Skip the Foggers, Buy this Product Instead!
on July 9, 2011
We don't own any pets, but that didn't make us immune to fleas. My child somehow picked up a few fleas on her clothing while at a friend's house and they hitchhiked to our home. At first we just found a few in our carpet on our bathroom floor. We washed everything, and then began vacuuming the entire house every day as is recommended to get rid of fleas. After thoroughly cleaning the house, a flea jumped out of the carpet and bit my foot. My husband then said it was time for poison, and I agreed! We bought two cans of this spray and used it on the carpets and couches in our den first. Since our bedrooms are at the opposite end of the house I felt it might be safe to stay. I would recommend though that when you spray your carpets with this you do the entire house at once and then leave for a couple of hours. The smell dissipates pretty quickly. Also, wear socks when spraying. The instructions say the product should not make contact with skin and if it does to wash thoroughly. I had it all over my feet because it makes the carpets damp. We sprayed our entire house, our car, our vacuum cleaner, and anywhere we thought a flea might have made it home. Then we continued vacuuming every day for a week. We haven't seen a flea since, much to our relief. The carpet spray is very easy to use and much less intrusive and time consuming than setting off a flea "bomb" and having to clean every surface afterward.
