What is diatomaceous earth ?

Diatomaceous earth is a natural product often used for pest control and environmental protection. It is a substance formed from diatoms, fossilised microscopic algae rich in silica. Its texture resembles that of a fine, light, white powder, and it is completely safe for humans and animals, making it an attractive option for domestic use.

 

Diatomaceous earth, a natural insecticide

Diatomaceous earth has formidable drying, dehydrating and abrasive properties for insects and other parasites. The microscopic particles cut through the protective waxy layer of their exoskeleton, causing them to dehydrate and eventually die. This mechanism of action makes it an effective solution and an excellent natural insecticide for getting rid of harmful insects such as cockroaches, ants, fleas, bedbugs and mites.

Crawling insects are particularly affected because once they have passed through this diatomaceous earth, the after-effects are irreversible. This is never immediate (24 to 72 hours), but always fatal for the insect affected. You will understand that diatomaceous earth has a more limited effect on flying insects.

Diatomaceous earth can be applied to plants to control pests such as slugs, snails, aphids and caterpillars. By depositing a thin layer of diatomaceous earth on the leaves and stems of plants, it acts as a physical barrier to repel insects. It is also effective in protecting stored grain from insects and rodents.

Diatomaceous earth is a versatile natural product that offers a safe and effective alternative to chemical insecticides. Its ability to combat pests while preserving the environment makes it a valuable ally in pest control, whether inside the home or in the garden. By using it responsibly, we can protect our living spaces while respecting the biodiversity that surrounds us.

 

Diatomaceous earth, for which insects ?

Diatomaceous earth can be used against a wide range of insects: Ants, aphids, mites, cockroaches, moths, maize earworms, earwigs, flies, leafhoppers, bedbugs, dimorph estigmata, weevils, spider mites, carpet beetles, millipedes, silverfish, slugs, mites, lice, red lice, snails, bedbugs, red spiders, floor fleas ...

What is diatomaceous earth ?

Application of diatomaceous earth aerosol

Diatoms (or Bacillariophyceae) are fossilized unicellular microscopic algae of marine organisms which have the particularity of possessing a siliceous skeleton. They can measure from a few micrometers to more than 500 micrometers. Each species of diatom has a unique series of holes, visible through a very powerful electron microscope. Diatoms can grow wherever they find a minimum of light and humidity: fresh, brackish and marine waters, but also in the ground and in the air. The deposits of dead diatom shells found in the soil are commonly known as "diatomaceous earth". Diatomaceous earth is an inert product and free of known harmful materials. It provides long-term protection of treated areas, both indoors and outdoors. After grinding, it has the appearance of talcum powder.

Action of diatomaceous earth on the insect

Diatomaceous earth, thanks to the specific surface of its grains and its siliceous skeleton, is formidable in the fight against crawling insects:

1 - The ingestion of silica particles (very sharp) by insects causes damage to their digestive tract.

2 - The fineness and hardness of the silica particles collected by the insect's bristles cause lesions on its limbs or on its shell (stepping on diatoms is equivalent to walking on broken glass!). This causes the insect to lose body fluids which leads to its death by dehydration after a few days. The absorbent properties of diatomaceous earth (up to 150% of its weight) favor this process.

And why in aerosol form ?

If you have ever had to deal with insect infestations such as fleas or bed bugs, for example, you know that these insects are particularly interested in hiding places which for us are very difficult to access (behind baseboards, in the bottom of floor grooves, behind furniture that is too heavy to move, etc.).

While spreading diatomaceous earth remains an excellent solution for the rest of the home, that formulated in aerosol form quickly becomes essential for treating hard-to-reach spaces. Kpro Vert aerosol diatomaceous earth has been formulated for this purpose. Thanks to its applicator tube, you can apply the product in the most difficult to reach places.

The duration of the biocidal action is given for 2-3 weeks. To stop this action, rinse the treated surfaces. Reapply every 2 to 3 weeks if necessary.

Examples of insects you can target

Spiders, cockroaches, ants, bed bugs, floor fleas, red lice, ...

Usage tips

Application de l'aérosol terre de diatomée Kapo Vert

Shake the aerosol vigorously until the ball separates. Spray a thin layer of diatomaceous earth preferably on the places where insects pass, on their nests and in their hiding places. Evacuate people, animals, foodstuffs present in the room and do not reintegrate them before 2 hours. The extension tube allows a more precise application (wall cracks, parquet joints, skirting boards, terraces, bed legs...). Against fleas in pets and red mites in poultry, spray directly into kennels, poultry houses, cages and bedding. Do not spray near live electrical appliances. Wait 5 minutes before turning the equipment back on. Proceed with brief pressures, without prolonged spraying. Ventilate well after use. Do not spray on/toward humans and animals. Cover or remove food, dishes, aquariums, terrariums and cages; Turn off power to aquarium pumps before spraying.

