  • Using diatomaceouse earth on bugs

    Having been reading more about the powder,i came accross the words(dries out the bodies,)so i am thinking about trying it on the different colors of flies/bugs on the plants when they arrive,it has to be the food grade,i see a place near me sell it,
    has anyone used it,
    if so what were the results,
    and what are your oppinions on it,
    look forwards to repies

    yes i know it's sold for chicken bugs as well

    LD, what are you proposing? To dust it on plants to kill aphids and caterpillars? That kind of thing?
