Horticulture Questions and Answers

How can I conrol fleas in my yard?

Fleas in a lawn are most frequently traced to pets in the area. Consequently, the 1st line of control is to locate the pets and treat the pets. Infested bedding materials should be disposed of, and the area around where the pet sleeps thoroughly cleaned. Tick and flea collars will help prevent further outbreaks.

Outdoors, the infested lawn area can be treated with an appropriately labeled insecticide which contains Malathion or Sevin. Follow label directions for safe application.
