We live in a world that’s drowning in chemicals. From the lotion, you put on your hands to the spray you use to cover up that smell after your husband leaves the bathroom, most personal care and home maintenance products we use daily are significant, if not wholly, made of synthetic and chemical-based ingredients. All this exposure to low-grade toxins is taking its toll on our health.
“Substances that may cause distress or disease to our bodies can be found in everything that we eat, in everything that we drink and even in the air we breathe,” explains the author of the book Invisible Killers. “A high body burden has been implicated in Immunotoxicity - leading to asthma, allergies, cancers, and chronic disease; Neurotoxicity - leading to cognition impairment, memory loss as well as sensory and motor dysfunction; and Endocrine toxicity - leading to reproductive issues, loss of libido and metabolic impairment.”
You Don't Need Toxic Chemicals To Kill Bed Bugs
Suppose you’re aware of the toll that environmental toxins can take on your health and the health of your family members but have discovered bed bugs in your house. In that case, you may find yourself in a bit of a conundrum: should you expose yourself to more potentially harmful chemicals in the hopes of exterminating these nasty bugs from your home?
Here at the Bed Bug Store, we don’t think eradicating bed bugs requires dousing your home in toxins. That’s why we created the complete line of Bed Bug Patrol products on the Bed Bug Store. Our flagship product is an entirely natural Bed Bug Killer Spray that provides fast-acting protection against these parasitic insects. You can spray it on nearly any surface in your home to kill bed bugs in their tracks, and you won’t have to deal with sticky residue or nasty chemical odors that pollute your air. Our sprays can also remove fleas, ticks, and spiders.
But our Bed Bug Killing Spray isn’t the only natural bed bug treatment product we offer. For long-term protection against bed bugs, and a weapon against bed bugs in areas where you can’t spray, we offer our incredible Crawling Insect Control Dust. Keep reading to learn more about this utterly natural bed bug killer.
What Is Diatomaceous Earth?
Our Crawling Insect Control Dust is made from diatomaceous earth, which is a fancy way of saying “the bone-dust of fossilized sea creatures from millions of years ago.” That’s right, “the fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms. Their skeletons are made of a natural substance called silica. Over a long period of time, diatoms accumulated in the sediment of rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans. Today, silica deposits are mined from these areas,” National Pesticide Information Center explains.
Why Does Diatomaceous Earth Kill Bed Bugs?
So now that you know what diatomaceous earth is, you might be wondering why you should spread it all over your home to kill bed bugs.
We make our Crawling Insect Control Dust out of diatomaceous earth because a curious thing happens when bed bugs come into contact with it. Rather than poisoning them (remember, the diatomaceous world is entirely natural and non-toxic. Humans can even eat it!), this mineral-rich substance works by severely dehydrating the bugs.
"Diatomaceous earth causes insects to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the cuticle of the insect's exoskeleton. Its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. It remains effective as long as it is kept dry and undisturbed," continues NPIC.
How To Use Diatomaceous Earth In Your Home
Using our diatomaceous earth as a natural bed bug killer is easy! Just follow the simple steps below:
Steam clean your home (especially linens and furniture)
Wash all fabrics that can be removed (sheets, blankets, fabric mattress covers, pillowcases, furniture throws, towels, and clothing).
Vacuum your entire home, including furniture and other un-carpeted surfaces.
Apply diatomaceous earth in home areas where you suspect bed bugs may be hiding or returning to (along with the molding, in drawers, in any cracks or crevices, behind appliances, along the window sills and door jambs, and behind electrical switches and outlets.
Work diatomaceous earth into your furniture, mattresses, and carpeting with your hands (remember, it’s only toxic to bed bugs!)
