De-Gnat Plant Protector is made of DE which is known as Diatomaceous Earth which is a natural Silica compound derived from earth minerals to protect your plants from insects. DE-Gnat creates a barrier over the top of your medium/substrate that features abrasive properties utilizing desiccation to deter, control and kill fungus gnats and other pests.
De-Gnat insect shield is comprised of specially sized DE granules to form a residual barrier to control a variety of pests throughout their entire life cycle. This product is organically sourced and naturally refined, to provide numerous benefits to your plants and substrate other than pest/insect control.
The insect shield provides a natural source of silica, helps to increase porosity (air within medium) and reduce compaction within your substrate. It also facilitates nutrient uptake and absorption as well as microbial activity and thermal control.
