posted this on Feb 19, 2018

Fleas – the tiny, flightless creatures can make a pet’s life a misery; and a human being’s too. The mere utterance of the word “fleas” makes the body go all itchy and scratchy.

Fleas are like a contagious disease that can spread and exist in every nook and corner of your home- from the bed and carpet of your room to lawn furniture of your yard.

That’s right, yard too!

If you thought ridding the house of fleas was enough, then think twice, because these wingless insects get into your pet through the yard and into your home. Yes, the yard is the root of the problem!

But you don’t have to worry because you can use a yard flea spray to combat them.  Learn how you can stop them from turning your peaceful lawn into a jungle!

How to Know if Your Yard is Plagued with Fleas?

Before jumping down to find solutions to rid your yard of fleas, it is imperative to know first if your yard has fleas or not.

Following are some ways to determine whether the flea situation is serious, or not:

 

  1. Observe your Pet’s Behavior

Since fleas affect your pets first, it is important to first assess the pet’s behavior.

It could be possible that your pet is scratching excessively. If it is doing so, then go ahead and examine its fur. Most of the times infested animals lose excessive amounts of fur and their skins turn red. If that is what you notice in your pet, then afraid to say, some serious fleas are residing on your pet’s bodies.

Since cats and dogs are popular pet animals, there are particular areas where you can look for insects in their bodies. In case of dogs, mostly the fleas attack the hindquarter of the dog which includes their buttocks and back legs. While in case of cats, their heads and necks are the common targets.

What to look for?

If you are wondering what to look for when detecting fleas in your pet’s furry hair; look for thin, flat bodies that crawl through the animal’s furs. Their length is approximately 2.5mm and they have six long legs which help them take long jumps around the body, making pets go all itchy and scratchy.

 

  1. Flea Eggs

Fleas are very small. Imagine how tiny their eggs must be! Looking for flea eggs is difficult but they are the reason for the origin of fleas in your yard. Hence, it is important to kill them.

The flea eggs, larvae and pupae are more secretive and hidden in places where you may not have a clue. So, to find them, you can search for them in or under your lawn’s furniture, your pet’s bedding, lawn chair, cracks in the floor and rugs and carpets.

Unlike other parasites, flea eggs are not sticky and within one to twelve days, they turn into larvae which are ugly, white colored creatures that measure up to 3 to 5.2 mm in length.

 

  1. Walk Around the Yard with White Socks on

To ensure that your yard is not the source of flea infestation, wear white socks up to your calves and walk around places where your pet hangs around the most. The white socks will easily make the tiny, ugly creatures visible.

Remember that fleas love shady and cool places. You can easily find them among leaves and woody shrubs of your lawn. It is highly unlikely to find them is the open grass or sunny areas. So, hunt for the pest in the cathouse, kennel, patio, porch, fences and garden trees and flowers.
