Re: If you buy diatomaceous earth- food grade, where?

Definately treat your yard. There is a spray- Beyer I think. As for inside, I only use DE, and I dust my animals with it once a month. They run around looking like ghosts for a day or so, and we have never had to resort to frontline. (frontline is pretty toxic stuf, and my kids kiss and hug our animals, and the animals have full access to our home, so putting chemicals on the pets wouldn't work for us.) We had a HORRIBLE flea infestation one time when I was a kid, and I remember my mom vacuuming, and washing bedding, and spraying posionous room spray and washing the dogs for weeks trying to control it. All in all, it wasn't that dramatic- they are just little tiny bugs, but they were really hard to get rid of. So, have no fear!