We answer your questions

▼ Where should I apply this insecticide and on what type of insect ?
This product contains diatomaceous earth. Its aerosol formulation makes it particularly suitable for targeted applications in nooks and crannies, small holes and other gaps where insects have taken refuge. As diatomaceous earth has a real effect on crawling insects (remember that it is essential for the insect to pass over it or be covered by it), this product is perfect, for example, for red lice, bedbugs, fleas, ants, cockroaches, etc.
▼ Does this product have an odour ?
The propane it contains, which enables the diatom to be expelled, smells a little strong. The diatomaceous earth, nothing at all. Remember to air your room well after use to eliminate this smell.
▼  Is it a problem if this insecticide is sprayed in a kitchen (presence of food) ?
The risk is very low. Once again, you'll be making targeted applications with this product, and all the more so in spaces that are a little difficult to access. Unless you're spraying it directly on fruit baskets on the preparations you're going to ingest, there's no contraindication to using it in a kitchen.
▼ Is it a problem if this product is sprayed on clothes ? Or does it risk damaging them ?
Why not, but there's little point. Especially as you'll then have diatomaceous earth particles clinging to the textiles. To treat textiles that cannot be washed at 60°C, we recommend using Ecodoo All Insects aerosol. To do this, place the clothes to be treated in a bin bag. Spray the Ecodoo insecticide inside. Close the bag tightly to make it as airtight as possible. Wait a minimum of 48 hours before reopening.
▼ I'm pregnant and have an asthmatic child at home. Is diatomaceous earth contraindicated ?
It's true that diatomaceous earth is made up of very fine particles of silica. This makes it irritating when inhaled. So you need to be careful. There is a risk, but only if the diatomaceous earth particles become suspended in the air and you inhale them. As this product must be applied in a targeted manner, the risk of breathing it in is low. However, we recommend taking the right precautions and asking your partner or friends to do it for you.
▼ Can this insecticide be delivered anywhere in the world ?
This insecticide is an aerosol. It is therefore under pressure. As aerosols are prohibited in the air network, it can only be shipped to destinations where the goods arrive by road or sea. In this case, this product can only be ordered from the following countries: Metropolitan France, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Switzerland.

Très efficace

M'a considérablement aidée dans ma lutte contre les punaises de lit. J'ai pu l'appliquer derrière des plinthes et dans des rainures de sols où elles s'étaient réfugiées. Envoi très rapide. C'est vraiment apprécié dans ces cas là.

Réponse de Penn'Ty Bio

Bonjour Pastorelli,
Attention, la terre de diatomée n'a jamais une action immédiate sur les insectes rampants. Son action asséchante, blessante et déshydratante peut prendre plusieurs heures à partir du moment ou l'insecte entre en contact. Il est donc fort possible que celle que vous mis en place provoque une action sur ces insectes. Ils vont juste mourir de leur blessures dans des espaces inaccessibles. Contre les cloportes, il est notamment primordiale de contrôler l'humidité présente dans votre logement. Ils préfèrent les endroits sombres, humides et protégés. Ils se réfugient souvent dans les fissures, sous les meubles, ou dans les zones où l'humidité est élevée. Leur préférence pour les milieux humides est due à leur besoin de garder leur corps hydraté.
Se nourrissant principalement de denrées moisies ou de matières végétales en décomposition, on ne retrouve cet insecte normalement que dans des locaux inhabités ou des caves.
Je vous invite donc à faire le nécessaire à ce niveau en corrigeant l'humidité présente. Ils disparaîtront ensuite d'eux même. Plus d'informations sur le cloporte en consultant notre dossier dédié : https://www.penntybio.com/fr/content/61-le-cloporte
Cordialement,

Ne fonctionne pas sur les cloportes

Forcément déçu puisque je l'ai acheté pour me débarrasser d'une infestation de cloportes mais ça ne leur fait rien du tout, j'en ai toujours autant dans ma maison et ils passent sans problème les abords de portes et fenêtres malgré le produit

Produit parfait

Les voisins étaient envahis de punaises de lit, je rentrais de Paris. J'ai commandé la poudre de diatomée. L'embout permet une application parfaite sur les lattes du sommiers et les plinthes. Une petite odeur, j'ai aéré. Pour l'instant, pas de punaises. Je suis ravie. J'ai commandé un aérosol de plus que je conserve.

Très efficace

Terre de diatomées utilisée en prévention contre des punaises de lit (car certains voisins infestés malheureusement.)
Sur les précieux conseils du technicien de l'entreprise de désinsectisation qui m'a recommandé LA TERRE DE DIATOMÉES, Je la fixe sur les pieds des lits, les plaintes ,sur les cadres de portes des chambres et du salon, cadre de porte du balcon et les seuils de portes afin que l'insecte entre obligatoirement en contact avec le produit et meurt peu de temps après .

Avec ce produit je suis plus apaisée en attendant que le problème du voisinage soit résolu.
(Bien-sûr il faut tout de même faire la vérification très régulière de la literie, des plaintes, aspirateur sous les lits,sous les placards meubles,lavage des vêtements à 60 degrés..)

J'en profite également pour remercier le service client qui est de très bons conseils, très compétent et tout à fait aimable .

Semble efficace

Aérosol pratique pour viser des parties inaccessibles lorsqu'il ne se bloque pas et qu'il est encore plein.
Sa tige ultra fine permet un accès au moindre rainures de parquet.
L'inconvénient c'est qu'il laisse des traces blanches sur les sols foncés et le bois ce qui n'est pas le cas de la terre de diatomée.
