Product Options


Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer is made from diatomaceous earth and kills a variety of crawling insects within 48 hours of contact. With no harmful chemicals added, Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer is OMRI Listed® and approved for use in organic gardening. This product is suitable for application indoors and out. When used as directed, it is suitable for use around children and pets.


You can use Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer to control a range of crawling insects, including:

  • Cockroaches
  • Ants
  • Fleas
  • Silverfish
  • Earwigs
  • Bed bugs
  • Crickets
  • Centipedes
  • Millipedes
  • Slugs


Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer takes care of pest problems without harsh chemicals. The diatomaceous earth insect killing powder is made up of finely crushed algae fossils. Though it feels soft to the touch for us, each microscopic piece is like a tiny shard of glass to small insects. As a mechanical killer, it shreds insects' exoskeletons as they move across it or ingest it, killing them within 48 hours by dehydration.


The bottle comes with a convenient pour spout to more easily reach tight spaces. Sprinkle the Safer® Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer diatomaceous earth powder in areas where you suspect or anticipate insect activity, or spread it as a barrier to entry points in your home. This includes areas such as:

  • Sidewalk cracks
  • Behind or around appliances
  • Under sinks
  • Around garbage cans
  • Around pipes and drains
  • Along window frames
  • Attics
  • Basements
  • Entrances
  • In gardens

After application, simply wait for the product to target the insects. Large infestations can sometimes take a few days for insects to make contact. Remember to reapply after rain or watering to replace the diatomaceous earth that has washed away.


Growing an organic garden can be an enjoyable and rewarding hobby. Organic gardening methods create a sustainable garden that feeds the soil it grows in, leaving your fruits and vegetables nutritious and delicious, and your flowers and ornamentals vibrant.
