Diatamaceous earth works becsue it has sharp edges.  Which is why you do not
want to breathe it.  greg

We have used it indoors, spraying it inside walls,
and around the base of the siding outside on the house, and around basement
windows, to keep out ants.

You can get a  bottle that you squeeze and it poofs some out to apply.
but be careful not to breathe it.
It is not actually "toxic" but the dust would be like any other lung
irritant.

But note it kills all bugs, including good ones

And I seem to remember it is also harmful to earth worms.
