diatomaceous earth question(3 posts)
We don't have an infestation that I know of, but I've been exposed daily at work to a large infestation and carried 2 or 3 home which I caught and killed in time..... I hope. Anyway, I've been doing inspecting, dealing with clutter, laundry, bagging just in case, but for more protection I am wondering if I should use some food grade DE? I've been sleeping in the recliner in the livingroom...and I caught the bugs in my bathroom as I was getting ready to shower ( a long ways away), but I also question my laundry room in the basement. I have a rather large older farm house. So my main question is, without buying this stuff by the 50 lb bag, where would I put it to get the most bang for my buck?
From the FAQ:
DE or any pesticide dust is for use only in areas where the living things present are ones you want to die. Cracks, crevices, wall voids etc, applied then left undisturbed.
Apply it, wearing your PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, ventilate the place when done before removing your safety gear.
More importantly, what kind of work is introducing you to a "large infestation?"
The work in particular is home health nursing.. I don't so much want to be a nurse anymore. and I've been one for 30 years...
