How Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray Works
Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray kills Fleas and Ticks. It contains a unique combination of ingredients that kills both adult and pre-adult (larvae) fleas. Precor 2000 Plus prevents reinfestation and flea build-up for 7 months. Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray reaches fleas hidden in carpets, rugs, drapes, upholstery, pet bedding and floor cracks. It doesn’t leave bad smells, stains or sticky mess. One can covers 2,000 square feet. 16 oz.
For Fleas: Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray contains Permethrin and Phenothrin to kill adult fleas fast. It also contains Methoprene (an insect growth regulator) to prevent reinfestation for up to seven months. Methoprene penetrates deep into the base of carpet and upholstery fibers, where pre-adult fleas live and targets fleas in the egg and larval stages of development, preventing them from producing new infestations of breeding, biting adults.
While the insect growth regulator in Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray will continue to work for up to 7 months, it is recommended to re-apply Precor 2000 after 14 days if new fleas continue to emerge. This will increase knock-down of new adults. Preparations and cleaning such as vacuuming thoroughly before and after treatments will also greatly affect the success of Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray. See below for complete treatment instructions.
Precor 2000 Plus Target Pests
Active infestations of fleas and ticks and preventative treatment of flea infestations.
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH PRECOR 2000 PLUS PREMISE SPRAY: Adult fleas, hatching flea eggs, flea larvae, and ticks
Target Uses of Precor 2000 Plus Spray
Use Precor 2000 Plus to kill adult fleas, hatching flea eggs, flea larva, and ticks in residential and commercial or industrial buildings, particularly in carpeted areas, on upholstered furniture, concrete flooring, and other pet resting areas. Precor 2000 Plus provides up to 210 days of protection by preventing hatching eggs from developing into biting fleas. Precor 2000 Plus is ideal when treatment is limited to a few areas and/or the convenience of an aerosol ready-to-use product is desired.
How do I use Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray to treat for fleas?
- Identify treatment areas: especially those where pets frequent, such as in and around pet's sleeping and resting areas. These are the primary areas where fleas, their eggs, and ticks are found. (Before treatment, a test application should be made to upholstery, drapery, light-colored, delicate fabrics, or wood surfaces in an inconspicuous place.)
- Prepare treatment areas: For best results with Surface/Carpet treatments, vacuum thoroughly before spraying and discard vacuum bag in outside trash. (This product may also be used for infested surfaces inside motor vehicles.)
- Apply treatment. For flea/tick infestations, a single can treats 2000 square feet. SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING. Hold container upside down 2-3 feet from surface, point actuator towards the surface and push button. Using a sweeping motion, apply a light uniform spray to all surfaces of furniture, rugs, carpets, drapes, and around all pet resting areas. Avoid thoroughly wetting surfaces. Mist treated areas only until "slightly damp". Do not over-treat. Reapply in 14 days, if necessary. IMPORTANT: Only complete and proper application to carpets, upholstery, drapes, and other fabrics will provide thorough flea/tick elimination. Keep children and pets out of areas during treatment. Vacate room after treatment, and ventilate until surfaces are dry before reoccupying.
- For best results, eliminate fleas on pets with an approved flea product like Petcor Flea Spray or a product recommended by your veterinarian.
Always read the product label completely before use.
Each can of Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray treats 2,000 square feet. Treatment in 10 second bursts will yield 7 to 8 minutes of continuous spraying per can. Keep in mind that most flea infestations will require at least one follow up treatment.
Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray is for use in the following areas:
Inside Residential homes, garages, kennels; Commercial and Industrial Buildings including but not limited to hospitals, hotels, motels, offices, schools, supermarkets, transportation equipment (buses, boats, ships, trains, trucks), warehouses, utilities, veterinary clinics
1 x 16oz. can covers approx. 2000 sq. ft. of surface area. You should hold the can 3 feet above the carpet and no closer. If you hold it 3 feet away, the spray will be dry when it hits the carpet and you will get the proper coverage area out of the can. Treat in 10 second bursts. If you continually depress the can for longer than 10 seconds, the can will foam at the top. Also, the can is made to only work at room temperature. It will not work properly if the temps are below 70 degrees. Warm to room temp. first before using. You should get 7 to 8 minutes of continuous spraying per can.
*Cover and unplug any aquariums before spraying.
Fleas may appear for up to two weeks after treatment. This is the pupal window – when younger stages of fleas may still emerge – and the residual activity of Precor 2000 Plus should kill adults who emerge during this time. Frequent vacuuming (every day or every other day) will also help encourage immature fleas to emerge more quickly while also picking up the organic matter on which larvae feed.
*See above for complete treatment process.
Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray is not intended for outdoor use.

