3. Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
Diatomaceous earth is also known as DE which is made from fossilized remains of aquatic organisms called diatoms. It helps to kill pests like cockroaches, ants, spiders etc. It works by absorbing moisture from their bodies which eventually kills them when they dry out.
You can buy DE online or at any local hardware store for about $5-$10 per pound depending on where you live. Diatomaceous earth can be used both indoors and outdoors but make sure that you don’t breathe it in when applying it because it has sharp edges which may irritate lungs.
You should wear gloves while applying this product as well because if you don’t then your skin may become irritated by this product too. To apply DE, just spread it evenly over areas that have lots of pests crawling around such as under sinks, cabinets, behind appliances etc.
Leave this product on those areas for about 6-8 hours before vacuuming up all excess powder with a vacuum cleaner. Make sure not to vacuum up any powder directly into your vacuum cleaner bag because this could damage the motor inside your vacuum cleaner.
Just put a small container next to where you are vacuuming up all powder so that any extra powder will fall into it instead. After vacuuming up all excess powder , just throw away container with excess powder into trash outside since DE is not harmful to animals or humans.
