I got this DE all over the house. What a mess! I was able to count how many times Ace would be itching or biting himself on both hands within a half an hour. Its been a day and I can only count on one hand. Loving this stuff so far, just looks like a pain to clean up.

The best product I've found is Bug-Off from Springtime Inc. Springtime, Inc. | All Natural Supplements for Horses, Dogs, and People.
It takes a few weeks to start working, but I use it with Bear and he never gets ticks or fleas!

Free food and care to rescues just takes one click a day

Due to the amount of fosters coming into my home I treat with DE every 3-4 months. I've tried many ways and it can be such a mess. Because I have hardwood floors its important the DE gets between the cracks. The application I've been using for the past two years is easy, fast and no mess. Before I throw my bed sheets in the washer I sprinkle DE in the center. Twist the top and go around each room and bang the sheets to the floor. It creates a light layer of DE over everything. This will allow the DE to work for months. The dust is so fine and not visible to the eye. Make sure to put the dogs outside before doing this. Also, no flying bugs last more than 24 hours in my house.

I trail walk my dogs daily. When we return from them running in the woods during tick season, I dust DE on their coats. The next day I will find flat dead ticks on their beds. Love this stuff!

All I can really offer is moral support. We have fought fleas off and on for years and I understand what you mean that it seems like nothing will work! I think it is especially difficult if you have multi animals, as we have. We just keep them on Frontline all summer and it seems like it controls it somewhat, although if we have a real humid summer, it doesn't seem to completely solve the problem.
