Treating the Yard

The last of the important trio to treat when getting rid of fleas is your yard.  There are many products available to treat your yard.  Be sure to read the instructions carefully when using any of these products and keep your dog away from the yard while the treatments are trying and settling.  Be sure to treat all of the areas that were mentioned in the walk-through you did in your yard.   Before getting started with treating your yard, clean up out there thoroughly; mow, weed eat, rake and take care of any leaf or wood piles that you have around.  Once the yard is clean, it’s ready for treatment.

Outdoor Sprays – Outdoor flea sprays can be used in all the areas that you have noted needing treatment.  Corners of outbuildings, in the dog house, under the porches and decks, in damp or moist areas, etc.  Anywhere you noted on your list include in your spraying.  Be sure to check the spray you’re getting and get a safe outdoor spray that won’t kill your plants, flowers and animals.  Make sure there are no toys lying around while you spray and wear the proper safety gear as well such as goggles, mask, and gloves.

Diatomaceous Earth – This powder is a non-toxic flea treatment that is made from finely ground fossils that is fed to animals to control internal pests that can plague them.  It’s also sprinkled on the dog’s bedding in the dog house to control fleas.  Many use it instead of boric acid due to its non toxic properties.

Flooding the Yard – While this doesn’t involve chemicals or a product, flooding the yard can be a way to get rid of the fleas. Eggs and larvae can’t survive when flooded with water but this method is to be used AFTER the fleas have been taken care of as it will not kill the adult fleas or the pupae at all.
