Sir,
Thanks for the article. Some of the article in the website recommend the Food grade Diatomaceous Earth(DE) to control the lice and other Ecto parasites. it is non chemical. its action only physical and mechanical. If you have any experience on the usage, request you to give your suggestion on DE. I hope if its good, we can use instead of chemical one.

Regards,
Neethiraja A
