To apply Diatomaceous Earth you will need a hand or power duster or you can apply by using a container with a lid that you can poke holes into and then use it to shake over the area where you want to apply the Diatomaceous Earth. We use a coffee can as a container with holes in the lid. The lid stays on securely so we don't have to worry about the contents spilling. You should wear a dust mask while applying so that you do not breathe in any of the dust.
