How do you apply Drione Dust for a flea infestation in my home?

Answer:

Drione dust alone will not be able to get rid of your flea infestation because it is not labeled to be used in many key areas. According to the Drione product label," Apply a continuous visible film underneath and behind stairs, refrigerators and appliances. Treat on, around and behind moldings, shelving, baseboards, pipe openings, cracks, crevices, and other areas where insects hide. For severe infestations, apply Drione behind cabinets and walls, in crawl spaces and attics at the rate of 16 ounces per 1000 square feet of surface area." For complete flea control, you should use products that are labeled to be used over carpets, rugs and on animal resting areas. We recommend using Ultracide in combination with Flea Stoppers for an effective flea treatment. We have put these products together in an Indoor Flea Kit for your convenience. We also carry an Outdoor/Indoor kit that will treat the fleas inside and outside. Be sure to vacuum immediately before applying the products and every day for the next two weeks to help stimulate the fleas so they will come into contact with the products that you have applied. A second treatment should be applied 14 days after the first treatment
