VERY HELPFUL FOR CONTROL OF ADULT FLEA POPULATIONS
I was recommended this by a friend for fleas on my dog. I love this product. After trying Frontline Plus (a lemon), this has been great. This only stops adult fleas so you may need to keep applying once a week for some time but at least it does one phase of the flea life cycle(Frontline Plus was not effective at controlling any stage of the flea life cycle in my experience). I also use this in combination with a flea comb, but in the first 2 weeks of using this the fleas went from combing 5 to 10 on average a day to only 2 in the whole fortnigh...t!! The fodder shop recommended I only top it up every week but I have topped up at first twice a week and shaken it over the dog's bedding (and my bedding where he sleeps on my bed). It seems fairly natural. Maybe if your flea infestation is worth you could use a more chemical based flea powder but this has been great for me. I realise more flea eggs will hatch most likely as it only controls adults, but I am happy to keep using the powder, so that adults will immediately jump off the dog. This is incredibly effective so far. Very satisfied!

Questions & Answers
Please be very careful with this product - I have used it but never again - look up the ingredient rotenone which is banned in USA and United Kingdom since 2009 - can cause long term problems and may also be linked to Parkinsons Disease. You think it is safe because it is derived from seeds and roots!
