The ultimate outside flea removal guide
of how to get rid of fleas in your
lawns, gardens and yards

Getting rid of fleas in curtains and drapes

We are often asked "how long does it take to get rid of fleas from lawns, gardens and yards?

The reality is, that fleas will only last as long as you let them. If your primary goal is getting rid of fleas and you commit yourself to the removal process, then you can be free of fleas within a few weeks.

Just a word of caution though, please make sure that you address all the areas that are discussed in other pages of this website:

  • Your pets
  • All areas inside your home - carpets, furniture, curtains, beds.
  • All areas outside your home - lawns, gardens, yards, vehicles, garages and out buildings e.g. garden sheds, dogs kennels.

This 3-pronged attack, is the only way you will get rid of your flea infestation on a permanent basis.

Fleas flourish and breed in humid, shady, moist and warm areas. If you take a look around the outside of your home, you will see there are plenty of places that fleas could set up camp during the warm months of spring and summer.

One very good preventative measure is to flood your lawns, gardens and yards on a regular basis during dry weather. This kills two birds with one stone. First of all water washes away the feces of adult fleas, which is the main source of food for any larvae that survive the dowsing, and secondly, fleas and larvae can not survive being emersed in water for long periods of time.

Obviously, nature takes care of fleas and larvae during rainy seasons, so it is very important to remember this simple and easy tip, to flood your outside surrounds during summer and dry periods.

Other areas that need your attention are out door furniture, dogs kennels, rabbit hutches, garden sheds, outside garages, in fact any buildings out side where your pets frequent and sleep. All need disinfecting and spraying with an effective anti flea spray, please browse our Stop The Fleas Products range for a variety of outdoor sprays, crystals and powders, all of which are safe for children, pets and plants.

We always encourage natural methods for getting rid of fleas. We suggest some very effective and safe methods of getting rid of fleas in the outside areas of you home in our segment on Home Flea Remedies.

If you would prefer, you can always call in a pesticide professional. Now days most professionals carry products that are not harmful to children and pets and they are also experts at knowing where pesky little fleas like to hang out.

Caution

How to get rid of fleas

Recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) research, indicates that 50% of American families use some type of chemical flea and tick control on their pets.

In so doing, they are unwittingly exposing millions of pets, kids and indeed themselves to toxic chemicals on a daily basis.

Plus there is a similar knock on effect for people who work in the pet industry, e.g. groomers and boarding kennels. If you are a member of one of these families, or you work in the pet industry, then you must watch the following video.

It is fair to say if 50% of American families are using chemical flea and tick control, then a similar yard stick can be applied to other countries, e.g. Canada, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Pet death and pet illnesses due to adverse reactions to chemical flea and tick products

In the following video, as part of the federal Government's investigation of the safety of chemical pet control products, Chris May speaks to Cindy Tanghetti about the loss of her Golden Retriever; to Jan Jaffe about her dog requiring four blood transfusions; and Judy Waylen about her dog's hair loss and horrible crusty skin disease - all due to the use of various toxic chemical flea and tick control products.
