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!
