What will diatomaceous earth not kill?

Asked by Cecilia Keller

Diatomaceous Earth is effective against any insect that has an exoskeleton. … While it doesn’t outright kill them, many snails and slugs do not like to crawl over DE (and it slows them down), so it can be used as a protective barrier or deterrent.
