Kill Flea Infestations with Fleabusters Rx for Fleas flea control.

The ProductBorax Flea Control Product

The Fleabusters Rx for Fleas process uses a patented powder process, Rx for Fleas Plus, to eliminate the fleas from your home. The Fleabusters powder is registered with both the Federal Environmental Protection Agency and State Agencies.

The Process

The powder is applied to all areas of your home (carpets, cracks and crevices) by a licensed service technician who will ensure a quality application. Depending on the size of your home, a professional application usually takes between one and two hours to complete.  Self applications with a push broom could take longer.

How it Works

It acts as a desiccant when any of the microscopic particles of the negatively
charged powder come in contact with the larvae, the pupa or the egg. After
2-6 weeks the home is completely free of fleas. Even as pets go outside and
bring in new fleas the home will stay protected because the Rx for Fleas
Plus powder remains in the carpets and hardwood crevices.





Environmentally-conscious pet owners choose Rx for Fleas® ...
And Here's Why!  


Rx for Fleas powder is a unique alternative to liquid pesticides and foggers. Our powder cannot fail as it kills the fleas physically rather than chemically, thus fleas cannot build up an immunity to our product.

           Why Use Rx for Fleas over flea spray, flea bombs/foggers, and other methods?


Philosophy of Flea Control

Effective control requires eradication of fleas from the pet, home, yard, and control of
the flea life cycle. Removal of fleas from the pet alone is futile; immature fleas (eggs,
larvae, pupae) develop off the pet and new adults simply jump on, causing
subsequent reinfestation. New and safe products are available that can be used as
part of a reduced chemical control program. There are also ways of making the
environment less suitable for flea development, which is the premise behind Rx for
Fleas - the carpets in your home are rendered uninhabitable to fleas.

Traditional Alternatives to Fleabusters

Issues to consider before using aerosol pesticide bombs for pest control

needs.

We speak to people every week who tell us they have bombed their homes for fleas,
to no avail.  I did once have an individual tell me they enjoyed great success using
flea bombs, telling me the bombs worked great and that they "used them all the time."

I couldn't help but chuckle as I explained that if they were, indeed,
using flea bombs with regularity that it might be taken as a sign that the bombs
were not actually working much beyond killing the immediate adult fleas.

That's the beauty with Fleabusters.  One treatment does the trick and keeps on
working to keep them away.

But for fantasy sake, let's say there were an aerosol bomb on the market that would
penetrate all 4 stages of the flea life cycle and get rid of your fleas.  Would the use
of such a method be worthwhile?  Many people get so frustrated with fleas before
they find Fleabusters that they become willing to try anything, regardless of the
consequences.

I have never been a big fan of any kind of pesticide bomb inside the home, if only
because of the contamination of everything inside the home that takes place -
clothes, bedding, pillows, furniture, toys, dishes...you name it and an aerosol will
contaminate it.  Now think about how often children and pets will be putting their
hands, mouth and feet in contact with those items.  Pretty scary, isn't it?

This is where Fleabusters takes a huge lead over any of the competition.  Our
product doesn't work chemically, and is actually less toxic than table salt.  It works by
desication, or physically drying up the flea life cycle.  The Borate-based active
ingredient also has a neutral p.h.of 7.0, making it even safer than regular Boric Acid,
with much smaller particles.  

Most Boric Acids you would buy at the hardware store will be about the texture of
laundry detergent.  That's almost too big, and will be visible in your carpets - not
very desirable and less effective.  The smaller particles spread more evenly and
give much faster control.  Statically charged particles allow the powder to adhere to
carpet fibers, enabling the product to resist vacuuming to stay in the carpet and
continue working to prevent new infestations.

 Liquid Pesticide Broadcast Spray Applications to Carpeting

In order for a broadcast spray to be effective against fleas, virtually the entire
surface of the carpeting needs to be sprayed.  Aside from the obvious contamination
of the carpeting that takes place, there is also residual contamination of the rest of
the home.  Today's spray pesticides are almost all water-based, which of course
means that they evaporate.  That's not quite as much of an issue outside in the yard
where wind currents, rain, and UV light will not allow for very long-term residuals, but
what happens to the pesticide residue in your home that goes airborne with the water that
evaporates?  You guessed it.  Same thing that happens with the pesticide in aerosol
bombs - it winds up all over everything, which will always be a concern where
children and pets are concerned, not to mention your own health.

