'Nature's bug-killer' doesn't

'Nature's bug-killer' doesn't

South African Journal of Science 77(8): 352

Laboratory studies were carried out in South Africa to investigate the effectiveness of diatomaceous earth, which had been claimed to be an efficient insecticide, against several insect pests of medical importance (Musca domestica L., Periplaneta americana (L.), Cimex lectularius L., Ctenolepisma longicaudata Esch., Anopheles arabiensis Patt. and Loxosceles sp.). The differences in mortality between treated and untreated insects were insignificant.
