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.
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.