This stuff works!!
By Alex on April 1, 2009
I have a lot of pets and had a perpetual flea problem until I started using the Precor 2000 Plus Premise spray and now I do not see a flea at all. Used regularly, once a month in my fur-filled home, and you will not have a flea problem anymore. I have used about every other product out there and Precor is the best by far. This stuff works!

The only thing that worked for me
By Kenya on September 19, 2011
I recently discovered a flea infestation in my apartment a few weeks ago. I've never experienced a problem like this before, as we have an indoor only cat, so I had no idea what I was up against. I got my cat to the vet and on Revolution, and then looked around online trying to figure out the best way to kill the fleas in the apartment. We used bombs at first, but that didn't seem to do anything at all. There were just as many fleas. I vacuumed every inch of the apartment every day, and while that did help some, it still didn't get rid of all the fleas, and they were still jumping on me and my husband. I tried a couple of flea carpet sprays from the store, but those didn't work very well. I tried using boric acid, and that killed some of them, but it didn't kill them all, and we were still getting bit up from fleas. I even tried using one of those flea traps, but that didn't catch too many. The whole situation was a nightmare! I figured I needed something stronger and something that could really get down into the carpets, so I got back online and did some research. I had heard about Precor in the past, but ignored it, as I thought I could take care of the flea problem myself with store bought products. Defeated by everything else I had tried, I typed in Precor to see what others had to say about it on forums, and the majority of people had good results with it. Precor 2000 Plus was recommended, so I figured I'd try it. I was very skeptical at first, as I had already tried so many other things that didn't work. I ordered the Precor on a Tuesday, and it was delivered to me at work on Friday. My cat had a vet appointment that day, so I had her stay at the vet all day while I sprayed the apartment. I went home for lunch that day, and started spraying. Very very strong smelling stuff. Very "chemically". I had on a mask, though. I opened the doors and windows before I sprayed, but the fumes are still really strong while you're spraying. I got everything sprayed: carpets, floors, couch, chairs, under the bed, closets, window sills, baseboards, etc. I left all the windows open, fans blowing, and air conditioning on, so the place could air out, and then went back to work. After work and picking up my cat from the vet, I came home. The floors and everything was dry, although there was still a little of the Precor smell lingering (the rest disappeared after a little longer). I took off my shoes and walked around the carpet. Nothing. No fleas. Not one! I was still a little skeptical wondering if one would jump on my feet and ankles, but nothing did. It's been 3 days now, and still have not seen even one flea! Not even when walking around in white socks! I read somewhere that it's best to keep vacuuming everyday for 2 weeks after applying this product, to encourage any eggs to hatch into the spray residue, and I am doing that. Ah, it's so nice to be able to relax when at home, without getting bit up by fleas! This product is a God send, and I will definitely be ordering another can to have on hand!

It's the best for flea and tick control
By Sheila on June 11, 2010
I've used this product for years and it's the best. If a flea or tick rides into the house on your pet, it will die. It won't have time to lay eggs, but eggs would not live either. One can treats my entire 1300 sq ft house for 7 months on a clean carpet. What I really like is that it doesn't have an aroma that aggravates my allergies. Once the product settles down after spraying, it's odorless.

