Bought this product because it claims it's safe for pets and children. Sprinkled a moderate amount onto our carpet and area rugs - but the SMELL is HORRIBLE. We were planning to leave the powder in the carpet for 24 hours - as suggested by the manufacturer but after a couple of hours I couldn't take it anymore. The smell is NAUSEATING and my eyes were very irritated. We vacuumed the entire room after a couple of hours. The smell is still VERY strong and it's been a day already. Horrible horrible product. I would never buy this product again.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have tried this product in the past, and was able to treat my whole house just fine. It is not a cheap product but it is the only one i could use without removing all my animals from the house. However, this time there is hardly enough to do two small bedroom! on their website they claim there is enough to treat 2,000 sq ft.... this is not true at all. im pretty disappointed in this product, not sure if it even works. And the smell is very awful!

Smells horrible and does not work

Foremost I don't believe this powder kills anything. Much worse than that the horrific smell this product emits is overwhelming. After applying per the instructions to furniture and an area rug I had to leave the house immediately. Even days later with the windows open and fans running I still couldn't be in the room for more than a few minutes at a time. After a week I paid to have the furniture and area rug professionally cleaned. It's now been two weeks since application and I still cannot sit on my couch for more than 30 minutes without having to leave the room. Horrible, horrible, horrible product.

Smells but does not kill

So I tested this product by putting a live tic on a tissue paper and pouring the Sentry powder all over it and then folded up the tissue. After an hour I opened up the tissue and out ran the tic covered in powder but completely unharmed. Now my house smells like cloves and cinnamon and I'm sure the tics don't care.

I love this stuff! It works great! However, it does have a very strong smell. But that's what you get when you have powder and essential oils! I would suggest keeping the powder down for a few hours though. I usually leave it for 24 hours. I also use it again after 2 weeks, since it doesn't kill flea eggs. I have found that is the best way to use this product.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Overwhelming smell

Smelling this in the store wasn't too bad. Sprinkling it lightly in my bedroom was completely overwhelming. I couldn't sleep in this room for 2 weeks and at 4 weeks later I still sleep with all the windows open. It didn't work very well either, I ended up treating the room with Fleabusters with much better success and it has NO smell...just dust.

I have used this product for awhile now and I like it for a couple of reasons. I don't think chemicals are good for people or pets & when there is a good alternative I don't know why anyone would not choose the safer product. This smells so fresh and nice that even after I have emptied the vacuum it freshens the air when I vacuum again. It's not overpowering. I use a very small amount and am pleased with it.
