Basically you've got a couple additional options there. Bedbugs don't transfer foot-to-mouth but Cimexa lasts a lot longer in exposure to moisture and is unlikely to ever support bacterial or fungal growth. It's an artificially created silicon dioxide ash crystal powder that works the same way as DE but is all sharp pointy bits and is much lighter so it picks-up on the bugs AND is carried much longer.

DE doesn't kill bedbugs tho, it only immobilizes their legs by damaging their coating and making them useless. It IS however effective against most other non stored-goods-pest infestations. A much simpler solution in the circumstance of bed legs is ye-olde-4"-duct-tape: Simply unroll a length, fold the edges over so there's sticky facing both ways and wrap it around the legs - replace every three months = grabtastic barrier and doesn't grind up the floor or pack the carpet with what's basically plant food waiting for fungus and bacteria. Calcium is the hardest thing for stuff that grows in carpet to get, spreading it around for free just isn't good and the same features of DE that damage insects will also damage carpet.

Tell them light is neither a particle NOR a wave, they'll argue about that all day and leave you alone.

Termites or Roaches around where you live? You can get a month long toxic reaction to both.

Refined sugar comes from cane, corn and beets. The trick is that sugar also comes from fruits, roots and meats as well as perfectly normal milk.

An 8oz glass of whole milk will have around 12g of sugar.

8oz of Greek Nonfat Yogurt has 8g of sugar.

A "medium" carrot has 3g of sugar. This equates to literally 8g of sugar per cup of carrot.

Just about the same number, 9g, is true of regular beets.

A cup of corn (sweet corn hand shelled) is 1.1g of sugar prior to cooking but cooking can caramelize the starch.
