Will Diatomaceous Earth 85% kill fly eggs/larva?

If not, what do you suggest for outdoor use in a dog run area of artificial turf? Thank you!


Diatomaceous Earth is not labeled for flies.  Are you able to hang a fly trap in the area? If so, we would recommend using the Flies Be Gone Trap. It does need to be placed at least 30 feet away from the area you are wanting to treat. It does have a strong odor when there are flies inside of it. It will protect the area between 50 to 100 yards away.
