One Happy Homeowner
By in Lubbock, Texas on 07/15/2013
I had an invasion of little ants on my kitchen cabinets around the sink area. I kept killing them with liquid dish soap and they kept coming. Didn't want too but out of desperation I sprinkled Sevin 5 insect Dust over the area but it didn't completely stop them and who likes poison on their cabinets? Just one thin application of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth around the back of the sink and they were gone and haven't been back. I may not be able to pronounce it but it works great.

Best Stuff Out There
By Jennifer in Louisville,KY on 10/11/2013
We bought this for fleas, silverfish and roaches. It was great because we have little children and dogs. It worked quickly and it didn't bother the kids or pets. I highly recommed this stuff to anyone. Note: A little does go a long way.

Millions of millipedes
By Nelscine in Atlanta, Georgia on 07/08/2014
I previously used Diatomaceous Earth to control an out of control ant population many years ago. This time I was overrun with millipedes inside my home. Within a day, they were curling up and drying up! Within a week, I saw only an occasional millipede crawling. I like this product because I have a very curious yorkie and needed something pet safe! I searched high and low and could only get it quickly from Domyownpestcontrol - rec'd within 2 days of placing order- other sites promised 7-10 day delivery! 5star customer service!

This is a great product that I dusted on my garage floor. Fleas were mostly gone in two days. All residuals gone in four. I highly recommend this product even for careful pet application (protect animal's face during dusting.)

QCan people take the insect dust diatomaceous food grade OMRI?
I take food grade from wolfcreek and recently purchased a bag of the insect dust, the lady in the store said yes, but I do not see any mixing instructions.
AThan manufacturer St Gabriels says NO. This product is manufactured on the same machinery that produces things you should not ingest.
QCan I put Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth on the herbs in my herb garden?

QIf Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is used before rain, will it be useless?
AFood Grade Diatomaceous Earth can be washed away if it is applied in open areas and it rains outdoors. Most folks choose to apply Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth directly in cracks and crevices around doors, windows, vents, places where cables, pipes and wire enter through the structure rather than all over the ground. This keeps the product protected and it keeps the product where pests are known to try and gain entrance into your home.

QDoes this brand of diatomaceous earth also kill bed bugs?
AYes. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth will kill bedbugs. Diatomaceous Earth should not be the only product used in the fight against bed bugs as it does not kill quick enough. For best results, use Bedlam or Bedlam Plus in addition to the dust product.

QWe have fleas inside our home, do we have to spread Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth all over the carpets?
We have spread it all over the carpets and the dust is all over the place because we kick it up when walking through the house. Do we have to vacuum up the old before applying new? Our holistic doctor said to apply it once a week for 4 weeks. We are still getting bites how do we stop the fleas?
AYou can apply Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth under carpet. We recommend to go ahead and vacuum the carpets. This help to bring the fleas up to the surface and in contact with the D.E. You want to stick with applications to, cracks and crevices; behind and beneath appliances, cabinets, and garbage areas; around sewer pipes, drains, foundations, and windows; in attics and basements; on patios; along baseboards; under carpeting; in and around pet bedding and sleeping quarters. You can use Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR inside your home. please check out our video How to Get Rid of Fleas.

QWhat if my dog licked some of the Organic Diatomaceous Earth?
A We recommend that your dog not be present during the application of Organic Diatomaceous Earth and until the dust settles. It is suggested to apply in areas that are inaccessible to pets. If your dog has licked the product and you notice any sudden changes in health/behavior, contact your local vet for treatment advice. You should refer to the MSDS for more safety information.

