Safer Brand Diatomaceous Earth
Can’t get rid of those pesky earwigs? Diatomaceous earth is a food-grade sourced pesticide that is made from crushed fossilized algae. Though it feels like a fine powder, it actually is tiny fossil shards that are sharp when the insects with delicate exoskeletons encounter them, and ultimately tears their exoskeletons and dehydrates them. This product is good for ants and crawling insects, such as cockroaches, ants, fleas and more. Guaranteed to work inside and outdoors, a 4 lb. bag retails for $11.99 at www.saferbrand.com.
