If you would compare your product to Diatomaceous Earth- what is the difference?

I've seen where you said you can leave your product in the carpets for a few months. If so what about the pets being on the carpet while it's on there? So I also read about the other product I mentioned, yes I know it's powder, all of yours is spray. What about stuff to put on the animals, and the furniture & stuff?


The Indoor Flea Kit contains Ultracide which is an aerosol spray that can be applied to carpets, upholstered furniture and the pets resting areas. You should vacuum immediately before applying the Ultracide and every other day for the next 14 days for the best results. The kit also contains Flea Stoppers which is a granulated boric acid product that will fall to the bottom of the nap of carpets where fleas are most likely to develop. Developing flea larvae will actually feed on organic matter that has now been coated with Flea Stoppers. Since Flea Stoppers falls to the bottom of the carpet nap, it will not be vacuumed up like a dust product such as Diatomaceous Earth. Your pets will need to be treated with a product that is labeled for use on pets such as Petcor or a product that you get from your veterinarian.
