Hi, after reading about D.E. on the internet I have bought a large tub. I wanted to use it to rid my house of fleas. I have 2 cats that had a flea problem, we treated them both with frontline which seems to have cleared them of fleas, however 2 weeks later we are still finding fleas around the house on a daily basis... its driving us mad !!

3 Days ago using a sift, I sprinkled a thin layer of D.E over all of the floors and carpets in the house... I'm still finding fleas !! I have just vacuumed up the D.E. leaving some around the edges of the rooms. (by the way after vacuuming each room I had to clean out the D.E from the vacuum filter as it was clogging it up !) I really want this stuff to work.

Am I being impatient ? How long does it usually take ? Am I using enough ?

Please help if you can, many thanks
