Outdoor Flea Control

Controlling fleas in your yard

Pets with flea sensitivity will not respond to flea treatment if it does not include environmental control. If your pets spend most of their time outdoors, it's important to treat these areas, but you should also include indoor flea and tick control as part of your overall flea control plan. Attention to your yard is crucial if the climate is warm, especially if it is warm year-round.

Rid your yard of fleas
  • Sprays: Virbac Yard Spray Concentrate - contains a pyrethroid for rapid knock down of fleas and ticks. It comes with a sprayer, easily attaching to a hose to cover 6000 sq feet of yard and kennel. Or, it can be diluted and applied with a watering can.
  • Beneficial nematodes: - Nematodes, (Steinernema carpocapsae), have a limited area and season of usefulness because they are killed by temperatures above 95°F or below 45°F. Within their operating range, they can be quite effective.
  • Desiccants: - Diatomaceous earth, silica gel, and sodium borate are desiccants, which means they pull water from the flea (egg, adult, and pupal) so that it dries up and dies. Desiccants do not harm dogs, cats, humans, or other mammals.
Areas to treat for flea control
  • Pet's sleeping areas, including dog house, kennels, garages and carports
  • Moist, shaded areas, gardens, shrubs, mulched areas, under decks
How often should I treat my yard to control fleas?

To control a serious flea infestation, repeat your outdoor flea treatment every 2-3 weeks for at least 6 weeks. Once the fleas are under control, maintenance treatments should be performed every 4-6 weeks thereafter. At the same time you're treating your home and yard, use flea control treatments on your pet.
