  • I believe that you can get a spray for the yard that is pet safe

  • You can buy a product By Adams. You can use it both inside and outside. I have bought it at Petco. Also, there is a new monthly pill for a dog called Comfortis that will prevent him from getting fleas. This year they have combined that pill and his heart worm prevention pill and it's now called Trifexis. I know it won't kill the fleas outside, but they will die once they get on your pet, which will prevent them from coming inside.

  • I got a groupon deal, and had my yard professionally treated for fleas, ticks and mosquitos.

  • There are sprays for your yard. And use a treatment like Comfortis for the dogs.

  • I say gather up all the neighborhood dogs and cats and invite them to your yard.......in hopes they hitch a ride on the animals and leave the sand pit yard! LOL

    Just kidding, I have the same issue with ALOT of sand and some grass.......treat the yard like a few posted and check with your vet about something for your pet.

    If you can try to treat the yard and get some sod for your sandy area...hopefully the grass with grow and help cut down on that area where there is just sand.

    Good luck!!!

  • They make sprays you can use, but also use a topical like Advantix on your dog!
