DeSect Home and Garden is the effective and organic solution that keeps bugs out of places they don’t belong. While used in common, everyday areas, this non-chemical and easy to use product speaks for itself. From doorways, to bathrooms, to flowerpots, DeSect Home and Garden repels bugs while being safe and eco-friendly.
What is it?
DEsect® Diatomaceous Earth Insecticide is produced from a special grade of fresh-water diatomaceous earth (DE) and is a highly effective insect control solution. DEsect physically abrades & absorbs the exterior protective waxy cuticle layer of the insect, resulting in rapid death by dehydration. (Insects cannot become immune to its action.) DEsect is made from a special DE ore deposit which kills insects faster than competing brands of DE, according to testing by an independent entomology laboratory.
Where is DEsect used?
DEsect can be used in and around the home, yard and garden. It aids in the control of Ants, Grasshoppers, Crickets, and Box Elder Bugs. (Most diatomaceous earth insecticide suppliers do not have EPA approval for home and garden so watch for that validation.)
DEsect is Effective against almost all insects!
DEsect Insecticides also kills Roaches, Slugs, Earwigs, Silverfish, Millipedes, Centipedes, Sow bugs, Pill Bugs, Lice, Mites, and Carpet Beetles. DEsect is effective against Fleas, Ticks, Aphids, Snails, and Japanese Beetles, and stored grain insects such as Rice Weevils, Granary Weevils, Angoumois Grain Moths, Mediterranean Flour Moths, Indian Meal Moths, Red Flour Beetles and Tribolium.
