  • From Susannah at 4/14/14 11:46 AM
    • Hi, I am considering this product, however, one of my main problems is that I have ants in my rough-hewn exposed wooden ceiling beams. I'm concerned that, even if sprayed on, it will just fall off as soon as it dries. Will this product work for my ceiling? Or can you recommend something that will? I understand there is a product made from marigolds, but I also read that product is toxic to cats, and I have 3. I need something safe for dogs, cats, and people. Thank you.
    • If there are any ledges or tops of the beams accessible, you should consider diatomaceous earth. It is a fine powder which you set on top of any surface which bugs would cross. It is nontoxic, long lasting, and ideal for higher areas of your home where the vacuum won't reach to draw it up. Here is the link for DE:

    • The answer provided to "From Linda at 8/19/10 8:46 PM" was incorrect as it related to St. Gabriel's AntEater. The answer indicated the product contains clove oil as a binder. Eartheasy's site describes the product as odor free. This puzzled me because clove oil has a distinct smell regardless of concentration. Via telephone, one of St. Gabriel's representatives insisted that the product contains NO clove oil. The product's MSDS sheet confirmed this. FYI - Clove oil can be a serious toxin to humans when present on a sustained basis.
    • Thank you for noting this. You are correct, the active ingredient for AntEater is diatomaceous earth. The product used to include clove oil as a binder but since the question you refer to was answered in 2010, the clove oil has been discontinued. Today, there is no clove oil used in the AntEater formula.

    • Can I use this around my Parrots, if so how on Birds or at Bottom of cage ?
    • Yes, this is safe to use around your parrots. However, I would recommend applying it to the bottom of the cage and if possible, removing the parrot from the room during appliaction, as the dust in the air can irritate their lungs.

    • Hello,
      I am a first time buyer of this product after hearing about it for many years. The video does not mention use of the product in a liquid form like I heard on other info sources. Liquid use sound so much more simple to apply in areas like garden, fruit trees and walls and crevices. Is this type of use correct? Please give or direct me to more comprehensive use of the substance.
      A tool was mention for application, is it shown here? Please direct. Thanks.
    • AntEater is made from diatomaceous earth, which can be mixed with water to create a liquid form. Many people will do this to make it easier to apply, but diatomaceous earth is not effective until it is dry. The AntEater is packaged in a bottle that makes it easy to apply to cracks and crevices. The tool you mentioned in your question is the dispenser tube, which can be found here: That tube is typically used with the 4 lb. bag of diatomaceous earth that we carry (found here:

    • Are there any other ingredients or inert ingredients in this product?
      Where can I find information on St. Gabriel's Organics, do they just repackage the most common brand of food grade diatomaceous earth commonly used in most other products?
    • Hi Linda,
      AntEater Organic Ant Killer is a blend of clove oil and diatomaceous earth. The clove oil serves as a binder which helps keep the diatomaceous earth, which is a powdery substance, in place. You can find information about St. Gabriel's online through Google. We have carried their products for years with satisfaction.
      AnyEater comes in a relatively small container, so customers can try out the product in their homes at very low cost. Once a customer is sold on the merits of diatomaceous earth, I would recommend buying a bag of DE, which comes in larger volume and is therefore more cost effective, and using this throughout the home where insects are a concern.
      We have used diatomaceous earth in our home for several years now, and I can personally recommend it as the most effective and safe broad spectrum insect pest control available.

  • From Angela at 7/27/10 5:16 PM
    • What about dogs and small children?
    • Angela, you may use AntEater Organic Ant Killer where dogs and small children may come in contact with it. There is no poison in the formulation. Diatomaceuos earth is the main ingredient which kills the ants, and other insects, by abrasive action. AntEater will not harm pets, humans or the environment.

    • Is this product safe to use in houses with cats? Ours often sneak onto the countertops and stove during the night and while we're at work (paw prints everywhere!). Thanks. K
    • Yes, this product is safe to use in houses with cats. It is food grade, and will only harm insects.
