Q&A Home

Paula from Houston, Texas writes,

Why does the Flea Stoppers label ask you to "avoid breathing dust"?

Due to the precautionary statement I'm very concerned about putting this on my carpet, though my pest control guy advised me to use it. I have three small children and three dogs in the home. I know it's supposed to be granulated, however there does sound like a conflict.


That is a precautionary statement on all "dust" products that the manufacturers list for safety. Flea Stoppers is safe if applied as directed on the product label. It is a granulated formulation and not a dust formulation and this product is safe to use around asthmatics, crawling babies and pets (including birds, fish, ferrets, rabbits and other small animals) as it does not pose the same inhalation risks as other products.  Children should not be in the area that was treated with Flea Stoppers until the entire application is complete.  Rake or brush it to the nape of the carpet to get it down to where it needs to be.
