Natural Garden Pest Insect Control Using Diatomaceous eEarth
So a lot of people ask me, Patti you are an organic gardener, what do you do about all of this little bugs and slugs and all that stuffs that farmers for so long had been trying to come back. Well, I have one of the most amazing products that I discovered. It is actually been use for a really, really long time and it is called Diatomaceous earth
Now, Diatomaceous earth is actually fertilized algae that is found in sedimentary rock and it forms of powdery substance pretty easily. If you are asking what are you doing right now? Why are you watering your garden and watering all the leaves of your garden? Well the reason why I am doing that because I am going to spread the Diatomaceous earth or DE as also known on of my plants. And I want my powder to stick to the leaves of the plants so they have to be moist; they have to have water on them. In order for the dust to stick to the plants, now this is the Diatomaceous earth . This is actually a duster and what we use to dust the crops and let me show you in here. That is the powdery substance, now this is a completely safe for humans and for animals. So really do not have to worry about it getting you know into any other animals that might be around and this is the fun part.
And you can also use it indoor, this is great if you have got dogs and in the summer time they tend to get fleas you spread these all over there bedding and this is actually really, really safe for human consumption and also animal consumption. Not that I would recommend that you eat it but it is safe. Now Diatomaceous earth , the powder of the fossilized algae gets on to the insects and it is basically dehydrates them and they die. Of all you urbanized out their who are suffering your apartments with cockroaches go and get some DE. This is the organic all natural way to go to get the job done. I am Patti Moreno the Garden Girl. Thanks for watching.
