KNOCK DOWN ECO™ POT-IT Crawling Insect Control & Killer Bait Powder is formulated using FOOD GRADE NATURAL FRESH WATER DIATOMACEOUS EARTH (DE) and two FOOD GRADE baits. DE is a form of amorphous silica consisting of fossilized remains of diatoms belonging into a major group of algae, one of the most common types of phytoplankton.
KNOCK DOWN ECO™ POT-IT Crawling Insect Control & Killer Bait Powder kills and controls the listed crawling insect pests indoors and outdoors around homes and gardens.
HOW IT WORKS: Insects have a thin covering of wax on their bodies that helps to prevent water loss(dehydration). Knock Down Eco™ Crawling Insect Control & Killer Baited Diatomaceous Earth (DE) kills insects through internal and external cutting action which causes dehydration of the insect. Besides the DE powder, the formulation contains two food grade baits that attract certain insects to stay longer on the treated (powdered) surfaces and to eat the powder. When insects stop to eat the DE baited powder, the DE particles damage the insect’s gut and water loss occurs through damaged tissue (internal dessication). The formulation can be used as a dry and wet powder.
