It Stinks, Literally

OMG, I hope that I did not ruin my house with this awful product. I only used a very little bit in one room. I closed the room doors for two hours (the label says a least one hour) and when I returned, the smell was so strong and horrible that it gagged me and it made my eyes water.
I have been airing out my house for three hours and the smell is still lingering, as if I was in the foulest locker room nightmare imaginable. I would only recommend this spray to my worst enemy.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The trigger broke right off the bat >:( Replaced it w/ a different one I had, smells simply awful, but it did the job & I like the piece of mind that it will continue to do its job for weeks to come.

This product works immediately to get the fleas out of a room, but I cannot tell if it is diverting them or actually killing them. However, my husband sprays down a room and we don't see fleas for hours.
Works well along with other products because fleas have many stages of life, so other things must be done to eliminate fleas fully, such as bleaching hard surfaces for eggs and larvae, vacuuming for pupae stage and treating animals with flea killer to eliminate possible hosts!! Hope this helps others!
I would recommend this to a friend!

My dog had fleas. She spread those fleas all over my room and now my room has fleas. I bought this product and sprayed my room with it (removing all clothing, bedding, etc. first, to be washed), and now more than 12 hours later my room STILL stinks of insecticides and it STILL has fleas. Clearly this product does not work as advertised.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I used this to help rid my house of fleas post treating my cats with Frontline and bombing the house with a fogger. Needless to sey we still have fleas...even when sprayed directly on a flea it had little to no effect on killing them even hours later.

Despite less than stellar performances from other Hartz flea products, I can say that this has done its job. I used it on a large rug in the bedroom. After a few sprays in conjunction with daily vacuuming I'm fairly certain I've managed to kill them off. I also used it on an upholstered chair, which also worked.
I would recommend this to a friend!
