THIS PRODUCT SAVED ME FROM THE FLEAS!
on September 12, 2016
Have been waiting to review this! Bought this when my indoor cat somehow got fleas. For about two weeks we tried putting down diatomaceous earth and vacuuming it up. We vacuumed every day for about a month and we were still seeing fleas. Finally, we did some hard and long research on the best chemicals to treat your house for fleas with and we found that in order to successfully stop the cycle of fleas in your home you will need an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) and an adulticide (we purched Permethrin SFR from another seller on Amazon). That way you have a product that kills the eggs and larvae and a product that kills the adults. We took my kitty to the vet to have a flea bath and sprayed the whole house with a mix of Nyguard and Permethrin SFR. After the first spray, we still saw a few fleas for about a week. Then we decided to mix Nyguard into our carpet shampooer and shampoo with it. Now, about two weeks later we haven't seen any fleas. I remember reading a review for this product that said to give it about two weeks and you will see a difference- that is true! After doing more research on Nyguard, I have learned that not only does it keep the eggs from hatching, but it keeps baby fleas from maturing and being able to bite and reproduce. I will say, I was a little disapointed at the size of the bottle for the price but it got rid of our fleas and we still have a little under half a bottle left over. I would also like to note that on the left hand side where you measure the product, our's was missing it's lid so once we took of the seal, we had to stuff a paper towel in there. Overall, I am so happy with this product and would consider it essential to anyone having a really tough time with fleas. I would also like to say that after dealing with fleas for the second time in a year (my boyfriend had them before this and he called an exterminator) I have learned that the best flea medication for cats is Revolution. I tried Advantage II and they were living like nothing had ever happened. I live in the South where fleas are really bad and have become immune to it.
