Diatomaceous Earth can be a great way to deal with many pests. I had a hard time putting it out though and getting an even dust that is also under leaves. I have been using this feather duster for a few years and it is really key in getting the dust where I need it. Dip the tip, shake off excess inside bag or bin. Then fool around with how to flick it where you want. This how I dress even if it is organic. Bad for your lungs. It’s messy so I prefer to cover so I don’t leave everything dusted in my wake.
