Flea and tick carpet powders help to control infestations inside the home. Just sprinkle the powder on the carpet and follow the directions on the bottle. Some powders will begin working immediately, killing fleas and ticks. Others must be left on the carpet fibers for a few days before vacuuming. Most powders work by clinging to the adult fleas, eggs, and larvae, killing the insects. Always read the instructions and warnings for any flea and tick powder for carpets. Some products will only kill fleas, while others kill fleas and ticks. Some are not safe to use where they’ll come into contact with humans or pets until the carpet is vacuumed.
