Diatomaceous Earth for the Garden
Pure Freshwater Diatomaceous Earth and is OMRI listed for
organic use. It is made up of tiny fossilized water plants
that are ground into a fine white powder. On a microscopic
level, these tiny, sharp particles that will help you keep
your garden organic and kill many pests that would love to do
damage to your garden plants, vegetables and flowers! It's
known to kill ants and other soft-bodied insects by scratching
their exoskeleton, and by doing so, will dehydrate them
causing them to die.
You can use a sifter or make a shaker with an empty coffee can by putting some holes in the bottom and shake diatomaceous earth onto your garden. Sifters are much easier to work with!
Just sift some around and even on your plants and you will be bug free. After you water or if it rains just reapply!
These broccoli plants are side by side in the garden!
See an ant hill? Just sprinkle some right on the ant hill and
soon they will be dead and gone!
DE will also control creepy crawlers such as snails and slugs. They crawl over it and it dries them up very nicely to protect your tomato plants!
So just put a thin layer of DE around the base of your plants and use the sifter or can to dust the leafs and your plants are protected and you don't need to worry about bugs and feel good that there are no chemicals on your plants and veggies!
Words of wisdom
1. Wear gloves as DE will dry your hands up!
2. Don't breath DE dust as it will irritate your lungs.
Don't freak out about this! I mean you don't go around inhaling flour dust or baby powder dust! Just use common sense!
3. Make sure you are using FOODGRADE DE not pool grade, big difference!
