Fleas are a nuisance that no one wants to discover in their yard. Unfortunately, these biting pests are common here in Michigan, so if they're on your property, you'll want to take some steps to tackle this issue as soon as possible. First, you'll want to bathe and treat your pets to keep fleas from becoming too comfortable on your furry friends. Next, you'll want to regularly mow your grass and keep it free of debris to reduce the places for them to hide. Finally, you'll want to contact pros and schedule flea control treatments to eliminate the infestation and ensure they stay off your yard!

Bathe and treat your pets if you discover fleas in your yard!

Fleas can leave your pets itching endlessly, causing discomfort and irritation. Because of this, if you discover these pests in your yard, you'll want to bathe them with soap and water immediately. You'll also want to use a flea comb to brush through their fur and ensure you get all the fleas off them. Then, it's crucial to treat them, whether with a flea and tick collar, an ingestible, or a liquid, to protect them from these biting pests.

Regularly Mow Your Grass & Keep It Free of Debris to Reduce the Flea Population

Another step you'll want to take once you've found fleas in your yard is to mow your grass regularly and keep it free of debris. Tall grass provides an ideal hiding spot for these pests, offering shade and protection from predators and the elements. Similarly, built-up debris creates dark and moist conditions and is also the perfect shelter, which attracts fleas. You can drastically reduce the flea population and give them fewer reasons to inhabit your property when you maintain a well-mowed lawn and a debris-free yard.

Schedule professional flea control treatments to combat the fleas in your yard.

Fleas infest quickly and are challenging to eliminate, so you'll want to go the extra mile to tackle those in your yard. The best way to do this is by scheduling professional flea control treatments. When you do, pros will come out to your property and administer products proven to be highly effective against these pests. They'll spray your entire yard, plus areas prone to harborage, such as landscape beds, tall grass, and underneath decks, to combat any fleas residing there and provide lasting protection to keep them off your property. Not only that, but pros will return to reapply several times throughout the active flea season to ensure these biting pests don't cause problems for you and your furry friends again!

Active flea season here in Michigan starts in May and lasts through August.
