I have lived in my studio apt for almost 4 years and quickly discovered a nasty side to apt living ..bugs. It has been bad enough battling the roaches but a month ago a new and even worse menace appeared . I started getting a itchy rash that only got worse and wouldn't go away , I couldn't figure out what it was . Finally after almost 2 weeks I found the answer to what was really going on...bed bugs ! I had never had them before so I didn't have a clue. I sprayed bug spray and slept on the floor that night . I was angry as I lay there on my floor that night and vowed I would get my bed back and I would get rid of these pests that had made me miserable. I got a air mattress ( sleeping on the hard floor sucked ) and researched . I knew I couldn't afford a exterminator so I would have to do it myself. I found out that Hot Shot Bed Bug and Flea spray was cheap and had rated the highest in a study of bed bug sprays but it had no lasting effects . Then I found out about DE and how it can be used in the long term to get rid of bed bugs . I decided that a combo of the two was my best battle plan , the Hot Shot for immediate effect and DE for long term effect. After having gotten my weapons I went to war . I did the things that are normally recommended to fight the insidious creatures like throwing away my day bed set , washing my bedding and vacuuming ( throwing out what was collected immediately). I then sprayed everything including my mattress with the Hot Shot spray . I waited a few hours for the spray to dry then using a condiment dispenser I lightly put the DE around my furniture and on my mattress and throughout my apt . I then covered my mattress with a bed bug resistant cover . I didn't sleep in my bed because I wanted to give the DE time to work but I sprayed the floor every night.Read more ›

A couple of years ago I purchased a tiny packet of diatomaceous earth at a farmer's market. It cost $10 for 2 ounces. The seller told me how effective it was against fleas. I was really pleased with the results when I used it on my dog but when I ran out I couldn't find the same one again. So I was excited to try this one when I saw it here, especially since it is priced very reasonably.

First of all, this is a very fine powder, as fine as talc. There is no smell and it's super easy to use. I rubbed some into the coat of my big dog, a little goes a long way. She didn't mind at all. I have an 8 month chiweenie puppy too and I'm pleased that I can use it on her without any worries. I don't use those chemical drops because (a) I hate using any chemicals or drugs on myself or my animals and (b) those flea drops have an accumulative effect and can make your animal very sick. I am also using this on my 4 cats, which is great because they all hate baths. So far the animals are flea free and I'm sure they will continue to stay that way with regular use.

I hope more and more people start to use this for pest control in and around the home, flea control on their animals and in the garden. Organic is the safe way and the way of the future. I will certainly be buying this again!

Saved us about $4000. We had bed bugs, operative word...HAD. I freaked out when I found out treatment for our entire house would be around $4000. I started researching everything I could. I contacted every entomologist I could and reached out for assistance. After getting replies, I bought several things for my onslaught, one of which was Diatomaceous Earth powder. We also bought a steamer, a new bed (which we were already going to purchase anyway), new sheets and bedding, bed bug cups for the bed frame, and a duster (that I hated). I liberally treated around every wall, and in every electrical outlet in the house for several weeks. I would vacuum once a week and replace with more dust, except for the outlets. The bed bug cups also allowed us to monitor any movement to or from the bed or bed frame to check progress. After steaming all furniture, and bed frames, with the application of the dust, we haven't seen another bed bug in about 2 months now. Don't just rely on the powder to work alone. Be aggressive and devote an entire weekend or more to this project. Check under and clean every surface in the infected area. At the price of all of the materials we bought, it was worth a gamble, and so far it's paid off.

I can't begin to express how grateful I am for this stuff! Worked like a dream! My home is prone to a moderate outbreak of fleas around this time of year and being allergic to flea bites makes it a miserable and painful ordeal for me.
Having a very active 18 month old also makes finding a safe product that I'm comfortable using impossible. Last year we paid for a professional to come spray our home with an "all natural" chemical that left permanent white spots on our wool rugs and it took three costly visits plus weeks for the fleas to start dying off. This year when I started to see fleas and suffer from bites, I purchased an all natural Sentry powder from petsmart which smelled awful and did not do a darn thing.
Out of desperation and not wanting to spend hundreds for an exterminator, the internet led me to discovering the supposed wonders of diatomaceous earth so I thought I'd give it a shot. Within a day of spreading it around the baseboards and using it on our rugs we started to see less fleas. By day three the fleas had completely vanished! I keep expecting them to show back up any minute but it's been a few weeks and they haven't.
The powder is extremely fine but based on recommendations from other reviewers we bought a pest pistol which helped to spread it in a thin line along baseboards. I used a considerable amount on my rugs, swept it into the fibers with a broom and left it sitting overnight before vacuuming with no discoloration issues. I honestly can't say enough good things about this stuff and so happy to have found it!
