We recommend that, once applied, no vacuuming of the treated areas takes place for upto two weeks. This will allow the product to catch as much of the cycle of the infestation as possible. However, this product does not penetrate flea eggs. These can lie dormant for months until the right atmospheric conditions are prevalent, at which time they will hatch. The product dries to a very fine powder which remains in the carpet pile and kills insects which come into contact with it. However, once the carpet is vacuumed the active insecticide is removed so will obviously not be effective at any subsequent infestations. Therefore in heavy infestation problems a second treatment may be required.
Please note that one of the reviews states that they purchased this product to use for an infestation of Bed Bugs but they could not use the product as it is advised that it should not be used on bedding/mattresses etc. Bed Bugs do not actually live in bedding/mattresses! They live in the cracks and crevices of the property and are attracted to the beds through the night by the body heat of the occupants on which they feed. As such, it is cracks and crevices in the flooring, skirtings, bed frames etc, as well as under the edges of carpets which need to be treated.
