What is Diatomaceous Earth made from and how does it work? 

Diatomaceous earth is made from the skeletons of ancient water creatures and acts like an insecticide. Under a microscope diatomaceous earth looks like tiny shards of glass, when insects come into contact with these shards it punctures their exoskeleton and dehydrates them to death.

How do I pronounce “Diatomaceous Earth”?

Die-a-toe-may-shuss Earth...
