Ah girl, you tickle me!
I actually have an article written up on the topic but nowhere to put it *sigh* Here is an excerpt:
"Thoroughly apply the powder to your pet, avoiding contact with the eyes, as it may cause mild irritation. A damp towel over the eyes while powdering prevents the issue. If it gets into the eyes just rinse it out with water or eye solution. Rub DE into the animalï¿½s fur ensuring that you are getting the creases in the folds of their skin and ears; anywhere pests love to hide. Leave the powder on your pet for 24 hours, then rinse and repeat as necessary. It is effective when applied to wet or dry fur. Depending on the level of the outbreak it can take from 24 hours up to a week for a heavy infestation with the average being between 24 to 48 hours.
For a flea infestation you will also want to de-flea your household. Pillows, stuffed animals, beds, linens, carpet, furniture; anything that breathes, powder and allow those items, that can, to sit overnight in tied trash bags; wash and vacuum items once your pet is free and clear of any pests. This is essentially an organic version of bug bombing your household without the hazards to your family or pets.
Finally, treat your outside areas. DE is safe on plant life. Dampen the area to allow for better adhesion. Generously spread throughout and leave it. To prevent further outbreaks reapply as necessary, typically after a heavy rain. Your pet will be grateful to be rid of the pesky hitchhikers and you will be happy that youï¿½ve kept your family safe from potentially harmful chemicals."
Feel free to take the advise but please
