There are 2 things you need to do if you want to completely get rid of dog fleas in your house.
Natasha, Your site is very helpful and gets right to the point. I used DE a few years ago, very successfully, to get rid of fleas in my apartment and treat my cats. This weekend our dogs came home from my in-laws farm completely covered in fleas so I went to work this morning. I needed a quick reminder on the application process and your site was perfect. I would like to say that when I use it in my house I do have to wear a mask while applying because it bothered my lungs pretty bad last time. I also think I used too much. I apply it with my hands, they get a little dry but nothing a good wash and some lotion won’t cure. It does make a bit of dust when spreading with a broom, but it’s worth it to me. I almost went crazy last time and DE saved my sanity.
After bathing the dog and not seeing fleas on him even though they were in the house, that changed 4 days ago. I bathed him and there were numerous fleas on him. Immediately after that flea bath, I took him to my sister’s where he is still, and he doesn’t seem to have any fleas on him. However, they are still in the house and it seems nothing will kill them.
