As any legume grower knows, beans and peas are as nutritious for pests as they are for us. From the voracious aphids to the hardy bean beetles, these pests can wreak havoc on crops. Fortunately, AgriDiatomSil offers a haven from these invaders. This diatomaceous earth insecticide is a non-chemical pesticide that delivers a knockout blow to a wide range of legume-loving pests while serving as a soil conditioner and providing the benefits of amorphous silica to your soil.

Targeting Pests with Precision – AgridiatomSil

  • Aphids and Whiteflies: These sap-suckers can stunt growth by feeding on plant juices. AgriDiatomSil adheres to plant surfaces, creating a hostile environment for these and other soft-bodied insects.
  • Bean Beetles and Mexican Bean Beetles: They defoliate plants, nibbling away leaves. The abrasive nature of diatomaceous earth disrupts their exoskeleton and deters their feasting.
  • Caterpillars and Corn Earworms: These chewers can decimate leaves and pods. AgriDiatomSil’s coverage prevents them from making a meal of your crops.
  • Cucumber Beetles: Known to spread diseases as they feed, managing them with AgriDiatomSil helps maintain plant health and vigor.
  • Leafminers and Loopers: These pests create unsightly trails and holes in leaves. The protective layer of AgriDiatomSil can prevent them from laying eggs and shield the plants.

Application Mastery

Mixing 4 lbs of AgriDiatomSil in 50 gallons of water, apply as a thin layer, ensuring all plant and leaf surfaces are covered. It’s essential to reapply after extreme weather events to maintain an effective barrier against pests like grasshoppers and webworms.

Beyond Pest Control

AgriDiatomSil is not just about pest control—it’s about nurturing the ecosystem. As a soil amendment, it enhances drainage and nutrient retention, making it beneficial for both vegetables and flowers. It offers a holistic approach to farming/gardening that goes beyond mere pest management.


Incorporating AgriDiatomSil into your legume cultivation practices means investing in the health of your plants and the safety of your harvest. It’s a commitment to organic farming principles and a testament to the efficacy of natural remedies in our ongoing battle against agricultural pests.
