Introduction:

Diatomite (Celite, Diatomaceous earth) (is a friable light-colored sedimentary rock that is mainly composed of the siliceous skeletal remains of diatoms. It is a very porous rock with a fine particle size and a low specific gravity. These properties make it useful as a filter media, an absorbent, and as a lightweight filler for rubber, paint, and plastics.

 

Usage & Advantages:

  • Natural freshwater diatomaceous earth is used in agriculture for grain storage as an anticaking agent, as well as an insecticide. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a feed additive to prevent caking.
  • It is also used as a growing mediumin potted plants, particularly as bonsai soil. Bonsai enthusiasts use it as a soil additive or pot a bonsai tree in 100% diatomaceous earth. In vegetable gardening it is sometimes used as a soil conditioner, because like perlite, vermiculite, and expanded clay, it retains water and nutrients, while draining fast and freely, allowing high oxygen circulation within the growing medium.

硅藻土在园艺中的作用主要表现在:土壤改良剂:PH值中性、无毒,悬浮性能好,吸附性能强,在土壤中能起到保湿、疏松土质、延长药效肥效时间,助长农作物生长效果。

 

硅藻土能够杀虫,原因在于其粉末的每一细微颗粒都带有非常锐利的边缘,与害虫接触时,可刺透害虫体表,甚至进入害虫体内,不仅能引起害虫呼吸、消化、生殖、运动等系统出现紊乱,而且能吸收3~4倍于自身重量的水分,致使害虫体液锐减,在失去10%以上的体液时死亡。硅藻土也会吸收昆虫身体的外层蜡质,从而使昆虫脱水而死。硅藻土以机械方式杀虫,而非化学方式,所以害虫永远不会对其产生抗药性,更重要的是硅藻土对高等动物(包括人)无毒无害,所以也可以作为宠物杀虫剂。
