|DE is diatomaceous earth. "Is a natural substance that is actually created from the remains of diatoms, microscopic water plants that are like algae." It works very well for killing fleas and all other bugs with exoskeletons, by drying or cutting them and making them dehydrate. With that being said, even if you use "food grade" DE, always use a dust mask and goggles to prevent any dust from going into your lungs and getting into your eyes. Because it can cut the very small alveoli at the end of your lungs. Here is just one of MANY sites I found by Googeling "diatomaceous earth and your lungs", http://www.fleacontrolbook.com/naturalfleacontrol/diatomaceous-earth -the-a-miracle-cure-for-flea-control/ this is where I got the first part of my quotation from.
Meowma has some and uses it all the time, you should see her when she does! mol.. she has on a white dust mask, clear goggles and big yellow kitchen gloves! BUT IT IS WORTH IT as it DOES KILL ALL BUGS!
Just please remove ALL pets before applying it. NEVER use it on ANY pet! Always be sure to follow all safety instructions on the package!
