How does Flea Destroyer complement other common flea-control products?
Unlike flea-control products that take effect when a flea bites, Flea Destroyer kills before fleas grow up to become biting adults. It also eliminates developing generations of fleas introduced by feral animals that are beyond the reach of treatments developed for pets and homes.
How does Flea Destroyer work, and what makes it effective?
One application of Flea Destroyer contains 10 million microscopic, beneficial nematodes (Steinernema feltiae and Steinernema carpocapsae) that naturally live in soil, bark and ground litter. The nematodes travel through the soil, penetrate the flea larvae that develop there, and release bacteria that kill the larvae. They reproduce inside of the flea larvae, increasing their population by 1000x with every flea killed, meaning that Flea Destroyer only needs to be applied once a year. By ending the flea life cycle before fleas can migrate to pets and homes, Flea Destroyer helps effectively end recurring flea problems naturally, without chemical pesticides.
How easy is it to apply?
Applying Flea Destroyer is very easy. Directions on the container describe how to add the vermiculite to a cloth bag (included) and soak the contents in 2-3 gallons of water for about an hour. Then, use a watering can, hose-end sprayer, pump or tank sprayer to apply the product to lawns, flowerbeds and other yard areas.
How long does it last?
Depending on the time of year, one application of Flea Destroyer provides protection for one year over 2,000 square feet. For severe infestations, we recommend concentrating the application over a smaller area (500-1,000 square feet). We recommend applying Flea Destroyer at the beginning of your region’s temperate season – either in early spring (after the ground has thawed), or in more temperate zones, in early fall (after periods of extreme heat).