Best stuff hands down!
By Greg on March 19, 2010
I purchased this stuff mid-summer last year. My dog and cat were bringing in fleas like crazy. One treatment (2 cans) for the whole house, and not a single flea after that. I sprayed on my couch and 5 days later I lifted the cushion and dead fleas everywhere. This is well worth the price.

Precor 200 Plus Premise Spray
By Pat on October 24, 2013
I have a dog and several cats all on flea preventative. While the cats only have outdoor access to a screened lanai, the fleas are still a huge problem. This spray has been terrific! You have to remove pets from your house before spraying and while the spray dries, but it truly makes a difference for weeks.
By Jesus on October 20, 2013
Fleas are not fun. My poor dog was scratching so much. This product was the last peice of a comprehensiive regimen. I vacuumed, steam cleaned the carpets. Sprayed them all down. It was odorless and left no stains. Between this and the shampoos i used. The body spray and the ointment we observed Brownie is no longer scratching herself. We will continue to vacuum and spray the carpets. Fleas and ticks are horrible.

By Heather on September 12, 2013
My husband brought fleas home with him from work(he delivers appliances) and in a matter of a few days we were being "attacked". We do have a indoor cat and a 15 month old son in the house. I first called an exterminator and they wanted $300-$750 to come out and spray. I then called my vets because my cat was never on any flea control to begin with so I got her on flea meds and they told me to steam clean my carpets and that it will help. That helped for about a day. I really didn't want to use any chemicals because of my son. We used a few different sprayed but they did not work!! My husband looked online and found domyownpestcontrol.com and Precor 2000 we figured we would give it a shot and see if it would work....Let me tell you it works!! We used one can and they are gone!! Its been a week since we used it and we vacuum every day still and wash our bedding every 3 days still. If you have a flea problem this is what you want to use I will definitely recommend this product!

Precor 2000 initially worked just fine; however, it was not immediate. Because I developed an allergy to fleas after so many bites; I had to call in a professional. However, even with the professional, the flea nits are so stubborn that we are still having problems. If your infestation is in the earliest stages; or if you want to just make sure you are not tracking in fleas from outside, I highly recommend this product. We intend to keep it around and keep on top of this situation in the future.

By Peggy on May 20, 2013
Almost overnight we had a flea infestation. The vet said it was because of a warm, rainy winter. Just what fleas love. Initially, because one grandson has asthma, I really didn't want to spray the inside of our house. We treated the yard twice and the dog 3 times and still couldn't get a handle on the situation. After about 3 weeks of making no real progress, I ordered the Precore 2000, opened the house up for the day and got busy treating carpets, baseboards, and furniture. This product works great! The 'flea numbers' began to drop. Because we were going to be out of town for the first week-end in May, I did a last minute vacuuming and sprayed again. Praise God! We are flea free!

I had an infestation so bad I ALMOST JUST MOVED. I'm highly allergic to fleas as well. I easily had 200+ bites on me. You name it, I tried it to rid myself of these bastards. Googled and tried every remedy available... then this. WITHIN 2 DAYS OF SPRAYING I HAD ZERO FLEAS. I cried I was so happy. In addition, I also spray my lawn with that stuff you can attach to your garden hose. Life is good again. I order from epestsolutions. FREE SHIPPING !!

Precor 2000 +/-
By Robert on May 14, 2013
I have used 2000 before. It quickly and conveniently provides large area coverage of floors and other low sites. Limitations include: the inability to discharge at areas above the user and injection under appliances, low furniture, etc. Something else, with a long tube, is needed. (Obviously, an insecticide tank with various nozzles.)

Doesn't seem to work
By Lynn on April 16, 2013
No stars actually. I purchased this for ticks in the house. We sprayed everywhere once then again 2 weeks later. What convinced me it wasn't working was when I put 2 ticks in 2 separate ziplocks. One I sprayed till it was wet and the other I just misted some in the bag. Both were alive and moving even after 2 days.

