Use DE with your pets. Rub it into their fur to eliminate fleas and ticks (sprinkle on their bedding for the same reason), and add it to their food to deworm them.
That goes for the more exotic pets, too! If it has fur, it’s a candidate for Diatomaceous Earth.
Add DE to your pet bird’s dust bath (you do provide it one, right?). If you raise or keep chickens, do the same for them. It will relieve them of mites.

Use the same treatment for your horses as for livestock.

Going on vacation? Take along a smalll bag of DE ... Just in case!
The (hopefully rare) problem with bedbugs can be solved with fossil shell flour! Put some in a salt-
Diatomaceous Earth, about 1/2 cup, added to your bucket of grains, will kill the insects that hatch out. After sealing the bucket, roll it around to disperse the DE throughout the grain.

When building a new house (or, for some reason, removing the interior sheetrock from an exterior wall), liberally sprinkle Diatomaceous Earth on the bottom plate of the exterior walls all the way around the house (as pointed out in the presentation, below) BEFORE the insulation is installed and the wall closed in. This will keep roaches and other bugs from getting into your house. (As a side-
