DE can be sprayed or whitewashed by mixing 1 cup DE with 1/2 Gallon of water. Stir frequently and spray/paint trees, yards, and fences. I would be careful spraying it on
plants that get a lot of bee action or need pollination from bees though.. it will kill the bees too not only the pests. You will need to reapply after rain.
