Ecology Works Dust Mite & Flea Control Powder - A Closer Look
Before treating an area, test an inconspicuous spot to evaluate any sort of staining. Vacuum all surfaces you plan to treat before spraying. Once the area has been prepped, mix Ecology Works Dust Mite and Flea Control with water, then spray using any generic spray bottle. Spray surfaces evenly. Be sure not to saturate the area you are treating. Avoid contact with the wet surfaces until dry and flush your spray bottle with clean water when finished (to avoid the spray bottle becoming plugged).
How Much Powder and Water to Mix for Use in the Spray Bottle:
1/2 Cup DMFC + 1 Quart Water = Treats 50 Sq. Ft.
1 Cup DMFC + 1/2 Gal. Water = Treats 100 Sq. Ft.
2 Cup DMFC + 1 Gal. Water = Treats 200 Sq. Ft.

added some to laundry...made stuff stiff otherwise diluted with water in spray bottle seemed to help but just started using
- It Helps
I used this product on everything... It's only been a couple weeks and I can already tell a bit of a difference. It says that it can take up to 8 weeks to see the full effects. I use with the Ecology Works Anti-Allergen spray.
- dust mites
I have a doberman who has a severe allergy to dust mites. After shampooing carpets and spraying my dogs bedding, I noticed a definite decrease in his itching. Thanks for a product that works.
- Dust is right
This product is a powder that comes in a bag. You have to get your own spray canister, mix the product, spray it on, then vacuum it off. A bit of a hassle for something like this. I'd rather they sell it in the spray bottle ready to spray, or something that afixes to the vacuum. The fact is, even after going through all these steps, it's not clear if the stuff actually works or not. I could not tell a difference in the environment.
- Dust Mitex
I've used it but don'tknow if it's working - haven't seen any dust mites.
- pretty good
My sister complained of being bitten by fleas in our carpet and said if we didn't do something about it she would stop visiting us. I used Dustmitex on the carpet and she's still visiting!
- NO MORE RUNNY NOSE!
VACUUM WITH MY ALLERGY VACUUM THEN SPRAY THE DUSTMITEX AND LET IT SIT FOR A FEW HOURS TO KILL ALL THE LITTLE SUCKERS. WAKE UP EVERY DAY FOR NEXT WEEK WITH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH LESS ALLERGIES. I LOVE IT... TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT IT.
- like Improvement
I followed the simple mixing instructions and unfortunately, was not able to get to every nook and cranny in my living room and bedroom trying to spray this product. I realize though that after a couple weeks my symptoms have come back which means that I also need to get additional products like anti-mite bed covering, etc. But, overall, I would say that I remain positive about your product. You will definitely be hearing from me for other products, for sure.
- Sleeping Alone
It use to take me hours to fall asleep. I would lay awake itching just thinking of the dust mites invading my body and my bed. I started using DustMitex in my bedding and it eases my mind to know that I am finally sleeping alone. Thank You, Achoo.
- Immediate Results
My husband and our cat (a hairless sphynx) both had bumps on their skin from dust mite allergies. We sprayed DustMiteX on our carpet and in all the nooks and crannies in our house, and noticed results immediately. Both husband and cat have much better skin, and we saw their allergy bumps go down that evening! We've already recommended the product to friends, who have already placed their orders!

DustMite and Flea Control
The Ecology Works DustMite and Flea Control is the least expensive method we offer in killing dust mites in carpet and upholstery. Very easy to use if you have a steam vacuum because you just mix the specified amount of DustMite and Flea Control with water. If you do not have a steam cleaner, then you have to use a spray bottle. Like most things that are in their concentrate form, the The Ecology Works DustMite and Flea Control can be strong. This safe and effective solution can treat carpets and furniture, helping to keep them free of dust mites and fleas for months.
What I like about DustMite and Flea Control
- Cost effective
- Re-sealable pouch
- Lasts at least 8 weeks before you have to reapply
- Great for steam cleaners
- Comes in two different bag sizes: 8 oz. and 2 lb. bag
- Eco-friendly and safe to use throughout the home
What I dont like about DustMite and Flea Control
- Can be a bit messy because it is a powder that has to be mixed with water
- Has an odor in the concentrate form (powder)
In summary, I give DustMite and Flea Control powder by Ecology Works 4 out of 5 stars. For those looking for an efficient and the most cost effective way to kill dust mites in carpet and upholstery, DustMite and Flea Control is the answer. Although I think there are a few inconveniences using DustMite and Flea Control over some other products that we carry, it can be very suitable for those who dont mind mixing the formula with water to save money.
With anything you’re unsure of, we ALWAYS recommend a small test spot in an inconspicuous area. With leather though, you shouldn’t necessarily need it for the dust mites. Leather is very dust mite resistant, and the only real way they can make their way into leather furniture would be via a seam.
I hope that helps you some.
