Given that volcanic ash has a similar mode of action to other inert dusts, such as diatomaceous earth and nanoparticulate dusts used for insect pest control, it is expected that inert dusts also will cause mortality and sub-lethal effects through chronic dietary exposure, adding to the contact toxicity, which is typically the major factor considered when determining efficacy of inert dusts.
