does FLEA STOPPERS kill fleas?
FLEA STOPPERS works by dehydrating and
kills fleas in two stages of the life
cycle. Flea larvae, which hatch from
the eggs, ingest the material and because
it is a dessicant, it causes them to
become constipated because there is
not enough moisture to move their bowels.
Consequently, they are poisoned by their
own wastes and die, never developing
into an adult flea. The adult flea is
also killed by the dehydrating action
of the granules. Fleas are like fish
in that they are primitive and have
no central lung system. (If fish had
lungs they would drown.) Just as a fish
breathes by taking water across the
gill membrane to extract oxygen from
fleas extract oxygen from moisture
taken in through tiny holes along the
side of the body called spiracles. The
granules abrades and breaks down the
exoskeleton, preventing the flea from
maintaining moisture and hence oxygen.
The resulting dehydration and asphyxiation
kills the adult flea in 3-5 days. Our
product works because no living being
can live without water!
is FLEA STOPPERS made of?
Our product is a highly purified orthoboric
acid that is odorless, crystalline and
white in appearance. The consistency
is a little finer than salt or sugar.
Boron is a naturally occurring element
in the earth’s crust and is mined in
the western deserts of the U.S. Boric
acid has been used for centuries as
an eye and wound antiseptic as well
as a whitening agent for teeth!
How is FLEA STOPPERS
The product is available in two sizes,
one of which treats 1,000 S.F. and the
other 2,000 S.F. Both sizes come in
a canister with instructions and our
toll free number for questions or help.
The canisters come with a shaker top
for ease of application. Simply shake
the material into carpeted areas of
the home and use a broom or carpet rake
to work the material into the nap of
the carpet. We recommend that you vacuum
the carpets well prior to application
and throw the bag away afterwards as
fleas can continue to hatch in the bags.
FLEA STOPPERS stands behind its product.
If you still have fleas in your home
after a period of 6 weeks, you may present
a receipt of sale and we will refund
your money or replace your product at
no charge. Unlike some companies selling
dusty polyborate products, we will honor
this guarantee even after you clean
your carpet, regardless of cleaning
method. Obviously, we do not have “carpet
police” and therefore cannot dictate
that you use the product according to
the directions. However, after almost
15 years of registering purchases, we
have maintained a consistent ½ of 1%
failure rate based on refund or replacement
requests and we feel very comfortable
covering our “Do It Yourself” products.
STOPPERS is federally licensed by
the E.P.A. in 48 states as
well as being registered by the pesticide
regulation departments in each state
in which our product is sold.
We unconditionally guarantee our product
for refund or replacement. After tracking
sales for over 8 years during which
time we took warranty information
via the phone where we asked each
customer to register their purchase.
FLEA STOPPERS has less than a ½ of
1% failure rate based on requests

and there are fleas in my home. Is it
safe for me to use FLEA STOPPERS?
Yes. FLEA STOPPERS is not absorbed through intact skin.
Unlike other borate products, which are dusty, our product is
non-inhalable due to its granular consistency. Furthermore, FLEA STOPPERS
has an oral toxicity level close to everyday table salt.
I have asthma,
allergies and/or extreme chemical sensitivity.
Can I use FLEA STOPPERS in my home without
problems from the application?
Yes. FLEA STOPPERS is a desiccant that works physically
by dehydrating rather than chemically by poisoning. You could compare it
to pouring salt on a slug.
Can FLEA STOPPERS
be safely used in homes with birds,
fish, ferrets, rabbits or other small
animals? May I use the product without
removing pets from my home?
Yes. Unlike some of the other dusty boron-based flea
products on the market, FLEA STOPPERS is granular and presents no problem
to smaller animals due to inhalation. I have a pair of Yellow Nape Amazon
parrots and have been using this product for 15 years with them walking
around on the floor as I treated. Fish tanks do not need to be covered
either. Because of the granular nature of the product, it does not coat
the hair or paws of smaller animals, limiting the ingestion from
I have toddlers
and/or a newborn who stay on the carpet.
Can I use your product without hurting
Yes. FLEA STOPPERS is not absorbed through the skin and
will not hurt your children or pets from contact exposure.
Can I apply
your product on hardwood, tile or linoleum
No. The material is very slippery due its granular
nature and chemistry of the material and could be dangerous when used in
this situation. These surfaces do not lend themselves to holding the
material like carpet would and we would not be able to warrant it for a
year in this situation.
