Overall I would buy it again
 June 28, 2015
"I was looking for something that was non toxic for our pets and grandchildren. We have crane flys really bad this year. It works well but we have had a lot of rain. Every time I would give our lawn a good spray the next day it would rain so back came the crane flys with a vengeance. Not a good year for experimenting with this product but I would give it another go."

Like the fact that it's NON-TOXIC!
 June 9, 2015
"As for mixing ratios, I called the company and suggested that they put the mixing directions on the container. It's two tablespoons per quart of water. Use a good squirt bottle to apply where you need it. It's easier to put two DRY tablespoons of the Diatom powder in a cup of water and then dump it in the spray bottle instead of trying to measure two DRY tablespoons of the Diatom powder in the little spray bottle opening. The wind will blow the powder everywhere. Mixing it with a little water first will help prevent breathing in any of the powder."

There is no instruction on Mixing Ratio
 May 8, 2015
"Why isn't there an instruction as to how much water and how much powder to put when preparing the spray for the yard? Please advise ASAP as I purchased this for our deck. I can not review this product until I start to use it and know how effective it is. Thanks."

"I use this under my ducks pen, in my yard for scorpions and spiders and on my various plants to keep off worms, aphids and all the millions of Florida bugs. It helps to keep fleas and ticks off my pups. Many uses for this!"
