We have a mild flea infestation. I have been putting borax laundry booster & baking soda in the carpet and vacuuming daily. the problem is getting better but I see about one flea a day & would like to be done with it. Went to my vet's office and saw this powder. the gal working at the office said she used it and it worked great. Another, client walked by and said it was the best and worked for her too! I decided to buy the 3lb container. I vacuumed 1/2 the carpet in my kids room, applied the powder with a small push broom. wore a hospital mask over my nose and mouth. directions just said to wear a mask and did not specify what type. Noticed during the brushing part my eyes started to burn. Finished 1/2 of the room, then I removed all my clothing and put in the laundry, wiped my shoes down with a cloth and water. Washed my face and hands twice. concerned about eyes burning I started to do research on the internet. Found all the reviews here. sounds like it works but the dust concerns me as I will want to move my kids back to their bedroom but I don't want them breathing this stuff or playing on the their rug only to get the fine dust on their hands and toys. I'm buying a respirator & goggles tomorrow so that when I vacuum I won't be exposed (will wear gloves too) & I will wipe walls and other things down so that my family has minimal exposure. Not sure I want to finish the room or put it in the toy room. very misleading website too. Directions on the package are not very clear and I am quite concerned about adverse health effects. We have been calling our local Flea Busters in Washington State to get quotes but no one calls back. After reading some reviews about this company I don't think I want to have them apply this at my house. If they cannot call back for someone looking for their business I can certainly see that they would not call back if there was a problem. Cannot say either way whether this works but I can say one should use caution and don't assume that their product is as "natural" and as "safe" as they claim. Get a respirator and goggles and where when applying and any time you vacuum until you know it is out of the room. We are already in a state of chaos and now I feel like we just added a little bit more with this product.
I did not feel any different with all day energy greens. It did not have the best taste either, it tastes better mixed with juice.
