How to Be Tough in Lawn Flea Control and Treatment

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
While the most aggravating part of a flea problem is when it occurs inside your house, an infested lawn can lead to internal invasion quickly. If you discover fleas in your house, on your lawn, on your pet, or on your clothing it is best to take action on all fronts""with fleas there is no such thing as over-reacting.

Most home-owners efforts seem erroneously aimed at killing fleas in the lawn, where fleas are actually the LEAST likely to be found anywhere on the entire yard (including indoors). So the last place one should put any effort into ridding fleas in the yard is the lawn.

Though not all pet-owners experience a flea problem the chances of having fleas in your home if you have an animal is significantly higher than if you do not own furry creatures. Still, since fleas feed and immediately get off the body of their prey it is possible that you can have a flea infested house or yard even if you actually do not own a pet.

Fleas live in the dirt and grass outside of your home. The best way to get rid these pests is to spray insecticide on your lawn. This method, however, can be harmful to pets. Using products that have combinations with organo-phosphate pesticide chemicals such as Carbaryl, Malathion, or Lindane is a bad idea, as these are toxic. Pyrethrum extracted from Chrysanthemum flowers is a natural pesticide that won't hurt Fido.

If you are anti-pesticide you can use diatomaceous earth on your lawn. These small particles of earth are microscopic plants. When they are dried they assume a sharp shape. When you spread the diatomaceous earth in a flea-ridden region it coats the fleas, cuts them, they dehydrate and then they die. It is a natural way of eliminating unwanted pests from your lawn; however, diatomaceous earth can stick to the surface of your soil and cause irritation problems. Additionally this substitute earth does not break down when the lungs inhale it. This is generally not a problem for humans who are tall enough for the earth not to interfere with breathing. Animals that are low to the ground may suffer breathing problems associated with the use of diatomaceous earth.

Additionally, you should line the perimeter of your yard with cedar chips or eucalyptus leaves. Fleas can't stand the smell of these pungent trees, so they will act as a barrier against fleas entering your yard from surrounding areas.

In general, keeping your yard clean and well maintained will help prevent bug infestations. Create a yard flea treatment program that works for you. Mow your lawn regularly and add fresh layers of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth and cedar chips as needed and watch as your yard is transformed into a flea-free zone.