What can I
do if I have hardwoods or other non-carpet
Treat your pet with a two moth residual program and
practice rigorous hygiene. By this I mean sweep and mop those areas daily
if possible because fleas are immobile during three phases of their life
cycle. Every egg larva and pupa that you pick up by this method will be
one less flea to bite you or your pet and this may enable you to avoid the
use of pesticides. However, if your infestation is extensive, you may opt
to use a spray or bombs to give you some immediate relief. You may also
use FLEA STOPPERS on your upholstery and carpet remnants placed in
strategic areas throughout your home.
I have bombed
my house numerous times and cannot get
rid of the fleas. Why is this?
Bombs, or fumigation devices, are known in the pest
control business as “flushers”. This means that they kill insects upon
contact, but have no residual (long lasting) effects. Consequently,
bombing and spraying a non-professional product will only kill fleas that
are there that day, so it must be done weekly to control the emerging
pupae. Another factor that reduces the effectiveness of bombs and sprays
is the widespread use of stain resistant carpets. These carpets are
moisture repellant, which means that the fogged material cannot penetrate
the nap of the carpet where the fleas tend to live and breed.
My pet sleeps
on my bed and furniture frequently.
What should I do to treat those areas?
FLEA STOPPERS can and should be applied to both areas.
Furniture should be treated by lifting cushions off sofas and chairs and
sprinkling the material lightly on the ticking where the cushions sit as
well as in the wells of furniture (the crevices where the body of the
furniture meets the back and sides) as fleas tend to frequent these areas.
Beds should be treated by lifting the mattress and lightly sprinkling the
material between the box springs and the mattress. The material should not
be applied directly to the tops of the cushions, beds or animal bedding
because its’ granular nature makes it irritating (it would be like sliding
your body across sand) and its’ dehydrating effect would make it doubly
irritating. You may also want to apply it under pet bedding in a similar
Can FLEA STOPPERS
be applied to my pet?
No. It would not stay on the pet. Because it will not
kill the fleas on your pet, it is very important that you treat your
animal with an approved flea control product. Otherwise, your pet will
continue to bring fleas into your home and recycle them.
Can I use FLEA
STOPPERS in the yard?
Not unless you hate cutting grass and other greenery.
FLEA STOPPERS is a dehydrating agent and will kill plants due to this
effect-it is an herbicide. There are several other easily obtainable
products that can be used in the yard to kill fleas. You may use a
granular pesticide such as diazinon or bifenthrin, which requires nothing
more than a glove and a bucket or you may broadcast spread it with a
fertilizer spreader. We recommend granules for customer use because it
eliminates the need for special spraying equipment and the hazards posed
by mixing and disposal of rinsate as well as giving a better residual
control than sprays which tend to break down more quickly with exposure to
rain and ultraviolet light.
If you are concerned about using pesticides you have
several options for control. One of these is the use of nematodes that
deed on fleas in the initial stages of their life cycle and do no damage
to plants or other animals. The nematodes are packaged and applied with a
sprayer and garden hose; hoever, they may not be alive in the packaging
and do not do well in areas where temperatures are above 90-100 degrees
for any length of time, which of course tends to be where we have the
biggest flea problems! Diatomaceous earth is a mix of ocean-mined
materials (primarily the interlocking skeletons of algae colonies called
diatoms that consist of abrasive silica) that breaks down insect
exoskeletons leading to dehydration in a fashion similar to FLEA STOPPERS.
A third organic method for insect control is planting marigolds, mums,
burdock and pennyroyal as they are all natural pyrethrin-bearing plants
(pyrethrin is one of the most common ingredients found in bombs and
sprays) and will actually kill and repel many types of insects as well as
sprucing up the appearance of your yard!
What is the
biology of a flea?
The flea life cycle is comparable to a butterfly’s. A
female flea lays 30-50 eggs per day, which hatch in 3-5 days. The larva
that hatches from the eggs is the equivalent of the caterpillar, which
looks like a tiny, hairy fly maggot. For roughly 7-10 days, the larvae
crawl around in carpet and upholstery to feed on organic material and
store energy for the next phase of the life cycle. Like a caterpillar, the
larva spins a cocoon around itself and is than called a pupa. Under ideal
conditions, the fleas are in the pupal stage for 10-14 days; however, they
can lie dormant for up to a year if there is not moisture, movement and
warmth. While pupating, they cannot be killed, whether you use FLEA
STOPPERS or chemical sprays, because the cocoon is like a tiny
self-contained womb for the metamorphosing insects. Upon emergence from
the pupa, the adult flea will live for approximately 21 days, sucking your
and your pet’s blood and generally making life miserable! If you add the
amount of time in each stage of the life cycle, you will see that it may
take 50 days to rid your home of fleas from egg to adult death without
