Diatomaceous Earth is one of the most effective tools against fleas and many other parasites and problems in the life of your animals (and you!).
One of the best sites for finding out information on how to use Diatomaceous earth is www.wolfcreekranch.net.
I also found an article in my inbox today from Only Natural Pet products that explains how to use DE specifically for fleas in your home and it has some good, practical advise.
There are more specific instructions for use at the bottom of the page and the link is in the paragraph above.
There’s nothing quite like a flea infestation to strain the harmony of your household. We hate to see our cats and dogs suffering with fleas, but we know that the harsh, and often toxic chemical products offering a quick fix can come at a high price for everyone in the family – pets, people, and the environment as well. (For more information on the dangers of chemical flea and tick products, see our Information Resource links at the end of product description).
Fortunately, Only Natural Pet Store has a comprehensive line of natural products that work in tandem (see Complementary Approaches below) to help keep your pets and your household safely free from these stubborn parasites. Using the best of nature’s ingredients for remedies against fleas and ticks, you can take control of your household and bring back the peace – all using a natural approach that keeps everybody healthy and protects the planet.
Only Natural Pet All-In-One Flea Remedy – The Foundation of Natural Flea Control
Our All-In-One Flea Remedy is the ultimate natural weapon against fleas. Named "All-In-One" because it kills fleas in all three zones of flea control (on pets, in the home, and in your yard), this non-toxic, natural compound has been used to kill insects for centuries. It is widely used for pest control in agriculture and gardening, and it’s even used in livestock feed and in storage of grain used for human consumption, since it’s harmless when ingested.
Comprised of diatomaceous (dye-atom-ay’-shus) earth, or "DE," a mineral substance formed by the fossil remains of prehistoric algae, this powder is fine and smooth to the touch. While non-toxic to people and pets, at the microscopic level, it is razor-sharp and is lethal to insect pests like fleas and ticks, whose shells are cut as the powder covers their bodies. Fleas, along with their eggs and larvae, become dehydrated and die within hours when exposed to this powerful substance.
This mechanical, rather than chemical killing action protects your pets and the environment because it doesn’t create chemically resistant "super fleas," which become increasingly harder to eradicate. It also protects your human and animal family members, as it won’t pollute your home or our water supply with chemical residues that can linger in our bodies and the environment for years, causing damage to our health, and the health of our planet.
The versatile, odorless powder can be safely applied everywhere fleas hide – directly in pets’ fur, in their bedding, carpets, furniture, and even in your yard. This is extra bad news for fleas, since most of their growth and reproduction time is spent around rather than on your pet. All-In-One Flea Remedy can penetrate the smallest spaces and the closest of carpet weaves to get at the fleas where they are most vulnerable and break their reproductive cycle.
With noticeable results seen in 2-3 days, our All-In-One Flea Remedy will make your pets and your home flea-free within weeks – with no chemicals, toxins, fumes, oily residues, or unnatural substances of any kind. All-In-One is an elegant solution from Nature offering effective and safe flea control that's economical, too. There's no need to pay a lot for chemical treatments that have too high a cost, in more ways than one. Thousands of pet owners have used this natural approach to flea control with complete success. Choose All-In-One Flea Remedy and join the ranks of the many eco-smart and health-conscious pet lovers who are committed to safe, effective, non-chemical approaches to winning the war on fleas.
