Earth of diatomy, natural insecticide

The soil of diatoma, this fine powder composed of fossilized skeletons of microscopic algae is an excellent natural insecticide. Its dry, watery and abrasive properties make it a dreadable weapon for many insects. The creeping insects are all the more concerned because once passed through this diatomy land, the soles are irreversible. This is never immediate (24 to 72 hours), but still fatal to the affected insect. You will understand that the earth of diatoma has a more limited action on flying insects.

 

Earth of diatomy, for which insects?

Diatomed soil can be used against many insects: The ants, Pucerons, Acarians, cockroaches, Mites, Cornflower, Earrings, Flyings, Cicadelles, Punaises, Estigmènes dimorphes, Charançons, Tetranyques, Anthrènes des carpets, Mille-pattes, Silver lepers, Limaces, Acariens, Poux, Red beds, Escargots

What is diatomaceous earth ?

Carrière de terre de diatomée

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, ...

Application de l'aérosol terre de diatomée Kapo Vert

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.

Très bon produit

Produit essayé sur des vieilles poutres. Injectés dans les trous laissées par les capricornes cela semble vraiment efficace.

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.

Indispensable

Si on lutte contre les punaises de lit, cet aérosol est parfait, car il permet de fixer la terre de Diatomée à des endroits très précis, par exemple des fonds de bibliothèques... Dommage que le gaz qui le propulse sente si mauvais, mais l'odeur disparaît en quelques heures...
