Children and pets should not be in the same room being treated. Do not treat pets with this product. Be careful not to use around ornamental plants.

Important Information

Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.

    Too much work

    By Gloria on Aug 15, 2019

    I suppose it would work ok. But I was hoping a powder, that would work in. I guess I didnt read the directions well when I ordered.

    Read directions before buying

    By Jeanbeatle on Nov 18, 2018

    Would not recommend very work intensive. Clean carpet first brush powder into carpet and not vacuum for three weeks? I’d choke on the dog hair!

    Great Product

    By sgraet on Apr 13, 2018

    In an age when everything is toxic, this product really works great and is safe for my animals. With the added flea and tick threat from living next to livestock, I couldn't have found a better product anywhere! I highly recommend this product!

    It says to avoid contact with Pets and Yourself

    By MooMoo on Jan 4, 2016

    I've sprinkled this in the inside entrance of my closet plus in my truck cabin. And will wait. The directions do say to avoid the powder from coming in contact with dogs and cats -- and with YOURSELF (skin and eye and avoid inhaling) so it's not exactly THAT safe. It's the same as other boric acid flea killers out there. I'll have to figure out a schedule with the house and the cats later.

    Great product. Used on carpet. works well. Takes a few days for results. But that is good because it is natural and won't harm my babies( dogs and cat)