QWho is the expert answering these posts?
With all due respect, the answers to most of these concerns are the exact opposite of hundeds of sites that have tested DE in laboratories. They found the effects on humans and pets to be OK. Bedbugs can be gone and ingestion is OK to a degree. I see that this responder always gives an alternative product that they sell. What I suggest for those who have questionable concerns is to visit diamaceousearth.com. It has a Veterinarian on site and every question is answered without a biased sales pitch. If this post is not published, I have multiple others to post it. Not to slander My Own Pest Control ... but to merely viewers to read what is said, and make a sensible judgement call of their own. I have 11780 views on one of my sites, I believe that the Silicon level is 80-85%, according to every study I viewed. I found no distinction between "for food or not for food" from over 50 articles.
AWe have a team of experts that answer our thousands of Q&A posts at DoMyOwnPestControl. Regarding DE or any other product, we must recommend that products be used according to the product labels for safety and legality. The product label is what is legally approved for use, and that is what we must recommend for both the safety of our customers and the integrity of our company. We are not independent researchers or scientists in a laboratory and cannot make claims or recommendations that are not in accordance with the approved product labels. We hope you understand our policy and practice regarding this matter.

QCan I apply diatomaceous earth to the tops of carpets after using Precor IGR concentrate?
AYes, you can apply Precor IGR, allow it to fully dry, and then apply Diatomaceous Earth. Diatomaceous Earth is labeled for fleas and other crawling insects and will definitely help but because it is slow acting you will most likely need to treat with another product first to help get the flea and ticks under control. DE takes about a week to kill an insect and in that time the insects can continue to bite, breed and lay eggs. You can apply Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth under carpet. We recommend to go ahead and vacuum the carpets. This help to bring the fleas up to the surface and in contact with the D.E. You want to stick with applications to, cracks and crevices; behind and beneath appliances, cabinets, and garbage areas; around sewer pipes, drains, foundations, and windows; in attics and basements; on patios; along baseboards; under carpeting; in and around pet bedding and sleeping quarters. Please check out our video How to Get Rid of Fleas. We would recommend that you treat with a product such as Aline Flea Insectcide with IGR which will give you a fast knockdown of the biting adults and residual control of the developing fleas and ticks. It is very important to vacuum immediately before the treatment and every day or every other day for the following 14 days. At the end of the 14 day period you will most likely need to re-treat to get rid of any stragglers. You must also treat all of your animals with an approved flea/tick product so that you are not re-infesting the house. Precor 2000 is safe to use in a house with pets as long as you follow the product label. All pets should be out of the area that is being treated and they can return as soon as the area is dry.

QI have bedbugs, cockroaches and spiders many bugs is Organic Diatomaceous Earth what I need?
A When treating for bedbugs and roaches we recommend using one of our kits specific for those tough to treat insects. The Bed Bug Kit and Roach Control Kits contain the necessary products to do a full treatment. Unfortunately there is not 1 product that will fully eradicate a bed bug or a roach infestation. Both insects require sanitation practices and multiple products for treatment. Please look on our Bed Bug Kit and Roach Control Kit pages listed below for options or contact us at 1-866-581-7378 Mon - Friday 9am-5pm EST to speak to a representative for your treatment options.

QHow long to leave Organic Diatomaceous Earth on carpet before sweeping.
AAfter applying Organic Diatomaceous Earth onto carpet you want to immediately sweep or rake the product into the carpet. This will help incourage the pest to come in contact with the active ingredient. Be sure to vaccum shortly after application.

QIs this safe to use in a vegetable garden?
Similar to herb garden question- is it safe for use near vegetable garden or in the soil of vegetables in big pots? What about on vegetable plants? Is there a better product to purchase if goal is to keep bugs from eating plants?
AThis product is not labeled for use on herbs or other edible plants. We do carry may products that can be used on edible plants. Which one is best for your use will depend on the insects you are targeting and which specific edible plants you are treating.
06/06/2014 Don from Pa.
QCan Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth be mixed with water and sprayed on?
AThe Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth label does not give instructions for mixing with water so we would not advise of this use. It is a dust that is applied directly in cracks and crevices around doors, windows, vents, places where cables, pipes and wire enter through the structure rather than all over the ground. This keeps the product protected and it keeps the product where pests are known to try and gain entrance into your home.
