    I read somewhere that DE was a must have product. I ordered 1 pound of it and I wonder how often I need to use it. I bought the food grade organic kind thinking it's the safest for the girls. Perhaps the DE is used on a as needed basis??? Just today I saw a deer tick on my dog.[​IMG] Which means the bugs are starting to come out. We have loads of deer and wood ticks in the spring.
