I used this to control the fleas on my cats - as my cats seem to be immune to the the liquid drops I have been using and the fleas were getting out of control!

I am very impressed with how it works (and how quickly) and thought I would share my recommendation with where I got it (perhaps you can get it cheaper but I had no problems with this fleabayer) - I am interested in any comments or views?

I bought a 1kg bag from the same seller (for £6 different listing (made an offer)) and this will last me forever 250g is easily enough.

never seen or heard but I've 2 dogs so tell me more?

not sure what to tell you - you just dust it into the coat the the fleas run and die from dehydration , it has microscopic sharp bits that cut the fleas up!
it's a little different for cats as they lick it off (which also then kills the worms if they have them) - I suppose with dogs you may have to brush them after it's been on for a while

Used this for some time but does not work
Try putting a tick/flea (i did both) in a jar with some of this and you will see after 8 hours they are still alive

Have dusted around the house with it but not applied directly to coats.
Not really seen any conclusive evidence of this being effective really.
The Johnsons pills i used had a dramatic effect, but fleas have returned. Especially on the cat.
Time for another blast with the Indorex and maybe another dusting of this.
Just to note if you dust this round the house and then hoover it up, if you use an upright with a filter, it will hammer the filter hard.
Its good stuff to have about though as it also kills slugs apparently.

thank u so much ..... much better and more affordable than spot on or front line the only 2 that work according to my vet yesterday. I usually use bob Martin from bnm and wormer but the vet says it's terrible? n dosent work? funny cos my pet never had fleas or worms and I check regularly. I have a new baby jacawawa and a staff cross at 2 I've bothered you enough do il do my own research from here. sounds could definitely benifit us though. cheers <3

interesting - I found this really works, we have a long haired cat and you can see how uncomfortable he is with the fleas - but once you have put the powder on you can definitely see the change (not so much on the short haired cat), only down side is we have a slightly yellow/ pink cat instead of a white cat until it dusts off!
is it possible that the flea can avoid the dust in a jar?

if you do try it please pm me with how you got on - I also bought some paper masks as I was worried that breathing the dust might be bad for you, and therefore I dust in the garden as it will get about when the dogs shake, but yes it's very cheap compared

used it for several months
on our dogs and all over the house
look at your pet and flea bites will still be there
flea eggs will not be harmed
fleas (and ticks) still on dogs
fleas still in the house
I hoped this would work so i did give it a good try over several months
Back to the spray (Indorex Flea Spray for the house) and advantage for the dogs= no more fleas or ticks within hours of use

You know how good almost all vets are? And how well trained they are? And how concerned they are about animals? And how honest and upright almost all of them are?
If you answer yes to the above. Why on earth wouldn't you believe them when they tell you something?

Then go and search google for Bob Martins flea treatment.





I use this stuff on the chickens, never thought of using it on the cat. We tend to use a all in one wormer and flea treatment, but I suppose it would work, at least for the fleas.

Used to use this in my chicken coop but it had no effect on earwigs (much to the chicken's delight tbh)

I've used this to rid my cat of some particularly tenacious fleas and it did the trick, little bit more expensive than diatom though http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BORIC-ACID-250g-Kills-Ants-Cockroaches-Fleas-FAST-DELIVERY-/252513789481?hash=item3acafea629

Easiest way to apply is with an old shake and vac bottle (or similar) and pop a couple of pieces of stone/gravel in there as well as it tends to clump up a bit

I bought the 1kg and offered / accepted for £6.
25kg is huge - you must have a lot of animals , I have 3 chickens and not tried it on them yet due to the note "DE will also kill beneficial animals such as worms and bees so please be careful when using for agricultural pest control" + the pain in trying to catch the chickens - good to hear it works for you as well - I was wondering if for the people it does not work for is it possible they have bought fakes or maybe a watered down version or even perhaps not using it correctly or enough of it? I always rub it in to get to the skin - it makes the cat feel a little greasy to touch for a while!

Just sprinkle in the coop, no need to put it on the chickens. The mites (which is the main thing you want rid of) tend not to live on the chicken like a flea would but instead bite them while they're roosting. They return to the nooks and crannies in the coop during the day, the diatom works by cutting them as they make their way across the coop at night.

I agree with what colgridson just said about sprinkling in the coop and onto bedding. I've got 10 hens and dust them down regularly, I prob go a bit far but I had a really bad infestation when I started using it and don't want a repeat of that. I also add it to there food to help with internal parasites. I dust my cats down weekly and add it to there food as well. Not seen a flea or tick since I started doing this. Before I started this weekly treatment we spent £100s on flea treatment and the cats would always have fleas or ticks. It's surprising how fast you can go through this stuff when used as liberally as I do But 25kg should last 6months.

That's the red mites, you are correct, but you also get lice which live on chickens, that's when the chicken needs dusting directly.

I just get someone to hold the cat so he does not run away and then just pinch some powder from the packet and rub it in to the skin (takes about 10 pinches) - a duster might be better but you need to get under the top layer of fur!
