We used DE last year after we had new neighbors move in next door who had dogs and cats. The animals were on our property more than anything and soon we were infested with fleas. Heck we did not know we had fleas, and our little toddler was eaten left and right. Anyhow , we purchased the DE, and sprinkled it all over the carpets, the back yard , behind the washer /dryer/ cupboards, crawl space etc.. and the darn things were gone without the use of harsh chemicals etc.
I got a paintbrush and applied on the walls, ( u can't see it), behind the sinks, toilet, sprinkled behind couches, along the front door and back door, etc.. and the dang Texas tree roaches you see also started to drop like flies.
Well that is my story,and I can't say enough positive comments about the product. Oh make sure you use food grade only.

While de is amazing there are a few things to be aware of. First, do not breathe it. Its extremely dangerous to breathe, not unlike silica or asbestos. Second, it is non selective, meaning it will kill all bugs including the beneficial ones ( honeybees, etc). It kills by making many small cuts on the exoskeleton thus dehydrating the bug. Care should be taken when applied to minimize exposure to beneficials. And once it gets wet it is useless. So while it is good outdoors, once it rains the powder turns to paste and it meeds to be reapplied.
