Sentry Natural Defense Flea Carpet Powder Review
If your dog or cat has recently suffered from fleas and the little pests have now moved off of your pet and set up shop in your home, you are probably trying to figure out how to get them out of your carpet and life completely.
Fleas can bother humans just as much as pets, and if you have them in your carpet and rugs, you are probably realizing just how hard they are to get rid of completely.
One solution is Sentry Natural Defense Flea and Tick Carpet Powder. This powder claims to kill fleas on contact, and that one bottle can treat an area up to 1,000 square feet, roughly three to five rooms in any average size home. It is also advertised as safe for children, pets and easy to use in a resealable container.Pros:
The powder smells great and will works not only of the fleas, but also any ants, cockroaches, silverfish, spiders, or ticks.
The formula has been tested and approved by veterinarians and will protect long-term.
This product is safer to use than traditional flea bombs or foggers and is not based on heavy chemicals or pesticides, meaning that you could use this product every time you vacuum with no adverse results to your health or the health of your family or pets.
While the instructions say, “Apply powder liberally over entire surface,” at $18.99 per canister you probably want to be more conservative than that. They advertise up to 1,000 square feet, but if you apply liberally you’ll only get more like 500 square feet out of it.
We’ve gotten feedback from one user that the canister may not be ideal for spreading the powder around and that you have to be really careful when shaking or you could create a cloud (see comment below).
All in all, Sentry’s Natural Defense Flea Carpet Powder is a natural and friendly smelling way to keep your carpeted rooms flea free. While it can get expensive if used regularly, it may be worth paying the extra cost to stay chemical free.
