Default How to comprehensively control fleas and mites?

Itís time for the fleas to be active, and I believe that no pet owner is facing such problems. Although I have done a lot of flea and locust control, I still found fleas on the dog bed today. What shocked me.

Well first of all I would treat the yard for fleas and I would sprinkle some Diatomaceous Earth (food grade):in the house and bedding. You can use it in the yard also. Wear a mask though as its very light and dusty and I would want to breathe in the dust. Google it for info and it must be food grade. Then put your dog on prevention, there are many out there, discuss it with your vet. I have used nextgard for 7 years now. My dogs never have a flea on them and with keeping the yard short they do not bring them in. I spray the yard once a year, its just easier for me and I keep the dogs off the first 24 hours. Many pest control companies will now do this for you too.
