DE= diatomaceous earth

It is like sharp little crystals. Insects, spiders, and other creepy crawlies have exo-skeletons. They walk on this DE and it gets all over them and cuts their exo-skeleton and absorbs all the protective lipids and they die. Does the same to your lungs.

Use some cedar oil and garlic spray.
