Preventing fleas from ever populating is the best form
of flea control outside just as it is inside. The best, safest
and cheapest way to prevent fleas outside is to use Flea
Fix. IG Regulator is an IGR
(insect growth regulator). By using IG Regulator outside 3 times
a year the flea eggs and flea larvae are unable to mature into adult
biting fleas. A good time to use IG Regulator the first time is
April Fool's Day. Because IG Regulator is an insect hormone it has
no effect on non-target animals such as mammals, reptiles or
birds. A 4 oz. bottle of IG Regulator is $24.50, makes 4 gallons
and covers 6,000 sq. ft. It can be used inside the home also.
So you did not spray IG Regulator early enough and now you have adult fleas. The following pointers will help you in getting rid of biting fleas in your yard.
Use a hose end sprayer when using liquids. You
need a lot of volume to saturate the soil and a hand held pump up
sprayer is not adequate.
