    After spraying on carpet, do you need to shampoo carpet when the spray dries. Do you have to scrub couch / chairs/furniture after spraying knock out on them? Is the furniture safe to use again without being cleaned after treatment?

    This product works great. After applying Frontline ( which didn't work) we ordered this and Capstar Blue. The fleas are finally disappearing.

    "Knock Out" gets rid of fleas and keeps them away. We often get cats and kittens at the rescue that have to be treated for fleas immediately. Then we spray the treatment area for any fleas that get away. We would never be without it.

    Knock Out is the Best!
    October 8, 2015
    This is the best stuff on the market! We were infested with fleas for the first time ever and I tried everything for 3 weeks straight,This is the only thing that truly got rid of the fleas and keeps them away! Well worth the money spent, I could have saved a bundle on flea products if I had started here instead!

    Great stuff!

    This product works great in the house, shed, etc. It's a spot treatment that kills fleas and as I found and use it for, those pesky little ants. I find it's quite safe too. I've used it for years and will continue to do so.

    On a whim I purchased several of these and it must have been a premonition because my dog got fleas!!!! And the worst part, they were biting me too! I did use a prescription flea killer, that didn't kill the fleas and in the mean time I was getting bitten by them! I checked my dog and she had them and I scratched myself and I got one on my nail and I found one jumping on me as well! I tore the bed apart and sprayed, sprayed, sprayed and sprayed, sprayed, sprayed the carpet and her bedding and everywhere she had gone, for... two weeks! They are finally gone, but I was traumatized! No more thanks to this product.

    My vet recommended Knockout to kill the flea in my home. It worked quickly. I now buy it from Entirely Pets as it is more cost effective.

    This is the best way to get rid of ticks. A few years ago, one of my dogs got ticks at the groomers, of all places. I did not realize how bad it was until they were everywhere. I tried everything to get rid of them but they kept reappearing. My vet recommended that I use Knockout spray and put Preventic collars on my dogs and end of ticks! I recommend this to everyone.

    not worth it
    January 5, 2014
    best to call in a professional since these products just are not strong enough when you have an infested house and you will waste more money. professional treatments are guaranteed and will work with you til the issue is resolved. I purchased this from my vet and online and went through two cans and it just did not work.

    I believe I have a fairly small house, but this product did not even cover my area rugs. Further more, it did not work. I had to flea bomb my home.

    Virbac did the job
    July 31, 2013
    Our pet sitter applied Virbac to all our carpeted areas while we were away in June. It's now August and we haven't seen any more fleas in the house. I will certainly reach for Virbac if the fleas ever reappear.

    We needed a product you could use indoors to help rid fleas and this worked for us. It works on carpet and fabrics.

    Why use flea bombs and have to leave the house for hours when you can use this. It works far better too. Our vet recommended this and even sells it but it is far more expensive at the vet.

    Best on the market

    This is the best flea product on the market. I worked for a pet store and used every product we sold and they didn't work. Bought a can of Virbac from the Vet and it worked almost instantly. Found them on this site for more than half the price and bought 4 cans and my flea issues are gone.

    Great product.

    Since having to have our cat put down we have been overrun with fleas. Knockout is the best product we have found to kill them. We can safely spray knockout just about anywhere (drapes, carpets, sofas, etc.). We ordered the spray and were told it had been back ordered, Even so, it didn't take too long to receive our order. We have been very satisfied with the spray.

    First-Time Flea Horror
    August 8, 2012
    We have sprayed this several times within two weeks. It is better than Raid certainly. I only rate four stars, because the young neighbor downstairs must have a resistant strain of fleas that got onto her dog. He is a sweet cockapoo that wails from being left alone for hours and bugs visibly fly around and off him, so Lord knows what the poor mutt is infested with that has spread to our unit. The student never reported the dog to avoid the pet fee and pet rent and seems not to clean or vet Bear at all. This is a "gated community" and the management and maintenance are too lax and cheap to tackle this crisis. We will order more. Our two little dogs were always on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. Our home is not! We alternate Virbac or an herbal shampoo every other week for their weekly baths. Do every closet, and follow instructions. Seal off rooms, and remove food, toothbrushes, etc. We did the walk-in closet, bathroom, then bedroom, closing each door for two hours, then airing the section out. Then the kitchen in only a few wall areas, pantry closet, foyer, L/R and dining were done the same way, while we were in the other part of the apartment or away.

    We have a 4 month old baby -getting ready to crawl- do we need to deep clean the carpet after using this product? What precautions should we take? We don√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ęt want fleas but we also don√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ęt want to harm our child.

    How much will it cover per can?
    1 Answer
    This can covers approximately 6,000 cubic feet of unobstructed area. Some sources cite it as covering 2,000 square feet, which would mean that it covers 3-feet of height corresponding to this particular area.
