Jagriti writes,

Mosquito control product containing diatomaceous earth?


Diatomaceous earth is not a good choice when it comes to mosquito control because DE will not adhere to the places mosquitoes like to land such as the underside of leaves on trees and bushes. Also, DE can take a week or more to kill an insect and in that time those insects can continue to bite, breed and lay eggs and in the case of mosquitoes this is just not acceptable. Essentria IC3 would be a much better choice.
