An Unsuspecting Unlock For Flea and Tick Season
Depending on where you live flea and tick season is fast approaching.
One of the safest natural products you can use to treat flea problem is food grade diatomaceous earth. There are two types of diatomaceous earth; one that will kill insects in the garden that you find in a hardware store, and the other that is food grade and found in a pet store. The food grade version is low in crystalline silica and considered safe for pets.
Food grade diatomaceous earth is a powder made from fossilized aquatic organisms. When fleas crawl over the fine powder it scrapes the insects exoskeleton causing them to die.
Diatomaceous earth is a product that is non staining. Cover all areas such as a rug or sofa that can’t be washed, leave for 4 days and vacuum.
