Organic Pest Control That Works


Spring has finally arrived. time to get outside and do some spring cleaning and a few chores. Spring around here brings bugs. I mean crawling yucky bugs like ants and other unwelcome critters. No worries though, I use diatomaceous earth for organic pest control.

Sprinkle where bugs live and crawl. That's it. Works on ants, beetles, roaches, bedbugs,fleas and more.

The package says it kills in 24 hours. I saw a big reduction but it took a little longer for all signs of my ant problem to dissappear.

Use gloves when handling this, not because it's toxic but becuse it's an irritant on your skin

      I was boiling water with baking soda, salt & cream of tartar to get lime scale & coffee discoloration out of some pots. I found a BUNCH of dead gnats in each open pot! Bonanza! They seem to want water but then drown in it. I put an open cup of water near my plants. Maybe I can get some that way.
