Q.I bought Safer Model 5168 at Lowes. The Lowes website said that this model was safe for children and pets. I am going to ask this question directly of the manufacturer and this website. Is SAFER model 5168 Ant and Crawling Insect Killer SAFE as in will not cause harm or death to children and or pets if it used where children and or pets have access to it? Thank you
A.

This product is a registered pesticide and should be used with caution around children and pets. We do not recommend ingesting/inhaling the product.

Q.Is this product safe to use around pets? I have a small dog that will put anything in her mouth. If she ingested this powder would it harm her?
A.

We recommend using this product with caution around humans and domestic animals. This product should not be ingested or inhaled.

Q.What is the difference between this omri listed product and the 4lb bag product? you state that the bagged product can not be used in a garden, yet the omri listing of the bottled product implies that it is safe to use in an organic garden. Thanks.
A.

The ingredients in each of these products are slightly different. Model 5168 includes Silicon Dioxide from Diatomaceous Earth (77.69%) and other ingredients (22.31%); model 51703 includes Silicon Dioxide (85%) and other ingredients (15%). Neither product is recommended for use in a vegetable garden but is recommended for use in cracks and crevices where insects are found. 

Q.How long do you leave the dust on your floors to kill fleas?...immediately vacuum, vacuum in a day, a few days...? I've only found a few fleas, so it's not a huge infestation or anything.
A.

Once an insect crawls through or ingests the product, they will die within approximately 48 hours. It is recommended to keep the product down for a few days to allow time for insects to interact with the dust. There is no specific time frame for when to clean up the powder.

Q.Can I apply this powder to my carpet, allow it to sit, then vacuum it up to very rid of these tiny black and invading my upstairs rooms?
A.

This product can be lightly applied to surrounding cracks and crevices, baseboards, carpeting, and wherever the small insects are suspected. To clean up the product, we recommend using a shop vac or filterless vacuum.
