Indoor and Outdoor Application:
Intended for application with a hand duster, power duster or other similar means for application to areas where crawling insects are found. Apply to cracks and crevices with the use of a bulbous duster or other suitable equipment. Apply lightly and uniformly. A fine, light coating such as what you would see when powder or baking flour accidentally drifts to the floor, is the most effective. 

Indoor Use: Cockroaches, Ants, Earwigs, Millipedes and Centipedes, Crickets and Silverfish. Lightly coat a thin layer of Crawling Insect Control in areas where these pests are found and may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath refrigerators, cabinets, stoves, garbage cans and in and around sewer pipes and drains, window frames and in attics and basements. Dust insects directly if possible. Repeat treatment regularly. 
Fleas:Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas are suspected. Apply lightly to carpet, rake into fibers using a carpet rake or a garden rake. Leave the product in place for as long as possible then vacuum lightly. Reapply in 7-10 days as Diatomaceous Earth does not kill eggs. 
Bedbugs: Dismantle bed. Use Crawling Insect Control in joints, crevices and where rungs are inserted. See that all interior areas are dusted. Dust mattresses especially folds and edges. All cracks and crevices in the bedroom should be treated. 
Outdoor Use: Cockroaches, Earwigs, Grasshoppers, Ants, Crickets and other crawling insects: Lightly coat a thin layer of Crawling Insect Control in areas where these insects are found such as patios, outdoor sills, window and door frames. Dust around foundations, along ant trails and around sewer pipes and drains. Move woodpiles away from the foundation as wood is a favorite hide out for many insects. Repeat treatment as necessary. 

Diatomaceous Earth can also have a very good long term residual effect when applied to cracks and crevices. This long term protection and control of insects can be achieved due to Diatomaceous Earth controlling insects by physical means, not chemical, and therefore denying them the ability to build up a resistance to it in future generations.

Diatomaceous Earth is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of microscopic organisms called diatoms. Diatomaceous Earth is a light dust that clings easily to the bodies of insects as they walk or crawl over it. Unlike boric acid dusts that work best when ingested, Crawling Insect Control only requires contact with the insect to be effective. It absorbs the waxy cuticle surrounding the insect, causing the insect to dehydrate and die. Diatomaceous Earth is a natural, mechanical insecticide that is an excellent alternative to conventional chemicals
