Pest Control

 

Many people find Red Lake Earth works extremely well as a natural pest control product for use against crawling insects.

 

Popular uses include:

 

In the Garden (as a natural pesticide): Simply sprinkle (or mix with water and spray) at the base of plants or directly on to the plants.

 

Please note: diatomaceous earth can also be harmful to beneficial insects such as honey bees. Be careful not to apply the product to surfaces with which these beneficial insects may come in contact.

 

In the Home (for control of fleas, ticks, mites, bedbugs etc):

Sprinkle the powder in the cracks and crevices around your home - along baseboards, appliances, in the seams of bed and couches, etc. Leave the product down for at least at week . Monitor the results and vacuum or sweep up the product when desired results are obtained.

 

Please note: as with any type of dust, try to avoid inhaling large amounts.

Soil Amendment

 

Diatomaceous earth is also often mixed into soil as a soil amendment and has been shown to increase nutrient and moisture retention in the soil.
