Roslyn from Forest Grove, Or writes,

Does Ultracide work on thick carpet?

I have really thick, almost shag carpet. Will Ultracide be able to help with my flea problem?


Ultracide will work on any surface.  However, the most important part to any flea treatment is vacuuming.  Vacuuming does a couple things, but the most important of which is the suction helps bring eggs and hatched fleas to the surface of the carpet so it is more likely that they come in contact with the Ultracide.  When treating fleas, you should vacuum first, then treat.  Next, you should vacuum after you treat over the next few days, every day.  Vacuuming also stimulates the eggs to hatch.  Exactly 14 days after the first treatment, you should vacuum and treat again.  This method will usually take care of most flea issues.
