What is Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth, also known as DE, is a naturally occurring mineral dust composed of crushed fossilized microorganisms called diatoms. It is one of the most versatile and effective materials on the market for combating pests and pathogens, making it an excellent choice for organic gardens and greenhouses. DE's unique properties make it highly absorbent and capable of drawing out bacteria, irritants, and water from the air. In agricultural applications, DE contains tiny sharp edges that are able to pierce through even the toughest of insects' exoskeletons - making this a non-toxic compound and a certified method of controlling unwanted pests. With its wide range of uses from agricultural to cosmetic applications.

Promotes porosity

The silica-rich shells of these tiny organisms give this chalk-like substance remarkable porosity and abrasive quality. It is often paired with additional substances, diatomaceous earth is used as a medium for growing plants. It can store fertilizers and subsequently release them to the roots. This makes it an excellent growing medium for hydroponic containers and bonsai culture, as does the porosity. To improve drainage and air circulation in the root zone, mix it with potting soil.

Control mite population

In gardens near wooded areas, ticks can be a major nuisance. Pets may become infected when they play on your lawn since many wild animals that transmit these bugs leave them there. They are not only annoying, but they may also spread illnesses including Lyme disease, Colorado tick fever, tularemia, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and others. Diatomaceous earth should be liberally sprinkled throughout the entire yard, paying specific attention to the lawn. During the flea season, do this once per month with an applicator.

It’s Eco-Friendly!

Eco-friendly pesticides such as diatomaceous earth are important for protecting our environment from the risks of hazardous chemicals. Conventional pesticides can cause long-term environmental damage, including the destruction of wildlife habitats and the rampant use of water resources. In contrast, eco-friendly pesticides are safer and more sustainable alternatives that do not put wildlife in danger or degrade the environment. Diatomaceous earth is also naturally occurring, so it is more likely to break down than its chemical counterparts and has fewer lasting side effects on both flora and fauna. Adopting organic pesticide solutions is an investment in the future of our planet, ensuring healthier soil, ecosystems, and crops for generations to come.
