What is Absorbacide®?
Absorbacide® is the finest grade of our specially processed diatomite. Diatomaceous earth, also known as diatomite has been mined from sedimentary layers deposited millions of years ago in a fresh water lake.
It is light in weight, chalk like in appearance, very porous, and comprises siliceous fossils of plant algae. It consists primarily of amorphous silica as distinct from crystalline silica or quartz. Amorphous silica is much more soluble than crystalline silica and is not a health hazard.
What does Absorbacide® do?
Absorbacide™ controls all economically important stored grain insect pests including weevils, beetles, borers, and moths. A single application provides 12 month protection against insect pests in:
• Stored products such as wheat, barley, rice, corn, sorghum, lentils, peas and other stored commodities.
• Warehouses and storage areas holding food products.
• Empty silos and grain handling machinery such as combine harvesters, belt conveyors and bucket elevators.
