Do fleas in the yard die in the winter?



I am sick of our lab bringing these motherfrickers in. No flea medicine will work.

They die here during the winter months but then again it gets to 30-50 degrees below zero with the wind chills during those months where I live.

Have you tried spraying the yard?

For another option, 1 clove of garlic per 50 lbs of canine weight is an effective remedy against fleas. I bake homemade treats and put fresh garlic in them. Even though vets say a dog can easily take 1 clove per 50 lbs of weight, I use about 1 clove per batch of cookies and they only get one or two cookies out of 12+ at a time. I have had little trouble with fleas. If you use garlic, do NOT overdose as it can be toxic in high quantities.

If you go to a pest control store that sells chemicals they sell a bag of spreadable pesticide granuals. After you cut your grass use a fertilizer spreader to disperse. That shite knocked out my gf's yard in no time. That and the same brand makes a spray that knocks the fleas off the dog immediately. Call and pest control store and they'll know.

If you have access to some pesticides, spray the yard. You'll have to do it 3 or 4 times, but you won't have any problems after that.

If you know a chemical salesman, just ask if what you need to do and he'll help you and may just give you enough to get the job done or sell it to you cheap.

I got my dogs dipped and while they were out, I sprayed the yard and replaced their beds. Of course if the fleas are in your house, then it won't make a difference. They'll still be there.

I have two dogs and have yet to have a single problem with fleas or ticks. I spray my yard year round with this stuff. I can't remember the last time I found a flea or tick on my dogs. I have a big back yard with lots of big landscape. It works great on mosquitoes too


Spray your yard

Label

Try TeaTree shampoo. Should help a good deal.
