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.

I don't have a pet, but my apartment was nearly infested with fleas after keeping someone's cat while they were on vacation. (One of the worst mistakes that I've ever made for more reasons that I can get into right now!)

I didn't notice any fleas during the two weeks that I had that demon possessed animal, but a little over a week after the cat was gone, I came home from work and was ambushed by about 30 of them. They were everywhere and I was horrified and very much afraid of getting sick or being infected with a secondary parasite while being bitten. Something had to be done FAST.

There were ALOT of good reviews on this product online about it's effectiveness and it was very affordable, so I purchased 6 - 16oz cans from my local grocery store @ $9 each. I treated my apartment once, then I did it again two days later and I can't tell you how pleased I am with the results.

I have a small apartment and my place got nearly infested overnight. I had to walk around my apartment with a sweatsuit and tennis shoes on with my pants stuffed inside of my socks just to keep those b#st#rds off of me!!! I was terrified, because I just signed a new lease and I couldn't move out.... nor did I have the money to pay $500 for Orkin to deal with it. (and there was no way that I was going to tell my landlord about this).

I got this stuff and literally hosed my apartment down with it before I left for work the next morning. I didn't take any prisoners!!! When I got home that evening only 5 fleas could muster the strength to bite me.... and after I repeated the massacre two days later, they were completely gone.

Although this product does have the ingredient that kills the eggs/larvae, I'm not taking any chances. I'm going to spray my apartment at least two more times over the next 3 weeks to make sure that the hatchlings die as well.

I'm not a big fan of chemicals, but I didn't have time to "go green" while hundreds of fleas were laying 50 eggs a piece per day in my home. This stuff takes care of the situation and FAST. That being said, please protect yourself while using this product. I wore several layers of clothing, head scarves, gloves, safetly goggles and a mask.... then I immediately left my apartment for 8 hours. I stronly suggest you do the same. Please consult your doctor if you have small children or if you are nursing.

I HIGHLY recommend this product if you mean business about killing fleas in your home. It gets the job done FAST.

This stuff is amazing. I had a cat years ago that was always going outside and had my home so flea infested that I could see the things jumping on my legs. This was the first product I decided to try and am glad I did. I sprayed the home down once and never saw another flea again. Ive recommended it to people who all had good luck with it as well. Since my bad experience with fleas, I've smartened up and keep good flea and tick repellant on my pets, but at least I know if it ever becomes a problem again, the Raid will take care of it instantly.

This product was not made for households with cats. The product was designed to be used with households with dogs. This product description should say this and have a warning on the main ingredient which is a toxic insecticide called permethrin/pyrethrin (basically both are from the same chemical source). It is extremely toxic and deadly for cats.

After a month of fighting to end the infestation of fleas in my house mission accomplished. But later on I found out there were fleas in my car because when my cat had fleas we had to transport her to the vet. I was going to try the fogger in my car but with all the precautions that had to be taken. I decided not to risk getting my car blown up so I came across this product, sprayed it all over my car one night and once I woke up in the morning the problem was solved I was not getting attacked anymore whenever I entered my car. This is the best product to end infestation. After spending so much money on flea products such as Hertz (does not work sprayed it directly at a few flea and used the powder and those damn fleas didn't slow down or died) I though there was no solution until I came across this product and this was going to me my last try nd thanks God it worked I wish I would have used it earlier

This does not saturate the area, and seems to kill on contact as well as help prevent! I bought a ton of it for the summer and only needed one can! Love it!

This product was great. After the first usage of the product, I noticed that the scratching activity of my dog decrease tremendously. One more wash of my dog and the fleas were gone.

This is the best product I have ever used - forget all the flea bombs and try this. It took 2 cans to cover my whole house but I found it at Target for $7. First apply a heavy coat and then for the next 2 days apply a light coating. I sprayed my couches bedding and everything I could think of. I used this in combination with Naturvet Herbal Flea Spray, which I also highly recommend. I used the flea spray on my cats 2 days in a row (I applied quite a bit, not just a misting), it is now the third day and I can not find one flea on either of my cats. We were all being bitten at least 10 times a day and in the middle of the night and now no one has been bitten in 4 days. I will do a light spraying every week just to be sure and keep them away. I will never have to buy advantage again!!!
