So I read all over the place that diatomaceous earth is a good way to stop pests. I guess the deal is that it is small fossilized plants and it slices the exoskeleton of bugs that walk across it and then they bleed to death (not a pleasant way to go).
One thing I find interesting is that a lot of sites claim that Bisquick, and other mixes, contain diatomaceous earth (DE) as a pest control.
This site for example on How to keep bugs from entering my house http://howtokeepbugsfromenteringmyhouse.blogspot.com/
Or this one http://www.internet-grocer.net/diatome.htm
So I wrote Bisquick an email because I’m curious if this is true or not?
