Product Information

This product kills fleas and prevents flea infestations for a full season. Adult fleas may be seen in the treated areas when brought in on infested animals or when adults emerge from pupal cases; however, populations will not develop in the treated area. This product may also be used to kill bed bugs and ticks by contact and aids in preventing bed bug hatch.

In transportation equipment, certain plastics may be whitened or dulled. Apply only to carpets and cloth upholstered areas or test an inconspicuous area before treating.

NOTICE: This product has been tested on several types of carpet, fabric, and other household furnishings without adverse affects. In a few instances, waxed surfaces have been whitened or dulled. Holding the can 36 inches away from the target surface normally prevents any whitening from occurring. Because of the wide variety of floor types and finishes, treat a small inconspicuous area before treating the entire area. Avoid contact with antique finishes.

Application Instructions

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE! Use at the rate of 20 ounces [one can] for up to 2,625 square feet (10 ounces [half can] for up to 1,300 square feet), applying in a sweeping motion at a speed of 1 foot per second. DO NOT apply more than 20 ounces per 2,625 square feet.


Treat infested areas or potentially infested areas, including rugs, carpets, upholstered furniture, pet beds, pet resting areas, room edges, and around and under furniture or other stored items. Hold can at arm’s length and direct spray toward the area to be treated. Use a sweeping motion to apply product and back away from treated area while holding the can 36 inches away from the surface being treated. An area of 80 to 100 square feet can be treated in approximately 10 seconds with this product. When treating upholstered furniture, treat under cushions and areas where flea development occurs.

Bed Bugs

Kills bed bugs. Apply where bed bugs harbor or are suspected of traveling. Treat areas such as wall junctions and floors, beneath floor coverings and carpets, closets, shelves, curtains, furniture (behind, under, and/or inside furniture, including upholstered furniture), headboards, picture frames, and box springs. Allow surfaces to dry before reoccupying treated area. When treating furniture (i.e. sofas and chairs), DO NOT apply to flat surfaces where prolonged human contact will occur. When treating mattresses, remove linens before application. Apply to edges, tufts, folds, sides, and seams. DO NOT apply directly to bed linens or other bed surfaces that come in direct, prolonged contact with occupants of the bed. Allow mattresses to dry before bed is re-made and used. When treating luggage, apply only to empty luggage. Direct product into luggage pockets, seams, folds, and around wheels. Areas of rooms where luggage is stored may also be treated. Check for potential staining issues before treating by testing a small, inconspicuous area of the item to be treated. Reapply as necessary but not more than once a day.


Apply to infested nonporous areas and egg laying sites or other nonporous areas where ticks are suspected.
