What can I say...I LOVE the stuff!
But before I get started I want to share a concern I had and was voiced by several customers. If DE works on bag bugs, does it also "work" on bees? Will it hurt the bees?
Here's my response...
From the book Going Green using Diatomaceous Earth:
"When Diatomaceous Earth is applied to crops or orchards, the honey bee tends to protect themselves by simply avoiding those blossoms already treated with DE. However, if DE does get on a bee's body, it is covered with slick hairs that are able to help prevent dehydration of body fluids.
Then the bee simply vibrates its wings to remove the dust and protect itself. However, should a bee get enough DE on it to cause death, he's the only insect that dies. Even if he makes it back to the hive, he does not contaminate the colony, as DE is not a chemical toxin."
