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.
