don't buy harmful flea powders or drops that only last up to 2 weeks any more! if you dog or cat is infested with fleas pour jhonsons baby powder on their coat and comb through fur, really good. you may need to repeat in some cases. start from head then work you way down to tail, DO NOT POUR ON DOGS FACE !!!!!!. if you start from the backside  first they will rush to the head making it more difficult to kill them. for carpet, first start to pour on the outside rim of the carpet traping the fleas then quickly start covering the rest of the carpet. let set for about 10 minutes then vacumme. TIP: when putting it on the carpet pour closely to the carpet so it dosent poof in the air.   ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS? JUST ASK.  for beds  do the same as the carpet then use the attatchment shown below on your vacume to remove the powder.

Roach kill aka boric acid (not to be confused with boarx) is the only thing I found that works. Pour on carpet along edges of highest traffic areas. Vacuum up 1 day later. Reapply to same area, vacuum up 2 to 3 weeks later and you'll be rid of flees.

What's the active ingredient/reason it's effective? Is it just repellant to fleas? or does it dehydrate them like using salt or that special dirt/soil stuff? I use gold bond powder on my dogs when they're itch crazy, as per my vets advice..I wonder if it's got the same effect as the baby powder?
Hmmm.. HATE THESE BUGGERS! Another night of jumping at every tickle 'till I have something to get them out of the house tomorrow. :(

what if the cat has sores from scratching? is the baby powder still safe?
pianolover10124353 (author)  KryssErin1 year ago
well I wouldn't recommend it. but for sores, you should use a cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide to disinfect it, then when its healed you can you the baby powder:)
Can you do the same with pillows? thnks
yes, but make sure you use the vacume attatchment to suck up the excess powder so your not breathing it up your nose. a more affective way would be to put a unused green tea bag in your pillowcase. this will repel the fleas from going near your face at night.
