Does MotherEarth D - Diatomaceous Earth help with mite infestations?

I have a bird that has a case of mites, not wanting to use over the counter products such as sprays on him that can be harmful and cant afford a vet. So was wondering if using Mother Earth D around areas of the home will help in any way??

Answer:

You can use MotherEarth Dust in all cracks and crevices around the perimeter of the room. Apply a thin coat of MotherEarth dust to rugs and carpets. Rake (not sweep) nap back and forth, causing dust to enter rug or carpet. Let product sit overnight. Repeat application as necessary and vacuum every 3 - 4 days for effective control. MotherEarth dust does not have a fast knockdown, it can take several days for insects to die after they contact the dust.
