Desi-Dust is a natural organic (diatomaceous earth) entrapment powder; made up of tiny fossilised silica diatoms. Natural silica has many uses. Absorbing moisture, fats and oils; Aids in plant growth and development; Anti-caking feed additive are but a few. Desi-Dust works by naturally drawing away all the essential moisture insects require to aid in their development and reproduction. Without any moisture the insects cannot breed, making living conditions uninhabitable! Desi-Dust can be applied on and around pets and animals (avoid contact with eyes), including their bedding, litter areas, cracks and crevices. The natural silica absorbs any moisture, reduces odour and bacteria breeding grounds, resulting in clean dry areas where insects find it impossible to develop. Animal productivity is increased due to comfortable surroundings. Desi-Dust can be applied to plants, their leaves and surrounding soil. Silica is naturally abundant in plants, aids growth and development, but also prevents ideal breeding conditions for crawling insects. Desi-Dust can be liberally applied in and around the home, including in the garden when weather is dry.
