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.

Best option for the home! By Rita

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.

Works excellent. By Joe

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.

It worked! By Nelly

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!

Die Die Die Fleas!!!! By Reneé

We have been battling fleas for over a year and just seemed like it was never ending, we have tried everything from chemicals from the feed store to cedar chips.. it was early Sunday morning and I figured I would just Google until I read something different I don't remember the exact words I put in Google that made diatomaceous earth pop, remind you I'm at the point where I was just about​ to give up and sale my house. Then I started to read reviews on the website that you guys backed it up and said it works just have to be patient depending on the infestation well, I went to home Depot and waited for them to open bout diatomaceous earth came home and started sprinkling it. My fleas were so bad that my legs were covered so I put some on my hands and rubbed my legs down and then I saw the miracle I was waiting for the fleas just started to dry up and fall off.. I am very thankful for this product and will pass it along. It works it really does 5 stars.. oh and my fleas are gone!

doesn't work for me By frustrated

I am infested with fleas in my house, they keep multiplying even tho i spread your brand of diatomaceous earth all over the house, they are getting worse, i don't know what to do now because i can't afford an exterminator and i have pets so i don't know what to do, i am at my wits end.

Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and would like to learn more about it, in order to better assist. Once insects have ingested or crossed through this powder, it begins to work on cutting their exoskeleton, causing them to dehydrate and die within 48 hours.

Saved me from being eaten by bugs By Robyn

I bought diatomaceous earth a few weeks ago from this company. My apartment had a sickening cockroach problem and poison wasn't helping and bait made it worse. I sprinkled this around and voila! Also, the shipping was fast. Very satisfied.

SAFER Brand is excellent! By Kell

We've had a bad problem with bed bugs starting back in June 2016. We're not sure how it started and were totally unfamiliar with how bad it could get. My sons had bites up and down their ankles! We hired a local pest control company and they charged us a lot of money to come in to heat treat our entire condo (which was a huge hassle too, I might add). It worked......for about a month or two. Then we found bed bugs again! I was sick about it. Spending so much money and STILL to have bed bug infestation!? I was complaining about it and my neighbor told me he had had this problem too and used SAFER Brand Diatomaceous Earth. I bought some online that very day after hearing his success story. Well, now we have another success story, I am thrilled to report. Our problems with bed bugs finally seem to be over and we have SAFER to thank....and, at a fraction of the cost of a pest control company. The SAFER product is easy to use and non-toxic too. Thanks SO much, SAFER!
