Hot Shot® Bedbug & Flea Fogger
I had a minor infestation for a week or so, but none of the sprays I used seemed to help. Then I suddenly had *thousands*. Within a step or two of entering the house, I would be covered in fleas. At this point, my legs are basically giant welts from the hundreds of bites, and I had to stay in a hotel last night to escape from the hordes.
Given the 2.5-star rating, I was very concerned this would be a waste of time, money, and energy. However, I had already bought the foggers before reading the reviews, so I went ahead and tried them.
They worked AMAZINGLY well!! My house is 1000 sq. ft. with an 8ft ceiling (8000 cubic ft). The box said 2000 cubic ft per fogger, so I bought two boxes. I just went ahead and used all 6 rather than just 4. I left the house empty for about three hours while I treated the yard. When I re-entered, ALL of them were gone. I have been in the house for three hours now without a single bite. I am so extremely thankful that I finally found a product that works that I am almost in tears.
Re-reading a number of the reviews, it has also become obvious that the reason people have been disappointed in the results is because they don't really understand the difference between "square feet" and "cubic feet". When used as instructed, this product can and does work miracles.

Still fighting the problem
My daughter has done all the steps needed for getting rid of fleas. I finally got tired of seeing my grandchild with bites all over him so I purchased the bedbug and flea foggers. After letting the house sit for approx. 6 hours we re-entered the house and still had fleas jumping on us. Thought it might take some time but now after 2 days they are still jumping and biting.

Works for me
I'm currently battling bedbugs, it's bein the longest stressed out 3 weeks. I only used the foggers once when I first found out I had bedbugs, since then everyday once a day I spray everything in all 3 of the rooms with bugs sometimes twice a day. I'm noticing less and less, and will be doing another fogger treatment. Just staying on top of it is helping. Your product works very well.

It will get rid of bedbugs but you have to keep on it.
Shortly after moving into my apartment I noticed something going on. I was breaking out in a rash and all the doctor could tell me was I was allergic to something. Finally after a lot of investigation I discovered I had bedbugs and then it was confirmed when I actually saw one. I informed my landlord and he told me that the tenants who lived in my unit before me but moved downstairs told him they had seen some in their apartment as well. We had a professional exterminator come in and he advised us what we needed to do and it would have cost my landlord a few thousand dollars had he taken his advice. I had researched bedbugs quite thoroughly (thank you google but it was a horrible feeling knowing what I was dealing with) and had an understanding of their life cycle. We each fogged on the same day and we did it 4 weeks in a row. After the last application we never saw another one again. This product works!

More than what I expected
I used to babysit a girl who lived full time in a motel with her mom, and of course i got bed bugs. I bought these bombs without much hope, because after 9 months of living with bedbugs (including a move, replacing furniture, getting rid of clothing and my kids stuffed animals, etc etc etc etc etc ad nauseum), i have realized that bed bugs are actually the epitome of evil on earth. But, I can't afford a professional, and I was tired of the 100's of bites on me (fortunately, I am apparently the only one in my home who is allergic to them; my 3 year old has never once had a bite show up) so I got the bombs mostly just to try and reduce the misery. I bomb once every 7 days (my apartment is small enough that 1 bomb will do it all, so a 3 pack lasts 3 weeks) and i am bite free normally up until the 5th or 6th day, most likely because the eggs that didnt die start hatching around then.
Keep in mind -- I live in a very very old apartment, with walls that are more crack than wall, and a lot of the "sealing and preventing return" measures just aren't possible here. I *knew when I bough the product* that it wasn't going to be a 100% cure. My hope is that if I keep it up long enough, with enough vacuuming and spraying (it really is important that you use the hot shot spray along with the bombs, and do as much sealing and cleaning as you can) the bugs will get tired of the hostile living environment and move on. (Yes, I probably give them too much credit... they are far too busy being evil to do that... but at least I can make it through a day without cutting myself open scratching anymore.)
Bed bug removal is a HUGE JOB. opening a can and expecting it to cure your home isnt going to work. But it absolutely can offer you some relief.
(No clue how it works for fleas, my cat doesnt have them. )

I hope it works, but it's a lot of work.
I used this product yesterday came home cleaned house top to bottom; vacuuming, mopping, washing everything. We were not bitten at all last night. Today we have found a total of five live ones throughout the day. I'm planning on doing another fogger but wanted to know exactly when or what day I should do the next treatment, since we have found lives ones. Thank you.

This product works great on bedbugs!!!!
First off this product will not kill flea or bedbug EGGS, just ones that are alive!!! Bedbug eggs hatch every 7-21 days but it takes a new hatched one 21 days to be able to reproduce. These statistics are very important in ridding yourself of these!!!! I have a rooming house and have had the problem only once in 10 years but to be successful you need to pull all drawers out, and even flip the furniture over the other way each time you bomb!! It will take 4 bombings, 7 days apart to have this product work!!!! You need to open up closets, kneewalls, etc and make sure the house is sealed tightly as possible. Be patient, it works!!!!!
