Applications

Home & Garden and Pest Control Operators

DIAFIL® 610 & CELITE® 610 MECHANICAL INSECTICIDE have proven effective against the most problematic insect pests such as cockroaches, ants, beetles, bedbugs, and other crawling insects that are found at your home or business.

  • DIAFIL® 610 AN EPA REGISTERED, OMRI LISTED NATURAL AMORPHOUS SILICA
  • CELITE® 610 AN EPA REGISTERED, OMRI LISTED HIGH EFFICACY NATURAL AMORPHOUS SILICA

Natural Amorphous Silicates (100% Natural Diatomaceous Earth) are intended for application with a hand or power duster and can be used indoors and outdoors in dry situations. They can be applied to cracks and crevices with the use of a bulbous or hand duster and if used outdoors, can be applied as a wetable powder.

DIAFIL® 610 & CELITE® 610 mechanical insecticides are safe and effective alternatives to chemical insecticides for a variety of pests. Mechanical insecticides can be used independently or alongside chemical insecticides to form part of a cost-effective Integrated Pest Management program.

Indoor use:

Cockroaches, Ants, Earwigs, Millipedes and Centipedes, Crickets and Silverfish. Lightly coat a thin layer in areas where these pests are found and may hide such as cracks and crevices, behind and beneath refrigerators, cabinets, stoves, garbage cans and in and around sewer pipes and drains, window frames and in attics and basements. Dust insects directly if possible.

Fleas: Thoroughly treat floor and bedding in and around pets’ sleeping quarters. Treat surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting and wherever fleas are suspected.

Carpet Beetles: Dust along baseboards, carpet edges, under carpeting, furniture, in closets and shelving where these insects are seen or suspected.

Bedbugs: Dismantle bed and apply in joints, crevices and where rungs are inserted. See that all interior areas are dusted. Dust mattresses especially folds and edges. All cracks and crevices and around window openings in the bedroom should be treated.

Outdoor Use:

Cockroaches, Earwigs, Grasshoppers, Ants and Crickets: Lightly coat a thin layer of powder or slurry to areas where these insects are found such as patios, outdoor sills, window and door frames. Apply around foundations, along ant trails and around sewer pipes and drains

How Does It Work?

Insects come in contact or ingest the mechanical insecticide and die within 48 hours. Mechanical insecticides are high adsorption natural amorphous silicates that works by removing and adsorbing the protective waxy covering of insects that are exposed to it. This covering protects insects from water loss and they dehydrate when the protective layer is removed.
