Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TXdoityourselfer Works Very Well!
I had my doubts about this product when I saw it in the store. It just seemed like such a simple concept for it to work. But I was at my wits end. My dog had a terrible flea infestation and the fleas had made it indoors and taken up residence in my kitchen, living room, and of course the bedroom where Gizmo sleeps. I would step on my floors with white socks on, and in a matter of seconds, I could see the fleas jumping on my white socks. I had used at least 5 foggers, flea spray, insect spray, carpet powders, NOTHING would work! I even kept a glass of bleach on my bedside table because I would pull fleas off of me during the night and drown them in the bleach. So I thought. These fleas just would not die. I thought I had nothing to lose by trying the "Ultimate Flea Trap." The first night it caught about 25 fleas. I was very pleased, but at the same time I was disappointed because I had just set off three flea bombers and they apparently didn't kill much, except for my wallet. Everyday I noticed that more and more fleas were being caught. It definitely works. I move it around different areas of the house where I think there might be fleas hiding. This thing also caught some things I wasn't looking for, water bugs, or what he call here in Texas caca-roaches! I didn't even know I had them inside the house, LOL! Anyway, it's a good product and it does work. I still find the occasional flea, but nothing compared to what I had. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OneManGang Product works as stated, plus captures additional insects.
My poor cat has been going crazy scratching, including getting flea dermatitis, even after bombing the house with 7 cans of fogger. She hates getting the flea stuff put on her neck. When I received the unit, and placed it into service, I started capturing fleas rapidly and had to change the disk only a week later. Safe, environmentally safe unless the cat’s tail gets stuck on the pad but she now knows to stay away even a foot away now. However the shield does keep the cat away from the sticky disk but long haired/fur cats, may need to learn to stay away. It really didn’t hurt my cat just scared her.
This unit works like it was designed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jul Love this flea trap!
I bought one of these flea traps several days ago when I was at my wits end with "natural traps", flea medications, including Pet Armour, and being attacked every time my feet hit the floor! Within an hour, I was so happy to see the flea bodies on the sticky pad! Felt like a bit of a victory.
Although I still cannot get my two cats fleas under control, and I do still have fleas, it is SO much better!
I do have a suggestion for someone thinking about getting this product; buy one unit for each room that there is a problem, get the refill pack of 3 also. I was only able to buy one unit and refill pack, and move the unit as needed.
I highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anberlin69 Alcatraz for fleas! Amazing product!
Unfortunately during this season flea populations are on the rise and if you’ve got pets at home you know exactly how that goes. I recently purchased 2 of these traps and they worked even better than I could have imagined. Within the first night I awoke to a trap filled with what appeared to be hundreds of fleas, which is kind of scary at first but knowing that those fleas won’t be getting on your beloved pets is quite reassuring and you eventually almost end up feeling like a hunter and get excited about your daily “catch”.Setup is super easy and you can be trapping fleas within 2 minutes of opening the box. I like to place one trap in each room and they work like a charm, especially during the night. The heat from the light bulb in the trap replicates warmth from a body and attracts the fleas and once they jump in they are stuck on the adhesive glue sheet. This glue sheet is STRONG, I have yet to see a flea escape the trap. Once you’ve collected enough fleas that you can barely see the glue sheet toss it out and replace with a refill. This is a very simple and user friendly product.Huge plus: Non toxic and safe to have around your pets!This is a great addition to other flea control methods you might already be doing. I do have some advice, the trap kit comes with 2 glue sheets so if you have a lot of fleas make sure you get some of the Victor flea trap refill sheets while you’re at it, you’re going to need them!Hasta la vista fleas!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jjjerm This product works great.
After petsitting a friend's ferrets, our house was infested with fleas. I bought these as an afterthought, and also bought 3 large bottles of insecticide and a pump/pressure sprayer. We dipped the animals, and moved out all the furniture and sprayed the entire carpet and then laid these traps: 2 in the living room and 1 in each bedroom under the bed. They work great. I would have thought with my spraying and dipping that I'd killed them all, but within a couple hours we had caught one. 2 weeks later, we counted 62 in one of the bedroom traps, and about that many in one of the living room traps. As an added bonus, those little annoying fruit flies seem to be attracted to them to, so we've got equal parts fleas and fruitflies in one of the living room traps. These things really do work great. Simple, non-toxic, and extremely effective. I would definitely recommend this. Not so happy about the spray that I used initially (you'd think that would have killed them all initially), but luckily I'd bought these as part of my 3-pronged approach. With regular bathing (about once a week) with flea shampoo and these traps, we're no longer infested...all the fleas just end up in the trap. See picture, this is one of the ones under the bed, after about 2-3 weeks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raven Great for houses with kids
I love these flea traps! They are easy to change to a new pad and the light really atracts the fleas. They are safe to use anywhere and make great night lights. Non poison so you don't have to worry about your other pets or kids while using them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chelle This is not my first purchase of the Flea Traps from Home Depot
These traps are very easy to set up and they actually DO work. I don't like thinking of putting chemicals on my carpet or using foggers in my home, just not knowing what these may do to my three cats. I use them in addition with vet prescribed medications, and within three months new had a totally out of control infestation completely GONE!!
