The Indoor Flea and Tick Kit contains the professional pest control products needed to successfully treat active infestations of fleas or ticks indoors. The combination of PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol spray and CimeXa Insecticide Dust offers multiple active ingredients and modes of action to provide a quick initial knockdown of adults and long-term protection from immature fleas and ticks. The fine formulation of all-natural CimeXa Dust allows a deep application into carpets, rugs, and cracks and crevices. The Indoor Flea and Tick Kit treats up to 2,000 square feet of space.
The products in the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit are effective for treating both fleas and ticks, however your applications will vary slightly depending on which pest you need to control. Regardless of which pest you are treating for, it is usually best to start treatment by treating your pets with products designed for this purpose. A topical treatment such as ZoGuard Plus for Dogs and ZoGuard Plus for Cats offers monthly control of both fleas and ticks. You can view more information about which products are best for your dogs and cats on our Flea Treatmentand Tick Treatment guides.
How to Apply the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit
STEP 1 - Natural and Non-Chemical Control
Before applying insecticides, you should practice non-chemical methods of control in the treatment areas, especially when eradicating fleas indoors.
*Wash or throw away pet bedding.
*Wash, discard, or dry clean area rugs.
*Vacuum or steam clean furniture where pets lay or rest.
*Thorough vacuuming is a crucial step of indoor flea control, in particular. Vacuum all floors, carpets, beneath furniture, and under cushions. Vacuuming not only picks up live fleas, flea dirt, and eggs, but it also provides the stimulation the pupae (immature fleas) need to exit their cocoons and to expose themselves to the insecticides that have been applied.
*It is important to discard vacuum bags or to empty bagless vacuum traps after each vacuuming so that adult pests or eggs do not escape from the vacuum cleaner and cause re-infestation.
*Vacuum every day or every other day for at least 14 days.
STEP 2 - SPRAY – PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol
PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol contains an adulticide and an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) in a ready-to-use aerosol with a non-drip application tip. The adulticide kills exposed adult insects, while the IGR prevents maturation of immature stages of fleas and ticks to interrupt the breeding cycle for up to 7 months indoors. PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol has been granted with a reduced risk status by the EPA, meaning it is extremely safe to use inside the home.
*Always shake PT Alpine well before application. If you fail to shake the can well, the product may drip, and you will need to clean the tip before applying.
*Hold can 2-3 feet from surfaces to be treated. Turn container upside down and point valve toward surface to be sprayed. Be sure to apply uniformly using a sweeping motion over carpets, rugs, flooring, floors, drapes and all surfaces of upholstered furniture including under cushions. Avoid over wetting furniture and carpeting. A fine mist or spray applied uniformly is all that is necessary to kill fleas and ticks.
*For fleas, be sure to broadcast treat the entire treatment area, particularly on carpets and rugs.
*For tick control, focus on cracks and crevices where ticks may hide, such as along baseboards, around window frames and door frames, under and behind furniture, and in localized areas of the floor where ticks may be found.
*Ticks like to climb, so remember to treat under furniture legs or other spots where ticks may be able to climb up from the floor.
*Be sure to treat pet bedding as well. Allow treatment areas to dry before allowing pets to re-enter the area.
*Keep pets and children out of the treatment area until the application has dried, usually about an hour.
*Allow spray application to dry before applying CimeXa Dust.
*PT Alpine should be stored with the cap on and out of direct sunlight. If properly stored (in a cool, dry area out of reach of children and pets), PT Alpine will have a shelf life of approximately 3 years.
STEP 3 - DUST Indoors - CimeXa Insecticide Dust
CimeXa Insecticide Dust contains 100% natural silica gel that dries up fleas that come into contact with the dust. You can apply the dust directly from the container, or you can use a hand duster such as a B&G Bulb Duster to apply the dust evenly and into fine cracks and crevices. Be sure spray applications are dry before using insecticide dust.
*For flea control, apply dust lightly and evenly as a broadcast over carpets and rugs, along baseboards, and under cushions or pet bedding.
*Dust applied to carpets and rugs should be brushed in using a stiff carpet brush or broom. This allows the very fine particles to work down into the nap of carpeting where flea eggs and pupae hide. Once the product is brushed into carpeting, regular vacuuming will not disturb it.
*For tick control, concentrate dust applications to cracks and crevices where ticks are likely to hide, such as under baseboards, under and behind furniture, and along door frames and window frames.
*Use a damp paper towel to wipe up excess dust.
*Dust does not need to be reapplied unless disturbed or removed, or if it becomes wet.
*Store CimeXa Dust in a cool, dry place, out of reach of children and pets.
STEP 4 - REPEAT!
*Fleas and ticks reproduce quickly and prolifically, so repeat treatments are almost always necessary to completely eradicate any infestations.
*Repeat spray applications every 14 days until there are no more signs of pests.
*Plan to allow 2-8 weeks for complete eradication of fleas or ticks.
*Remember that pets may bring in new adult fleas and ticks from outside, so continue the treatment of pets and outdoor areas as needed.
I just like to say that I bought the indoor flea control stuff the price is reasonable the product work immediately I had fought with these fleas for about a month I bought the stuff online and it was great my cats didn't have any effects from it I got rid of the fleas and my house is flea free now I've recommended it to my boss my daughter recommended it to me it's a very great product
Bought it for the fea and had the dog treated for flea's bath and flea collar and sprayed the house. stil seem to have some fleas was disapponited and always had good results I have bought a lot of products from you and your company,this treatmeant was done a couple weeks ago
We are sorry to hear that the Indoor Flea and Tick kit did not work up to your expectations. Flea infestations usually need to be treated 2-4 times to get complete control. Making sure you treat all of the "hotspots" and vacuuming every day or every other day will help speed up this process. Please take a few moments to read over our Flea Treatment Guide to learn how to implement a successful Flea program: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-get-rid-of-fleas-a-483.html
If you have any questions after reading the guide or if we can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. We appreciate your feedback and your business!
I had been trying for months to get rid of the flees on my dog, then there began an infestation of my home. They were suddenly in every room. I think they were even in my beard!! I could not get rid of them with other products. I used the indoor kit products according to the directions and in a few days there were no more fleas!
I have only used this 1 time, but so far I am happy with the " NO " , results , as in NO FLEAS. I use the powder around an outside feral cats house, and seems to be working. Next time I can catch her I will know more.
Is CimeXa Dust the strongest powder I can get to treat fleas in carpet?
For fleas in carpeting, we would recommend our Indoor Flea and Tick Kit, which contains CimeXa Insecticide Dust as well as NyGuard Plus Insecticide, IGR, and deodorizer. CimeXa Dust may be worked into carpeting for long-term treatment, while the NyGuard Plus should be applied as a broadcast over carpets and other flooring. Be sure to vacuum thoroughly before treatment and every day or every other day after treatment. Treatments should be repeated after 14 days. Please see our article Flea Treatment for more information and tips.
We have no pets, but have seen what seem to be fleas (they jump) in the bedroom and have nocturnal bites mainly on the ankles.
All products carry some level of toxicity but when used as directed the products in the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit are safe to use. People should be out of the area during treatment until dry. Here is a great video on how to use our Indoor Kit.
