Fleas - Outdoor Control
Exterminator Recommendations - Killing Fleas Outdoors
Prevention / Cure Existing Infestations: Bifen IT spray or Bifen LP granules depending on your preference.
- Use Bifen IT for flea control outside. Mix 1 oz per 2-4 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet of outside surface area to kill adult fleas and flea larvae. If larvae is present, use a higher volume of water to penetrate the soil.
- Use Bifen LP- 2.3-4.6 lbs per 1,000 square feet. Irrigate the area with water after application to release the insecticide.
- Use Tekko Pro IGR: Every 2 months during the warm season. Mix it 1 oz per gallon, per 1,500 sq ft. Tekko Pro IGR will prevent the larvae from proceeding to the pupae stage.
Starting at: $18.75Many customers use Bifen IT for mosquito control in their backyards. Mosquitoes feed on plant juices. You find them on the leaves of plants, bushes, and trees. Try to spray the underside of the leaves. Remember that Bifen IT is non-selective and will kill the good guys such as bees and butterflies so avoid spraying any flowering parts because that is where the bees go. We need to save the bees!!! The 3/4 gal size is the best value, but consider the one gal container because it has a tip and measurement device. The tip and measure makes life easier when mixing. Learn More
