Natural diatomaceous earth for hazard-free control of red mites and other crawling insects

Product description

InsectoSec® is manufactured from amorphous diatomaceous earth. Diatomaceous earth is a natural mineral extracted from the microscopic shells of fossilized diatoms. InsectoSec® is used as an insecticide mainly to control the red fowl mite in poultry farms but also for biocidal purposes against crawling insects in house and garden. InsectoSec® can be used in empty barns but also in the presence of animals.

InsectoSec® is applied to the preferred hiding places and travel routes of the insects. The fine powder sticks to the body of the insects and kills them within a short time. Up to now no resistances against InsectoSec® have been identified.
