DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR PEST CONTROL
Cover the affected area with DE Powder at the rate of 1 KG per 100m square For Fleas, Ticks, and Lice
Lightly work the material into the hair of the animal. Use Duster, brush or comb to work the material down to the skin. Pay strict attention to places where the animal cannot reach, such as the scalp. Dust the ears of the animal with care. Dust the animal's bedding and areas where the animal sleeps, as well as cracks and crevices adjacent to them. Repeat once a week or as necessary. Individual ticks observed on the animal should be removed. DE will deter pests from taking up home on your pets as well as kill those already there.
For animals confined to a specific area infested with fleas and ticks and mites etc, dust the entire area with DE.
