First make sure you have Food Grade DE then use a mask over your nose & mouth. Food Grade DE is very safe I used it last year and this year.DE is good for Fleas,Ticks,Roaches & Ants any bug that has a Exoskeleton the DE cuts the Exoskeleton so then the bug dehydrates and dies. If you look at DE under a powerful microscope it looks like a barrel so the reason you need the mask is so the DE does not get in your lungs. You can mix DE in water and drink it gets rid of internal worms, does not protect against Heart worms since pets get that from flying mosquitoes but would get rid of tape worms, round worms,whip worms, intestinal worms. I sprinkle it heaviest down the fence lines I do not think my neighbors do any thing to get rid of fleas,then sprinkle round the base of the house, if fleas are really bad sprinkle it in the house leave it down a couple of days then vacuum it up. I have sprayed the house with Flea & Tick spray that is suppose to knock them dead and keep them out for 7 months think it is Vet Kim its a black spray can.This year just using the DE no fleas or ticks but i have two dogs a Dobe & a Doxie think it would be harder to deal with Fleas on cats if they go roaming around outside.Good Luck.View Thread
You might do better with a better quality food some times it cost more but you feed less due to it having denser calories. Allot of dogs are allergic to chicken,corn,wheat, soy products.Also less vet bills.View Thread
