's needed. If you cannot afford it use a small paint brush.

I have waited over 48 house and still nothing. You say the stuff is going to work but its doing nothing at all. I need Help!Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like to provide assistance.
Bedbugs, fleas, ants, or other insects that crawl through this product will die within 48 hours of contact. For fleas, thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting, and wherever fleas are suspected. We recommend keeping the product down as long as the flea activity is seen to give them a chance to crawl through it.

Review RateHave fleas...Buy it!!
Wow...It really works. Used for fleas in the yard and house. Applied and 3 days later it rained. I thought to myself that was a waste of time, but NO within a few days no more fleas jumping on my legs. I did not reapply after rain. I have hardwood floors. When treating in the house I spread on floor and waited 3 days before I cleaned DE off floor. Received item within a few days with regular shipping.
Review RateThe best I've tried
By far the best product... Starts to work instantly... Best part about it; it's non toxic and can use around babies and pets...
Review RateSafer brand diatomaceous earth really works.
I got bed bugs over two years ago from a day care. I didn't even know they truly existed. Other than in the saying; sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite. When I first seen them, I thought they were a tick or other outside bug that had gotten in the house. After finding several, I looked on internet and realize we had bed bugs. I tried all kinds of over the counter sprays and bombs. I cleaned and sprayed for over a year but the bed bugs just got worse. I got rid of furniture, mattresses, carpets, toys, covers, pillows and clothes. I purchased mattress protectors for the new mattresses. I cleaned inside dresser drawers, closets, light switches, electrical sockets, picture frames, etc.... I deep cleaned regularly. I even emptied the food out of the deep freezer to placed items in there for months. But I still had bed bugs. I heard about diatomaceous earth so went to a local hardware store and purchased some. I put this brown dirt everywhere in the house. I let it stay down for over a week. It did seem to help so continued to use this dirt for the next few months. Unfortunately, I still had bed bugs. I purchased bug-away and bed bug bully. These did help but was expensive. And I still had bed bugs, not as many but still had them. A couple months ago I purchased Safer brand diatomaceous earth. I was glad that it was white dirt and not brown like the last kind I had bought. I put the Safer brand diatomaceous earth everywhere. I also continued using the bed bug bully to spray on things that I couldn't put the dirt on. I am very happy to say that I haven't seen a bed bug or had any bites in over a month! My daughter had a roach problem and after spreading the Safer brand diatomaceous earth for about a month, she no longer has roaches. It may be messy but it definitely works! I will continue to use Safer brand diatomaceous earth for a year just to make sure I never see a bed bug again!!!
Review RateBest option for the home!
I had a bad bout of fleas for a month. I am allergic and the bites have me looking as though Im being tortured. Additionally, I have a one year old baby and a cat. The safest option was a priority and this was a blessing. Within hours I noticed a huge difference. After one day, I had no more bites. And completely rid of them in 2 days altogether.

Review RateWorks excellent.
Works excellent. Will kill just about all nasty parasites(mites, bedbugs, etc) as well as everyday pests. Whenever I, my fam, or pets have had a bug problem over the years, we just go to Home Depot across the street and buy a bag.
Review RateIt worked!
I all of a sudden had ants in my apartment throughout the bathroom and then they spread to the kitchen. I tried this stuff because it was more natural than other options. After 2 days I went from constantly seeing ants to seeing only 1 or 2 a day. I will do another dust of it. The bag is so big that I brought some over to my mom's house. I hope this helps her too!
