Can Flea Stoppers be used in a vacuum?

I have hardwood floors and can not just put a powder on the floor....my cat and daughter would get to it...or at least the cat would.


What exactly do you mean can it be used in a vacuum?  Flea Stoppers is meant to be used on carpet only and will not be effective on hardwoods.  I would recommend one of our aerosol products for fleas on the hardwoods such as Ultracide.  It can be applied on hardwoods and on carpets, and it is very safe to use around pets.  It is very important to vacuum first and then apply the product while the pets are in another room or outside.  Once the product is dry, which usually only takes about 20 minutes, it is safe to allow the pets back into the room.
