  • I use frontline for my pets and I don't have any in my yard. If u used something on your pets u would not have a problem with them in your yard.

  • There is a spray that you hook up to the hose and spray the lawn and it will get rid of the ones in the yard....then you can do a flea bath and you can get pills from the vet that will kill any flea that bites them....works wonders for my dogs...Good luck

  • I keep my pets on Frontline, Revolution or advantage year round and never have to worry about fleas.

  • Bath your dogs then put frontline, flea pill, ect.. And the cheapest way to treat your yard is 7 dust.. It will look like it snowed but cover your yard with it, make sure it has a few days to set before raining... You can also put this on outside dogs, I would not recommend it on inside dogs.

  • One of my dogs had Parvo a couple of yrs. ago and we let ours out on a lease to go outside on about a 15' radius. Our vet said to pour bleach in that area to kill the parvo germ if, any. I did and none of the dogs got sick and I haven't seen a Flea either since. They had them the yr before. By the way my Little Bit made it through the parvo with a lot of TLC and I even slept in the bathroom floor with her.

  • Treat your pets. We went online and got some organic stuff you put in the yard and around your house. I can't remember the name of the stuff but you can google it.
