I really searched for something that would work to control the fleas on my 17 year old cat. I was feeling very guilty using products that weren't even safe for me to get on my hands!! on the poor old thing. He loves the D/Earth, actually rolls around in it and is completely comfortable even in "the worst year ever for fleas" in our Florida yard. I have shared this information with all my pet loving friends.
great for fleas and ants by jules from Earth05/20/2010
It takes a few days to work and then it dries the harmful insects out.
If using outside for ants, apply directly to ant mounds. The ants only have to come into contact with a single particle of the microscopic dust for it to work.*Reapply after hard rain.
DE can be given with food for internal parasites (usually for farm animals).
For fleas, lightly dust directly on your pet. Avoid getting into eyes and nose for both you and companion (mild irritant). It can be applied just like the 'toxic' dusting powders around the house and yard.
