Red Lake Earth is not registered for use as an insecticide (is registered for use as an anti-caking agent and flow aid to be added to animal feed in an amount not exceeding 2% of the total diet). However, food grade diatomaceous earth, in general, does kill crawling insects. Our Last Crawl products are registered for use against crawling insects in the home and garden, and contain the same food grade DE found in Red Lake Earth. However, because they are registered insecticides, the DE in Last Crawl is specially labeled for this purpose.
Below, please find some use instructions for our Last Crawl Insect DEstroyer Insecticide Powder.
Dry Powder Application
Apply LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder to cracks and crevices with container provided, hand or powder duster, bulbous duster, flour sifter or other suitable equipment to areas where crawling insects are found. Apply lightly and uniformly. For best results, use in areas where dust application cannot be affected by heavy rains or high winds. When applying to plants, use a light dusting of LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder on both sides of the plant leaves.
Wet Powder Application
Mix 6 tablespoons of LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder per 1 quart of water. Mix well before application, and continue mixing during application. Use a bottle with spray settings. Apply to the point of wetness around foundations, shrubs, flower beds, gardens, using a suitable applicator. One quart of mixture will treat 108 sq. ft. Product remains effective for as long as it is present.
Apply a light dusting of LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder to areas where insects are found or may
hide including ant trails, gardens, shrub/flower beds, door frames, entrance ways, perimeter foundations, patios, window frames, window sills, garbage or recycling bins, etc. Dust insects directly where possible. For best results, leave the treated area undisturbed for two to three days to eliminate
existing and reoccurring infestations. When using LAST CRAWL™ Insecticide Powder for garden use, wash all produce thoroughly before using.
Please note: When using DE insecticides, such as Last Crawl, please see label for full and specific use instructions.
