What is Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment?

Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment is an all-natural, safe, and environmentally friendly flea treatment for your home. You can safely apply Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment to carpets, cushions, furniture and any place your pet frequents - like his or her bed. Unlike many other whole house flea treatments, Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment is all-natural and contains no harmful chemicals, so you can feel comfortable applying it where you, your family, and your pets spend the most time. And there's an added bonus - it's made from environmentally-friendly boric acid, so you can feel good knowing your flea treatment is green!

Please Note: We cannot ship this product to California.

For:

Your Home.

Benefits:
  • Kills flea larvae in your home, including carpets, cushions, upholstery, and your pet's favorite places, preventing maturation and reproduction
  • Natural home flea treatment, safe to use around pets and humans
  • Made with an all natural ingredient, contains no harmful chemicals
  • Environmentally friendly, fragrance- and color-free
  • Prevents future adult fleas from emerging
  • Part of a complete flea regimen
  • Saltlike mineral sprinkles easily onto infested areas
How it Works:

Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment contains Orthoboric acid, a salt-like granule, which removes moisture from a flea's body causing dehydration, killing the larvae, and therefore breaking the life cycle. Orthoboric acid is odorless and does not repel flea larvae, so multiplying larvae will continue to stay in treated areas until they die, which ultimately prevents adult fleas from emerging in your home. This product is not intended to kill adult fleas; only the larval stages, therefore allow 10-14 days for it to work.

Cautions:

Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not apply to people or pets. Children and pets should be kept out of any room while it is being treated. Be careful not to use around ornamental plants.

Brand Name:

Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment

100% Orthoboric Acid

What is this product used for:

Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment is a natural home flea treatment that contains Orthoboric acid, which is sprinkled onto dry surfaces in your home to eradicate flea larvae. This product is not intended to kill the adult flea population, or to be used on yourself or your pet. It is used to kill the larval stage of flea infestations in your home, preventing adult fleas from emerging.

Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment, a natural home flea treatment is part of a complete flea treatment regimen to help eradicate flea infestations. You must treat all areas in and around your home to ensure your surroundings are flea-free. Not only must you treat your home for fleas but you need to treat your pet as well, using other natural flea treatment products, such as Be Flea Free Shampoo and Be Flea Free Spray (both for dogs only). Flea prevention is the key to ensuring healthy pets and healthy surroundings. To keep fleas at bay, use a monthly topical flea treatment like Frontline Plus. In addition, eradicate fleas in your yard by keeping your lawn short and picking up grass clippings where fleas like to live and by using insecticides like the Virbac Yard Spray.

Any visible material must be either brushed into carpeting or removed. Also, sprinkle onto couch cushions, under beds and other furniture, especially where your pet frequents. Leave on carpets and other surroundings for 2-3 weeks then vacuum as normal. Do not steam clean carpets for 2-3 weeks.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Preparation: Before treating any rooms, remove your pets and children from infected areas. Vacuum all areas thoroughly and wash bedding, toys, clothes and any other items your pet may have come in contact with. Twist the top dial until you see the little arrow that says "push". With either your thumb or a blunt object, poke through the protective covering on the Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment canister and twist the dial to desired flow amount.
  • To Use: Make sure surfaces are dry before applying. In carpeted areas, sprinkle approximately one 20 oz canister of Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment for every 500 square feet of carpeting. Work product into the carpet using a hard bristled brush, taking care to brush all visible material into the carpet fibers and floors. If the entire product doesn't disappear into the carpet, remove excess. In addition, sprinkle under couch cushions, beds, other furniture, and especially areas where your pet frequently walks or sleeps. Once you have applied the product correctly, you may allow pets and children back into the room. In addition, you should not vacuum for at least 2 weeks to give Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment time to work properly. Richard's Organics First Defense Premise Treatment will lose effectiveness if it is allowed to absorb moisture such as that from a steam cleaner; if this is the case, reapply. Within 10 to 14 days after successful application, your infestation will end.
Tip:

Remember, prevention is key when it comes to fleas. To ensure a flea-free home, we recommend using Flea5X Plus as a monthly topical treatment for your pet. This product is for the home only and not to be placed on your pet.

Do you have to keep Premise Treatment on the carpet for 3 weeks?

Did I read that right? Do you have to keep the product on the rugs without vacuuming for weeks? I would like an all natural flea treatment for home.
Asked by: Beth
Thank you for your question. You should not vacuum for two weeks after you have applied the Premise Treatment to your carpets as this will allow it the accurate time to kill the life cycle of the flea.

if cats are loosing hair from grooming & have scabs in area, is this from fleas?

Asked by: Farmer_Art
While it could be fleas there are many other conditions your cats could have. If your cats use a flea prevention and you do not see fleas, your cats may really be dealing with dry skin. Because it is winter time and with heating it maybe as simple as that. We would recommend an omega 3 supplement like this http://www.1800petmeds.com/Nordic+Naturals+Omega+3+Pet-prod10859.html
