I’ve got a bird feeder in my yard which attracts alot of birds. Unfortunately, it also attracts alot of the neighborhood cats. I don’t have any pets but I’ve got FLEAS!!! How can I safely treat my yard to control these menacing fleas and not hurt all the birds I enjoy???? I don’t really care about the cats but I LOVE my birds!

I have read your flea control article and want to do a flea carpet treatment but I’m not sure if I should use your flea spray or the flea carpet granules. I have them bad. Every day we vacuum but they come right back within an hour. I’d say we’re picking 30-50 off our legs daily. Which products would you advise we get? The pets are being treated daily and I do plan on getting some of the products you recommend for them too but I understand this process will take awhile to resolve. I just want to use the best flea carpet treatment products and will await your answer before I order anything.

I’ve got a dog that’s been fighting fleas this whole winter. Now his skin is sore and my house is still infested. I’ve had a pest control company spray over and and over but it’s not helping. I’m afraid to spray anymore but I’ve got to do something. Help!!

I’ve got several dogs that roam through an area that’s about 1/2 acre. We had a bad flea and tick problem last year and I don’t want them around this season. What can I do now to stop them from infesting my yard?

Do you know if high humidity will help fleas? I’m thinking my basement, which is always really moist, is an ideal place for fleas to be reproducing and since we seem to get a flea problem there each summer, I’m thinking the humidity might be the problem. Do you know if reducing the humidity will help stop the fleas from multiplying so much?

I’ve heard about the once a year flea carpet treatment and I’m wondering if it really works. I see you sell this product; have you had good success with it?

We have been selling ONCE A YEAR TREATMENTS for over ten years and we have found it to work very well. This is probably because the flea granules get down to the bottom or nap of the carpeting where flea eggs and larvae seem to gravitate. The eggs and larvae die off by contact since the flea granules work as a drying agent and essentially dehydrates them before they can grow up to biting adults. By keeping the flea cycle in check, fleas are never able to get established in the carpeting which really makes flea control easy. As our on line Flea Control article explains, breaking the flea cycle is paramount when treating and it just seems like the once a year treatment does this the best.

I have a pet dog that seems to get one or two fleas every time he goes out in the yard. I don’t see any animals out there except some squirrels and cats that hang around the bird feeder. Could he be getting fleas from them?

I see several products on your site that can kill fleas but I’m mostly interested in killing the eggs. I don’t have a problem yet but I don’t want to get one either. What product would be best to apply now to kill flea eggs?

I used to get a product called Flea Terminator. It was a once a year flea control product that worked great. I would sprinkle it out onto my carpet, broom it in and get flea control for a year or more. I can’t seem to find the product locally anymore and was wondering if you knew where I might be able to get some?

I’ve heard that 20 muleteam borax can be used for flea control but I can’t find fleas on the product label. Is this something you sell or should borax be used for flea control at all?

I’ve had fleas in the yard late in the summer. But this year I’ve seen some now, in the spring? Is it possible they could be active now?

Fleas can be active pretty much anytime. It is true that outside, in the yard, they will go dormant when local temperatures get cool. But in the house they can live quite comfortably all year long. And since so many people have pets, fleas can prosper in someone elses house and be brought to the work place where other people can pick them up. For this reason it’s smart to be aware of the local flea status if you are a pet owner and have had flea infestations in the past as our on line flea control article explains.

I’ve got fleas out in my garage floor that have gotten out of hand. We generally keep the dog out in the garage a lot (we don’t use it for the car) but started noticing fleas so we moved him out. I thought the fleas would die but a couple of weeks later we went in there to get a box and there must have been 50-100 that attacked!! No one wants to go out there anymore but I’ve got to do something to get rid of them. What can I use on cement?
