So, I was hanging out, chatting at my local Agway today (something I won't admit to everyone I know). The owner and I got to talking about natural methods of worming vs. medication (we don't have worms, as far as I know, but I like natural methods!) and he swears by DE. That got us off on a tangent about all the exciting uses for DE around the house, coop, and yard. Then he mentioned the dreaded word... BEDBUGS. The mere thought of them gives me the heebiejeebies. Since there seems to be such an increase of bedbug infestations lately, people are calling him all the time asking if they have anything will take care of them. And he insists... DE. I'm flying to a city next week that was recently ranked in the top 5 of infested cities in the country (ewwww!) and I'll be staying in a hotel that insists it is bedbug-free, but one never knows... So I'm thinking of dusting my suitcase a with a bit of DE before and after, and maybe keep my suit in a sealed plastic bag? Has anybody ever tried this on household items? Or heard of it being effective?
