    Q
    Is CimeXa Dust the strongest powder I can get to treat fleas in carpet?
    A

    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.

    Q
    How toxic is the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit?
    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.
    A

    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.

    Q
    What products can be used to kill ticks and their eggs?
    Our pest service told us 3 months ago that what we thought was a tick was a harmless bug, and now we have a big tick problem. Please help and tell me what will work to get rid of these buggers!
    A

    Using the NyGuard Plus and Cimexa Dust combination that is in the Indoor Flea and Tick Kit will treat all stages of fleas and ticks. NyGuard Plus kills all stages of ticks quickly and provides residual control of ticks and fleas. The formulation is a combination of a pyrethroid, the insect growth regulator (IGR) NyGuard, and a synergist. CimeXa Dust may be worked into carpeting for long-term treatment. We also carry an Outdoor/Indoor Fleas and Tick Kit that contains the products discussed above along with products to help prevent and treat infestations of fleas and ticks outdoors. Cyzmic CS, insecticide in the kit, is a versatile insecticide concentrate with two active ingredients, providing both a quick initial kill and long-term residual control of adult fleas and ticks. Archer Insect Growth Regulator prohibits the development of immature stages of fleas and ticks, effectively interrupting the breeding cycle of target insects.
