Flea Control Products
After killing off the neighborhood rodents, many folks are experiencing flea problems. PT Ultracide Pressurized Flea Insecticide is a ready-to-spray odorless product for indoor treatment that will address all four stages of the flea. Permethrin, which kills the larval and adult stages for thirty days, is coupled with an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that prevents the eggs from hatching. The twenty-ounce can covers about 2,000 square feet. Ultracide delivers a fine mist that dries quickly. It is water based and can be applied to hardwood floors, tile, and carpets. Keep children and pets out of area until dry.
For outside treatment, 38+ Insecticide is a 38% Permethrin that kills a long list of outdoor pests. Apply in the late evening using a hose end sprayer to soak the chemical into the soil for lasting affect (until the next rain). Application rate is one tablespoon per gallon for every 1,000 square feet. Kills the larval and adult stages but not the egg or pupa so repeat in 10-14 days. People and pets need to be out of the treated area until the next morning when the sun dries everything.