Flea Biology and Life Cycle


Identification

There are over 2,000 described species of fleas in the world. The most common
domestic flea is the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis felis). The dog flea
(Ctenocephalides canis) appears similar to the cat flea, but is rare in the United
States. The sticktight flea (Echidnophaga gallinacea) can become a problem if pets
frequent areas associated with poultry.

Eggs are oval, and smooth.  They are tiny (0.5mm), but visible to the naked eye.
Their white color may prevent them from being seen on lightly-colored fabric.

Small wormlike larvae (1.5-5 mm in length) hatch from the eggs. They are also visible
to the naked eye. They are eyeless, legless and sparsely covered with hairs. The
larval body is translucent white with a dark-colored gut that can be seen through the
skin.

These immature fleas will eventually spin silken, watertight cocoons in which they
will develop (pupate) into adult fleas. Cocoons are sticky, attracting dirt and debris.
This camouflage may prevent them from being seen.

Adults are about 1-3 mm in length, reddish-brown to black, wingless, and laterally
compressed.  Their powerful hindlegs are well adapted for jumping and running
through hair and feathers.


 Life Cycle & Biology
Fleas Biology
Cat flea adults, unlike many other fleas, remain on their host. Females require a fresh blood meal in order to produce eggs. They can lay up to 1 per hour! The
smooth eggs easily fall from the pet onto the carpet, bedding, or lawn. Eggs hatch within 2 days, and the developing larvae feed on dandruff, food particles, and skin flakes found on the floor around them. Adult flea fecal matter consists of relatively undigested blood. This dried blood also falls from the pet and serves as food for the newly hatched larvae.

Fleas prefer to develop in areas protected from rainfall, irrigation, and sunlight, where the relative humidity is at least 75% and the temperature is 70-90ºC. This stage lasts 5-15 days.

Larvae spin silken cocoons within carpet fibers, floor crevices, or protected outdoor
areas in which they will develop (pupate) into adult fleas. The cocoons are sticky and
easily camouflaged by local debris. Under optimal conditions, new adults are ready to
emerge within 2 weeks. They develop faster at higher temperatures, but can remain
in their cocoons up to 12 months. Vibrations and/or increase in carbon dioxide
stimulate adults to emerge.  The watertight cocoon is the state of the fleas life cycle that
allows flea infestations to survive applications of traditional insecticides.  It also the reason
traditional pest control services only offer 30-90 day guarantees for flea control. 
Pest control companies know the remaining fleas might not hatch from their cocoons
for several months.


Adult fleas are the only growth stage that actually lives on the pet and feeds on fresh
blood. They live 4-25 days.

In ideal environments, a flea egg can mature into an adult flea within 12 days, though the
typical time period is longer. 

 Problems Associated With Fleas

The cat flea is capable of transmitting plague and murine typhus to humans, but
reports are rare; its primary importance is its nuisance to humans and pets. Fleas
are not picky about their meals; any warm-blooded animal will do. Bites usually cause
minor itching, but may be more irritating to those with sensitive skin. Some people
and pets suffer from flea allergy dermatitis, lasting up to 5 days and characterized by
intense itching, reddening at the bite site, hair loss, and secondary infection. Cat
fleas also serve as intermediate hosts of dog tapeworms (Dipylidium caninum).
These intestinal parasites are transmitted to the pet while grooming via ingestion of
an adult flea carrying a tapeworm cyst. Fleas are infected by ingestion of cysts
during their larval stage. The parasite segments resemble small pieces of rice and
may be discovered around the anal region of your pet.

Detection and Monitoring

Detection is as simple as seeing fleas on your pet, noticing your pet scratching, or
flea bites around your ankles. Perhaps there are small black pieces of dirt covering
your pet’s bedding, or perhaps you’ve noticed tapeworm segments near or on your
pet. The black dirt is the adult flea feces left behind to serve as food for larvae, and
tapeworms are acquired by the animal’s ingestion of fleas. Another tale tail sign is
the appearance of pearly-white eggs on flat surfaces occupied by the pet. Eggs
become particularly apparent when contrasted on dark-colored surfaces. Soft, liquid-
filled flea eggs can be easily distinguished from sand grains by simply pressing them.

Monitoring is more difficult than simple detection. Fleas reproduce rapidly (one
female can produce up to one egg per hour throughout her 4-week adult life), so if
you spot one flea there are probably more. Shuffling around your home in white
socks looking for fleas jumping onto the socks can help monitor hot spots for flea
infestations, though not turning up any fleas after doing so doesn't mean much.  
Odds are, if you indoor animal has a number of fleas, then your home most likely has
a flea infestation.