August 13, 2009 Jennifer asked:
QCan cats stay in the house while I spray Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray or do they need to be removed?
Could I put them in one room and then do that room after?
AYour cats do not need to leave the house. You should do exactly as you suggested. Place the cats in another room while you are treating and wait 30 minutes for the Precor 2000 Plus Premise to dry. Once the product has dried, it is perfectly safe to allow the cats back into the room.
July 28, 2010 Mimi asked:
QHow do you treat your clothes for fleas?
Do fleas live in clothing? Our kitten would jump into our bottom drawers of our dresser. Should I wash all clothing or just open the drawers of the dresser when treating our home with Precor 2000?
AClothes should not be sprayed with any type of insecticide. All clothing that could be infested should be washed and dried. Dry Clean only clothes in most cases can simply go through the dryer for about 30 minutes. Be sure the dryer is on a setting that will reach at least 120F as this is the temperature that will kill the insects and their eggs.
September 2, 2009 Keely asked:
QWill Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray damage my real hardwood flooring?
ANo, Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray is perfectly safe on just about any surface. You should always test the spray first in a corner or inconspicuous area to be sure, but we have never had any issues. Remember to vacuum all surfaces and cracks and crevices of the hardwood floor and around baseboards first before the application. You should also vacuum often over the next week and apply again exactly 14 days later after your first application. Be sure to vacuum again before your second treatment.
March 24, 2010 Megan asked:
QI have fleas in my house. Is there a pesticide I can use to spray the carpet area in my meaving room?
APrecor 2000 Plus Premise Spray is an aerosol spray that comes ready to use, no mixing required. Precor 2000 contains 2 insecticides to kill adult fleas fast. It also contains an insect growth regulator to prevent reinfestation for up to seven months. Vacuuming is very important when treating for fleas. For best results, vacuum thoroughly before spraying and discard or empty vacuum bag in outside trash.Continue vacuuming frequently to help remove flea eggs and flea debris. Heavy infestations may require retreatment after 14 days.
August 8, 2010 Heather asked:
QIs it safe to spray Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray in a home with a baby?
AThere should be no problem using Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray in a home with a baby, as long as you follow the product label. The infant should be out of the home during the application and can return after the product is dry and the home has been vented.

Val from Akron, Oh asked:
QIs Precor 2000 Premise Spray safe in the home with birds?
Is this product safe to use if you have birds? I know it says to allow it to dry for an hour before re-entering but my parrots are free-flying and have extensive freedom in my house, so I need to make sure that the residue left on carpets and furniture is not going to be harmful to their sensitive system in any way!
A Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray should not present a safety hazard to the bird as long as it used as directed on the product label and is completely dry before contact. If your bird has any health concerns you should contact your vet before use.
September 10, 2013 Sydney asked:
QDo I need to turn off my pilot lights when using Precor 2000 Spray?
A Yes, when doing the application of Precor 2000 Plus or any other aerosol you want to turn off the pilot light. Once the application has completely dried you can re-light the pilot.

Janelle from Central, Sc asked:
QIs it normal to still have adult fleas jumping into traps after spraying Precor 2000?
Precor 2000 plus has been used throughout my apartment for 3 days now (including carpets, furniture, bedding, cushions...) and I have been vacuuming daily since - but my flea traps are still catching fleas (a few per day). I thought newly emerged fleas will die when they reach the insecticide on the carpet, is it normal that they're still able to jump into my traps? Does this mean the spray isn't working?
It is normal to still see fleas after an application of Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray. It is not a contact kill after the product has dried, it will take time for a flea to die after contacting a treated surface. You may have over irritated the fleas if you have applied for 3 days straight. Typically most flea problems can be handled in 2 treatments, but this depends on how bad the problem is. You should repeat the treatment exactly 14 days after the first treatment, or 2 weeks, since this is how often flea eggs typically hatch. It is common to have to do 3 or 4 treatments (treating every 2 weeks) over 2 months for bad problems.

