Why You Should Get Rid Of Fleas

The fleas are a nightmare not only on the inhabitants but also on their pets. When a dog is unfortunately bitten, he scratches himself until he drives his owner crazy. But it also has many impacts on the animal’s health:

  • An infection
  • Hair loss
  • A flea allergy dermatitis 
  • Secondary skin inflammation

For humans, flea bites are usually located around the ankles and take the form of small red bumps that itch a lot. Lawn flea prevention is something to keep in mind when owning a beautiful house with a garden.

Proceed To Lawn Flea Prevention As Soon As Possible

Lawn flea prevention is more effective if the infestation is sooner detected. It is then easier to control them. Towards the end of May and June, insects are still in the nymph stage. There is no visible damage yet.

When the first symptoms begin to be visible, fleas are already in the adult stage. By August, without intervention, the damage is often irreversible. The lawn is unrecoverable and symptoms are all the more favored by the hot, dry climate.

At this stage, the best option remains reseeding. In the case of early detection, there are several methods that are effective:

  • Cultural
  • Biological
  • Chemical
