Diatomaceous earth – Kieselguhr Celatom - Crawling insects – Penntybio
Diatomaceous earth (also called Kieselguhr Celatom) is a completely ecological and natural insecticide that helps fight against insects and mainly crawlers such as cockroaches, silverfish, ants, bed bugs, fleas, woodlice, spider webs, centipedes , beetle, earwigs, red louse... Available in 150 g, 300 g, 1 kg and 2 kg.
The earth of diatoma is a sedimentary rock composed of fossils of marine microscopic algae very sharp. This land (poudre) is extracted from careers.
Our diatomy earth is composed of Natural inert diatomites (amorphous silices,) stable thermally, non-toxic, usable in agriculture, animal feeding, soil amendments, as vectors, anti-motor functional ingredients or insecticide active ingredients.
This diatomy land is a natural insecticide that kills insects and slugs by dehydration by damaging their skeletons by absorption of protective waxes.
This is a naturally pure diatom earth – its clear color differs very clearly from the very dark colors (presence of impurities) of the diatom lands mainly from inde or china – No treatment or addition.
It can be used in gardens, houses, vegetable gardens, barns, stables, livestock boxes, it reduces odours, moisture, flies infestation by killing larvae. In dry shampoo, by sprinkling on the animal coat, allows to fight the chips and ticks. This earth of diatomy is not toxic to vertebrates.
And its fields of application are numerous and do not confine themselves to anti-insect action. The earth of diatoma has a strong absorbing power (up to 150% of its weight.) It will be ideal to absorb moisture or any liquid (animal litters, patches on tissues, urines, etc.) Its absorption capabilities will allow it to eliminate certain odors. Having a very fine and abrasive structure, it will also help you to shine without scratching the copper, inox or silverware (with a microfiber cloth impregnated with vinegar and Earth of Diatomée, you rub the object to polish, the result is quick and perfect!)
What action on insects?
Ingestion of this product by insects causes lesions of the digestive tube, while fixation on the body of the insect causes death by dehydration.

Some technical details on this diatomaceous earth
Our land of diatoma comes from the marine quarries of Europe richest in silica (90%) that represent 20% of the world’s resources. The Cetom grades of which it is composed are the purest and most regular of the market.
They offer the largest surface area of 25 to 70 m2/g compared to conventional loads such as talc, kaolin, perlite. The porosity of Cetom is 100 to 1000 times higher than that of calcinated and zeolith clays.
Areas of application
1 - Dogs, cats, small animals and birds
The Diatomaceous earth works very effectively as a drying agent against chips and more generally against all skin insects. Dry and decrease the smell of litter and urine.
2 - Chickens and low yards
The Diatomaceous earth a will act for a long time in the prevention of red and grey lice stirring in the low leisure courtyard. Sprinkle generously with the first use, then regularly with each litter change. With a strong power of absorption, it also acts as a desiccator, assainits the litter that avoids the scab of the legs. Increase in the weight of flesh and the size of eggs thanks to the important intake of natural silica.
3 - Horses and Ponys
It's safe for the horse. Mechanical action, without chemical action. Absorb mycotoxins too. Perform a month’s curative “treatment” at each season.
4 - Domestic use
As an anti-insect:Thanks to its drying, dehydrating and injuring power, diatomy is effective against creeping insects. Spiders, cockroaches, parquet chips, bed bugs, augusts will not live long from the moment they contacted this powder. Sprinkle insect passage places or places frequented by domestic Diatomaceous earth animals. Renew the operation regularly and make sure there is no humidity.
To deodorize: Its strong absorbent power allows to capture odours and moisture in a house. You can also put some in the vacuum bag. In addition to capturing odors, it will be effective to kill the chips or mites that you eventually caught!
To clean: Thanks to its very fine and abrasive structure, the earth of Diatomée cleans without scratching and shining the inx, copper, tin and silverware. The surfaces impregnated by this powder are quickly dried and cleaned.
5 - In the garden
You can also use the datum soil in the vegetable garden against slugs for example. Just sprinkle the diatom around the plants to be protected. Careful, however, to renew systematically after each rain or dew. It is also used to destroy the beard pyral larvae and all other insects considered harmful to your crops. Be careful not to use during flowering period to preserve bees and butters in general.
6 - UV coating - Protecting vegetable and vegetable crops
The spraying of aqueous suspensions of diatomy soil wraps fruit and preserves UV damage. Do not spray on flowers (dose = 60 to 90%. ).
7 - Preservation of silo seeds and during transport
Insecticide action while absorbing excess moisture safely to man or animal, without changing the taste or smell of food (dose = 2%)
8 - Animal feeding
GMP+ certified food grade. Known as additive E551c. Naturally contain many nutrients such as iron, calcium, magnesium beneficial to animal health. Packs the coat and improves the condition of the sabots. Reduces overall animal stress. Diatomed soil can be ingested safely and will even have a vermifuge action by filtering intestinal debris (recommended dose = 2%. ).
9 - Soil amendments
The soil of diatoma allows the permanent maintenance of soils by reducing irrigation by their ability to retain water and moisture and improving the health and vigour of plant roots. The land of diatoma is commonly used in lawns, gardens, landfills, and landscaping areas.
Mixed on the surface floor, the diatomy soil allows better resistance to water stress, absorbs the water in excess and gradually restores it. It abrates soil and helps to root plant development.
It also promotes the cationic exchanges necessary for the plant for the absorption of phosphorus, potassium and potash.

How do I use diatomaceous earth ?
Spread a small amount of powder (approximately 20 grs/m2) in the insect passage areas, like behind the closets, in cracks, under the bathtub, folds, bottom doors, in the corners, cracks, crevasses ... From the moment the insect gets in touch with this powder, the dry, dehydrated and injurious properties will come into action, condemning it in the hours that follow.
Even if the white diatoma remains more effective for this use (dissolves better than gray), it can also be used in spraying for the treatment of flat plants (10 grs of Earth Diatomée for 1 litre of water, agitate well, then spray.).
By diluting it in water (300 to 500 grs of powder with 1 liter of lukewarm water), vertical surfaces, walls, cage elements, etc. can also be treated to mix well in order to obtain a fluid consistency and without clumps. Once the water is evaporated, the product becomes active after drying.
Duration of action
Totally inert, its lifetime is unlimited. But to be effective, the powder must remain dry and not covered with dust.
