    Y'all have any natural ways to get rid of these suckers? Neem oil didn't do jack. We don't want to spray pesticides because of the bees.(they are back after the neem oil wore off.)

    Never heard of it. Will do some research, but can you tell me what it is?

    Dynamite.
    That should do the trick.

    Actually dynamite used to be made out of Nitro and Diatomaceous earth. Light the fuse and step back..
    No more bugs.

    Crushed fossilized organisms. It’s got silica in it. From my understanding it cuts the exoskeleton of bugs on contact and they die. It has many uses though.

  6. DE is good stuff and you can get a big bag at most farm stores cheap. I like to fog it on myself. Here’s a decent little video.

    DE-earth is good stuff. just dont inhale it. you can eat it or drink it in water, or whatever. it comes from diatoms, one celled creatures, maybe, millions of years ago.it will do lung damage, as many forms of dust can. it's used in make-up, and a variety of products. the skeletons are razor sharp, and will eat a bug from the inside out.

    i dont think they are bugs, as one celled creatures. i can tell ya this, i inhaled the dust in many ways. teacher ask you to clean up the chalk erasers, shooting pool, and etc.. ya ever see an ant, an ya got some chalk, draw a circle around it. most will not cross the line. depends where the chalk is made, or supplies that make it.. Just like Tool's.. oops, wrong thread...
     
  11. Wikipedia has all you want to know and a whole lot more about diatoms, what DE is made up of.

    Yeah, they're not really bugs. I just call 'em that.

    I recall having to tip toe and put my nose into a chalk ring on the blackboard for doing stuff unapproved of by teachers.

    i recall, my teachers making me do stupid stuff, mostly the other kids, to show off their power. was the 1st grade, yet left an impression on me, the rest of my life. why do a power thing on 6 yr olds. only if i could show a swastika, maybe a nun, from another form of brain washing, its all the same.,,
    there is a bunch that will teach ya anything, should it suit the agenda. they have power, and money, an will take from you as a giant tick, in your skin, as long as you will let them. whether religion or politics, something has to ring true... you can see on the sidewalks, of California, how socialism has been ringing true on the sidewalks.. lets make it nationwide. sorry i'm on the wrong forum, could you please transfer this to the political forum..
    at the moment, comes a good storm...
