How It Works
Grandpas Diatomaceous Earth® must come in contact with ants to work.
Ants, like many other insects, have an exoskeleton that has a waxy like coating covering it, keeping the ants hydrated. Grandpas Diatomaceous Earth® when very magnified you can see the individual Diatoms, which on a hardness scale diamond’s being a 10, diatom’s are an 8. To ants, the diatoms are very strong and sharp, when ants get Grandpas Diatomaceous Earth® on them it wears away their waxy like coating and cuts into their exoskeleton dehydrating them causing them to die.
