Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is EPA approved and registered for
use against indoor and outdoor crawling insects, including cockroaches,
ants, bedbugs, fleas, boxelder bugs, carpet beetles, centipedes,

and silverfish. For use in Cracks, Crevices, Hiding and Running Areas,

DE is odorless and nontoxic.
DE is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of minuscule organisms
called diatoms. The microscopically fine, sharp edges desiccate the
insects' exoskeleton upon contact and the pests dehydrate and die within
hours. The insects also die when they eat the dust.