Thuri from Gresham asked:
QDo I have to throw away the vac bag every time while using Precor 2000 Plus?
I have read that I should throw away the vacuum bag every time I vacuum and I'm concerned that it could get rather expensive, if I'm vacuuming every day. Is there something I can put in the bag, or could I keep my vacuum outside and turn it on immediately upon bringing it in to vacuum each day?
A It is recommended that the bag be thrown out after each vacuuming to keep the fleas from escaping if the bag stays in the vacuum. We are not aware of anything that can be added to the bag to prevent having to throw it out after each vacuuming.

Roger from Lynch Station, Va asked:
QCan Precor Spray be used in kitchen area?
Kitchen has open area sunroom to one side, dog stays there most of the day and all night Can we spray dog area without having to remove dishes, pantry items, etc. from kitchen? Do we need to turn off AC/fans.
A You can safely use Precor in the needed area as long as all food has been removed from the counter tops or you put a sheet or towel over the area. Be sure not to direct spray into the cabinets or on the counters. You should not have to turn off the A/C though we do recommend you turn off the fan during th application.

QHow do I apply Precor 2000 Plus inside a car ?
Another questions, should i apply precor 2000 to the car seats ? After applying precor 2000 can i drive the car normally , i'm afraid that sun & air entering the car due to its motion would shorten or remove the residual effect of precor 2000 as i can't vaccum my car every 2 days in the garage to make fleas get out of the cocoon and i have to take it to a car care center to do vaccuming.
A We recommend to focus on cracks and crevices,seems, folds, and floorboards. Outdoor elements should not lessent the residual of Precor 2000 Plus. Spray Precor 2000 PLus every 14 days and let dry completely before re-entering the car.

Amy from Springfield, Wv asked:
QI have a bad flea problem in my unfinished basement with concrete floors, will this work?
A Yes, Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray would work great to kill those fleas and prevent reinfestations for 7 months. Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray is labeled to be used on a wide variety of floor surfaces. You should hold the can 3 feet above the carpet and no closer. If you hold it 3 feet away, the spray will be dry when it hits the carpet and you will get the proper coverage area out of the can. Treat in 10 second bursts. If you continually depress the can for longer than 10 seconds, the can will foam at the top. Also, the can is made to only work at room temperature. It will not work properly if the temps are below 70 degrees. Warm to room temp. first before using. You should get 7 to 8 minutes of continuous spraying per can.

Charles from Charleston Sc 29403 asked:
QFlea in my bathroom tub
A If you have what appears to be fleas in your bathroom tub and they arent in other areas of your home, you are most likely not dealing with fleas. It sounds like you may have springtails which to the untrained eye can look very similar to fleas. Please get a sample of the insect on a glue board or piece of tape and take it to a local pest control company or your local Cooperative Extension office to get it properly identified. Once you know what the pest is we can recommend an accurate treatment method and product for you to use.

Thad from Clayton, Nc asked:
QShould I avoid spraying the carpet with Precor 2000 for fear of skin contact with the spray?
One of the Q/A says not to spray furniture on top so that skin contact is minimized, but what about on carpet where kids will be on the floor? It seems like there would a lot of skin contact on the carpet. Also one Q/A talks about spraying around beds but not on them. How does that kill the fleas on the bed if it's just sprayed on the floor?
The manufacturer has recently updated their product information to "Only complete and proper
application to carpets, upholstery, drapes, and other fabrics will provide thorough flea/tick
elimination. Keep people and pets out of areas during treatment. Vacate room after treatment, and ventilate until surfaces are dry before reoccupying." This new product information means that you could spray the entire piece of upholstered furniture if you wish. Having said that, eggs and pupa will not be found out in the middle of the couch cushion so we would still recommend that you concentrate your application to tufts, folds, voids and crevices as this is where the fleas would be developing. Also, you could spray your mattress if you choose but most folks find that simply vacuuming the mattress will eliminate the fleas on the mattress and that insecticide applications are unnecessary.
