Lawn Flea Control: Integrated Pest Management

If you’re in search of an integrated treatment for lawn flea control where your pets and family play, read on for what you need to know! 

You don’t want an infestation of fleas, inside or outside your home. If your furry companion spends a lot of time outdoors, it’s time to consider lawn flea control. Fleas can survive happily outside waiting for an animal host to latch on to, so it’s not just inside your house you need to keep free from fleas. 

It’s not uncommon to experience outbreaks of mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks in the Bergen County area. Here at Borst Landscape & Design, we can help control these pests in your landscape with our organic treatments throughout the summer. Our Organic Mosquito, Flea & Tick Spray is the best solution for safer lawn flea control. With a schedule of 6 applications through the season, your backyard is sure to be free of these disease-carrying pests.

Fleas are trouble

Flea bites aren’t just a nuisance. They are itchy and uncomfortable for you and your pet alike, and they can get irritated and even infected when scratched. Plus, fleas can carry serious diseases and pathogens. 

Fleas prefer moist, shady, cool environments and can infest shady plants like shrubs and trees. Plus fleas, like ticks and mosquitoes, like to breed in piles of leaves. And they can take over doghouses and outdoor furniture. This means your yard may be the perfect place for them to breed and thrive.

You need to stop fleas before you have an infestation, indoors or outside, with lawn flea control. But you are right to be concerned about the serious effect of pesticides and synthetic chemicals on the ones you love. So, how do you get started?

Integrated pest management for lawn flea control

One of the easiest and most important ways to prevent fleas in your yard is to do a cleanup – or better yet, have the professionals at Borst provide a thorough cleanup as part of your organic lawn care services

Mow your grass short (but not too short for the plants to thrive) so there’s nowhere for fleas to hide, and remove weeds and any debris. Clean up wood or rock piles, and clear out piles of leaves. Fleas like moisture, so it’s a good idea to get rid of any standing water and clean out birdbaths. A thorough yard cleaning is the first step to lawn flea control and it will help keep mosquitoes and ticks at bay as well. 

Additionally, a clean, debris-free yard creates a clean-slate for your organic lawn flea control treatment to take effect.
