Holy "heck" this stuff works!
on September 3, 2017
I was at the end of the rope on what to do about our flea infestation. My cat is an indoor/outdoor cat is constantly coming into contact with neighboring cats - that coupled with the unusual heat we've had this summer - seems to have exacerbated our flea problem. I've used the awful and toxic flea bombs - on several occasions, have used the expensive flea sprays, used a variety of medication on my cat, and have given my cat several baths - which if you knew my cat - you would know how dangerous that in itself is - because he hates water.
After extensive research I came across this product, and what first grabbed my attention was the fact that the "food grade" is not toxic to humans or pets. I have a child in my home and was fearful of introducing anymore chemicals into the home; I also was fearful of putting more toxic chemicals on my cat.
I treated my entire home with this stuff, along with my yard and the exterior of my home (window sills, entry ways). Now.....this stuff is really - really messy. I wasn't sure that I could handle white powder being everywhere but I was desperate to see if this product was effective at killing fleas - as it claimed to be.
I sprinkled this product in the interior of my entire home, and didn't touch the product at all and let it sit overnight. (Around 17 hours)
When I got up the next morning, I put a pair of white socks on so that I could see whether or not any fleas jumped on me. At first I was horrified as I literally had hundreds of fleas on my socks. I was discouraged as I first thought that this product was ineffective - not realizing the fleas were actually scrambling to stay alive. Prior to using this product - I had never seen that many fleas in my home. Seeing that many fleas made me realize just how effectice the product was as it drew the fleas out of the carpet as they were trying to get away from the product.
I vacuumed up the product - vacuuming my entire home - and didn't see anymore fleas. Later that evening I vacuumed again - even the hardwood floors - and have only seen a total of two fleas. I understand that I need to vacuum - vacuum - vacuum.
I still haven't let my cat back inside as I have to treat him again. At present I mix this product with his cat food to help treat him from the inside - I also rubbed some of this product into his coat.
This product has been extremely effective - I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't usually write reviews - especially not this long. But because of how impressed I am with this product and how effective it really is, I wanted to share this information in the event it helps someone else.
