    happy cats happy owner

    By Amy on 09/16/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I was not sure of product at first, being so cheap, but I trust this company for good products. I have been using Frontline all summer and it has failed me these last two months. I put this on my cats yesterday was not sure what they would think about being dusted well they loved it. Strange critters I have! I dipped a comb in the powder and just ran it through their hair then pour it on their bellies and combed it in. It has only been 12 hours and no fleas - not one. They are very happy. So am I. Try this product you will be happy, pets will be happy also.

    Solved all my pest problems

    By Cf on 09/27/2011

    I purchased this product to treat my goats for lice, which worked very well. Then I used in on my dogs and cat, success again. But the real kicker is what it has done for my ant problem. My house was infested with several colonies of ants and I tried everything to get rid of them. Finally I tried this, putting it into the cracks where I saw them coming in. When they found a new crack, I sprinkled more. I sprinkled it around outside the house when I saw trails leading into the house. This has done such a good job that I left a cake on the counter overnight and still no ants!

    Garden, Pet, and livestock dust

    By Frank on 06/12/2012

    A very high quality insecticide; it can be applied directly on the animals, yet kills usually in minutes. I sometimes use it on fire ants, and it is very effective.

    verdict's out

    By Terry on 10/17/2011

    Verified Purchase

    Seemed to kill fleas on pets - also used on an outside rug to get the fleas - worked fine. I like the fact that this can be used on other pests, and, as it's a powder, has residual effects.

Q
How long after you apply Hi-Yield Garden, Pet, and Livestock Dust to your cats do you have to go without touching them?
A

While Hi-Yield Garden, Pet, and Livestock Dust is labeled to be used on cats, please be very cautious due to cats being sensitive to Permethrin, which is the active ingredient. If used correctly by using the rates shown per pound of the animal and then rubbing it in with a rubber glove to get down to their skin, you do not have to wait any period of time to touch them, after the application is complete. Please review the product label for complete instructions, and let us know if you need additional recommendations for products.
