Safer's Diatomaceous Earth is an all-natural pest control that targets and kills insects 48 hours after contact. This fine dust-like powder is sourced from crushed fossilized algae that are actually quite sharp to insects. When contacted these micro-shards create tears in the exoskeleton, causing the insect to dehydrate and eventually die within days. To use simply sprinkle powder along areas of infestation including where they live, this powder can be used indoors and outdoors for pest control.

Safer Diatomaceous Earth Insect Killer 4 Lb

Safer® Brand Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) provides pest control against a variety of crawling insects. This ready-to-use powder-like insecticide is super easy to use and can be applied to places where insects spend most of their time. Once insects come in contact with this powder, it immediately goes to work to kill them completely within 48 hours.

Safer® Brand D.E. is non-staining and has no odor, so you can confidently apply it in your home. D.E. also works outdoors to eliminate crawling insects as they try to sneak inside your home. Just keep in mind that it will need to be reapplied after watering or rain.

Note: This product is NOT Food Grade.


Diatomaceous earth is not like other insect killers on the market today. Insects cannot build up an immunity to D.E. since it works as a mechanical killer to kill insects on contact. In fact, this dust-like powder is made from crushed fossilized algae, a.k.a diatoms that come from freshwater sources. To people, it feels like a fine powder, but these tiny fossil shards are very sharp when insects with delicate exoskeletons encounter them. After application, insects cross through the powder, which tears into their exoskeletons, causing them to dehydrate, and they die within 48 hours.


D.E. can also be used to get rid of crawling insects found on the exterior of your home. Apply it in a band around the foundation of your home or business to kill any insects that cross through it. Just remember that D.E. only works to kill nuisance insects when dry, so you’ll need to reapply after rain or watering.
