Although these pest are not turf-destroying pest, they are
a problem for many homeowners and their fury family members, they can
transmit diseases from rodents or other mammals to humans as well as tapeworms.
If you have or previously had a flea problem, one part of the solution may be surface feeding insect control.
A good pest management program involves multiple points of treatment and a surface feeding insect application could help to
control the flea population in your yard. It is important to keep in mind that treating the lawn is only one front in the battle against fleas.
What homeowners can do about fleas:
Vacuum the floor daily. Ensure that you get under furniture and rugs.
Also vacuum or use a hose to get up tight to the base boards.
After vacuuming, place or empty contents into a large plastic bag and discard away from home.
Note: As you vacuum, you may disturb unhatched eggs causing them to hatch. This is part of the reason you need to vacuum regularly.
Shampoo the carpet. Some soaps can help break up an insects exoskeleton shell and dehydrate the pest.
Using insect growth regulators will stop the egg or larvae life stages from continuing on (though does not effect the pupae or adult stage).
Products for pets, such as topical, powders, oral or collars will kill the adult stage.
Wash pet bedding regularly.
Keep your lawn trimmed on a regular basis to deter fleas from nesting on your lawn.
Surface feeding insect control will target these pest and rid them from the yard.
Aerosols can be used to fog complete rooms and destroy the adult (ensure all pilot lights are off prior to fogging a room).
Insecticide spray directed into cracks and base boards will help to target hidden larvae
