I have recently discovered fleas on my cats. I was reading your very informative articles and saw that this product, Precor 2000, is helpful in getting rid of fleas in the house, carpets and on furniture. However, I read that the active ingredient is permethrin, which is toxic to cats. If I spray it in the house, can it hurt my cats? If it will, what can I use to get rid of fleas in the house so that the cats won’t get re-infested?
No doubt certain active ingredients can be irritable to cats and pyrethroids seem to lead the way. To avoid any problems like this, go with the ONCE A YEAR FLEA GRANULES for the carpeted area. Combine the treatment with some FLEA TRAPS and you’ll have a safe alternative for the pet as well as product that lasts longer than any other.
