Algae as an Organic Pest Control Agent

July 17th, 2009 | 2 Comments | Posted in Algae-Energy-Products

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is an organic and natural pest control agent. It consists of fossilized diatoms, which are a type of algae. DE looks like a harmless powder, but its sharp edges damage the exoskeleton of the insect and dehydrate it. Although this is deadly to many insects, it is safe around pets and people. As gardeners are looking for organic and natural alternatives to their gardening chemicals, DE is a great option for controlling many garden pests.

    more than two years ago, I wrote this article to propose my idea of the Wind Energy Skyscrapers:

    http://www.gaetanomarano.it/articles/028energy.html

    then in the days/months/years later, I proposed my idea on dozens websites, forums and blogs

    now, a New York Times article, reports an interesting study of the Harvard University

    http://greeninc.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/16/study-suggests-wind-power-potential-is-much-higher-than-current-estimates/

    http://www.pnas.org/content/106/27/10933.full.pdf%22

    the study shows that, the power of the wind, is SIX TIMES greater than known before!

    this because, the new calculations, are based on the energy produced by wind turbines 100 meters tall or more

    so my idea of Wind Energy Skyscrapers was and is extremely valuable and innovative!

    therefore, I decided to propose again my idea, to several websites, forums and blogs, in case they want to talk about it
