Diatomacious Earth (DE) is an effective flea & insect control that can be spread on your lawn and around pet bedding areas. Here’s sites about using Horticultural Grade DE :http://www.geocities.com/KelliAnn293/dia…http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load…
Peppermint and Eucalyptus & many plants & herbs re a natural flea control & makes an excellent non-toxic shampoo (if you have pets)http://www.awarenessmag.com/julaug8/JA8_… erigeron, sweet orange, sassafras,spearmint,eucalyptus…
Plants: basil, camomile, costmary, cowslip, daisies, fennel, garlic, germander, hops, marjoram, meadowsweet, mint, pennyroyal, pine, rose, rosemary, sage, southernwood, sweet flag, sweet woodruff, tansy, thuja, thyme, sweet violet, winter savory.http://www.henriettesherbal.com/archives…
Biologic control using the beneficial nematode Steinernema carpocapsa is based on the fact that these nematodes parasitise the flea (and other insects) larvae and result in their destruction. The nematodes are applied as a spray to the ground. Application of the nematodes must be periodically repeated & is best suited for situations where the pet spends a high percentage of time outdoors & it’s applied to shaded areas & would only be one part of a larger flea control program. This site has a lot more info on other flea controls (how to make a natural flea powder & shampoo):http://lowchensaustralia.com/pests/bites…
Good luck! Hope this helps.
P.S.(Pennyroyal kills fleas, but be careful. Pennyroyal, Rue & Wormwood & some UNDILUTED essential oils may be too risky to use directly on pets & some pets have an adverse reaction even to Rosemary.) ORANGE, GRAPEFRUIT, LEMON & LIME OILS – derived from the peels of these citrus fruits, contain d-Limonene, which is lethal to fleas but safe for dogs.
Triazicide insecticide. It comes in a granular form and apply it directly to your lawn.
Orhto has a product called Bug B Gon Max, it comes in a granular form, so you will need a spreader to put it down. It kills over 150 insects in your lawn, make sure you apply it to a dry lawn and water it in immediately. IT LASTS ALL SEASON LONG!!!!!
Try calling an exterminator and ask how much he will charge to spray your yard with Deltic. This product is sold only to licensed applicators unless you have a lawn and garden supply that will not check license numbers. This product will kill everything that crawls period. Matter of fact it is an oil base that will last a long time. Usually 3 rainy days or a month or two if no big rain days. Oh! It also kills mosquitoes up to 8 feet in the air. This product has a vapor that smells and kills everything even by the water. You can live with the smell it is not that bad. I had a lady that was infested with fleas and I used Deltic. She walked out in her yard with white jeans on while I was spraying and could not find anything that crawled. She also had mosquitoes because she lived on the bank of a lake. She wore a sleeveless shirt and had a party in the yard that night. I really enjoyed it because she told her friends and I ended up spraying over 30 houses. ex-exterminator.
Go to the local garden center NOT HOME DEPOT, and ask them.
The safest and cheapest method of getting rid of fleas is to use a mixture of boric acid and salt. More information on getting rid of fleas is available at http://pests.in/fleas.html
my wife hates fleas and when bitten whelps up pretty bad even from mosquito’s bites.we have a chocolate lab (indoors) but loves to run around outside. my wife wen to Tractor Supply Co. and bought ” Ground Work” which is a spray that you hook up to your hose. so there is no mixing. it is used against roach,ant and flea and seems to work very well. we don’t have a flee problem.
you cant so dont waste ur money!!! You need to get a flea collar and put it around ur cat! Then by flea powder and put it on the cat b4 it goes outside and after it comes inside! YOu cant get rid of the fleas bcuz some leave deep in the ground and you arent gonna get them all and a pair can make thousands in a months! Also fleas might *** in from next door and fill your yard up again with fleas!
