Scorpion Pest Control Powder
Spreading pesticide or DE powder around your property is NOT SAFE. Moreover, it’s ineffective scorpion control. Some companies (and DIY websites) claim spreading pesticide or DE powder around the base of your home kills pests including scorpions. Two reasons spreading powder for scorpion pest control is NOT safe & effective –
Besides the fact that most pesticides do not kill scorpions (some say they do, and don’t) this way, NO pesticide is labeled for application this way.
Pesticides applied in excess poses health risks to your family, pets, and other unintended creatures. Powdered pesticides should only by applied to cracks, crevices, and VOIDS. Voids are empty spaces that have no access like inside walls, etc. These carcinogenic products should be used professionally with treatment methods that reduce risk to applicants and residents.
People have the misconception that because SOME forms of DE are “food grade” they’re safe. But “food grade” means it’s safe for consumption and digestion, not INHALATION or pest control application.
DE powders are microscopically abrasive powders that are easily blown up into the air posing health risks to lungs, respiratory tracts, eyes, and skin. Inhaled Diatomaceous Earth can cause nasal passage irritation, a cough, and even shortness of breath. Getting DE in your eyes will cause irritation due to it’s abrasive nature.
Pool filter grade DE is processed differently – it is not amorphous, but rather contains crystallized silica (formed when DE is exposed to high heat). Such forms of DE are carcinogenic and not recommended for use in pest control.
Because DE is a fine dust, even food-grade forms may pose a hazard to health if inhaled. DE should be applied with a bulb-duster and the proper personal protective equipment (for DE this includes a NIOSH-approved respiratory Dust mask, gloves, goggles). Arizona state law requires that public applications of any pesticide – regardless of toxicity – must be done by personnel licensed by the Arizona Structural Pest Control Commission.” read more
