Earwigs, Centipedes, Silverfish, Cockroaches and Ants:
Apply in areas where these pests are found or may hide, such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath refrigerators, cabinets, stoves and in attics and basements. Dust insects directly if possible. Repeat regularly.
Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas are suspected.
Dust into joints and channels of beds. If hollow, see that the interior of the framework is well dusted. Mattresses should be dusted, especially tufts, edges or folds. All cracks and crevices in the room should be treated.
Ants, Cockroaches, Earwigs and Other Crawling Insects:
Apply in areas where pests are found such as patios, window and door frames, outdoor sills. Dust around foundations and around sewer pipes and drains. Repeat as necessary.
This product is not to be confused with the D.E. sold for swimming pool filters (Diatomite), which has been heat treated to increase the crystalline silica content. Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen.
