Spring is getting here (a little slower than I’d like) and you know what that means:
Ants. Fleas. Stinkbugs.
Odds are you’ve dealt with them a time or two…
I absolutely love most things about springtime, but bugs are not one of them. Each spring it seems like the little critters emerge from their winter hibernation, ready to make my spring miserable. From fleas on the dog, to mites on our little flock of chickens, to ants crawling into the kitchen… I’ve simply had enough of battling bugs!
Last summer, in the midst of a fire-ant infestation in my garden, I finally reached my limit. Through the knowledge of a trusted old farmer-friend, I found a bug-killer that would finally work, once and for all. Best of all, this new method was completely 100% organic and non-toxic! What am I talking about?
God’s Miracle Dust. Well, that’s our little (and quite accurate) nickname for it, but it’s really called Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth – or DE for short.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a completely natural substance. It’s made up of the fossilized remains of plankton diatoms. Diatoms are simply tiny, little single-celled algae found inside the plankton. You can take the fossilized shells of these diatoms and grind them into a fine, white powder that’s lightweight, gritty, and porous. While the science behind it is very simple, diatomaceous earth packs a powerful punch.
Food grade diatomaceous earth can kill any bug with an exoskeleton with ease – but it is safe for any mammal to eat. It is becoming a popular way to kill bugs without using insecticide… and for good reason. It’s safe and non-toxic, unlike most pest control treatments and bug sprays.
How Does It Work?
Diatomaceous Earth is nearly pure silica, with some beneficial trace minerals. Under a microscope, DE looks like sharp little shards of glass. On any insect with an exoskeleton, like fleas, ants, and cockroaches, the DE works its way under the hard shell and punctures the bug’s body. It then dehydrates the body and the bug dies. It’s a purely PHYSICAL method of eliminating the bug – not chemical! Diatomaceous earth is totally nontoxic and there is no “tolerance buildup” or resistance like you get with toxic poisons. And, because it’s a purely physical method of eradication, food grade diatomaceous earth will not harm humans or pets!
Use God’s Miracle Dust for eliminating:
- Earwigs, Millipedes, Centipedes… and others of the sort
- Ants – both black & fire ants!
You can use it safely to eradicate any bug with a hard exoskeleton, which is almost every single one of the “pest” bugs that plague us each spring! You have no idea how happy I was to realize I’d never have to purchase expensive flea medications and preventative treatments ever again…
Use God’s Miracle Dust safely in your kitchen and bathroom. Put it behind and beneath refrigerators, cabinets, stoves, garbage cans, and in or around sewer and drain pipes. Put it in your doorways and around windows. Sprinkle it on the patio and around your foundation. You can even put it directly in your garden on your plants and it won’t harm your plants and vegetables at all – only the bugs will be taken out!
Remember: This treatment is not a chemical one, so it does not break down or become less effective over time. You only need to reapply DE when the weather washes away or blows away the powder. During the spring and summer months, when heavy rainstorms occur frequently and bugs are active, it’s a good idea to treat your yard once a month for maximum effectiveness. Just two pounds of this stuff is effective for treating up to 1000 square feet, but I now keep at least 5 pounds of food grade DE on hand at all times, because it’s good for everything.
With spring arriving, you’ll want to order at least 5 pounds of food grade DE to get you through “bug season” – especially if you have pets or a garden. Once you try it, you’ll know why we call it God’s Miracle Dust!
P.S. – There are some other really great uses for food grade diatomaceous earth. If you order 5 pounds of God’s Miracle Dust for just $29.97, plus shipping and handling, we’ll throw in a free eBook copy of “The Diatomaceous Earth Revolution.” (It’s a $19.95 value!)
