What is diatomaceous earth ?
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. Kapo Vert's 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, ...

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.

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.
