When my dogs get itchy now, and see me grab my jar of DE, they run for the door.
We then go out, where they run for a spot in the grass, and they lay down, impatient for their "dusting".
I work with it a little at a time, because I don't want it to dust into their nose or eyes...but my yellow one especially LOVES this dusting so much that she MUST kiss me while I'm dusting her! lololol
When I'm done with her sides, she then rolls over, exposing her belly, as if to say, "Don't forget HERE, don't forget HERE!" lol
I have less of a problem with earwigs in my basement now! (I dusted the carpet, let it sit, and vacuumed the next day, and also put a dusting around the perimeter of my house.)
