    Default Flea/Mange treatments

    Beneficial Nematodes for Fleas

    By Lenna Allen, eHow Contributor , last updated October 21, 2011


    Fleas can be a real pest for your garden and crop, so it is important to find an effective method to get rid of fleas without any side effects on the environment. There are many ways to fight against flea infestations, one of the easiest and eco-friendliest solutions being beneficial nematodes. Beneficial nematodes are microscopic worms that attack fleas and infect them with bacteria, killing the insects rapidly. I've used this before on my lawn where I lived before and we never saw a flea again. Also this dip works for mange and fleas.
    It's called Happy Jack Kennel Dip

    It's that time of year and I notice lots of peeps having issue's
    Don't forget to keep up with monthly applications of flea and tick prevention. It really pays off.

    Thank you for that @Sherry! I am one having flea issues. The weird part is that I DO give trifexis!!! I guess they are just picking up more from the yard. Can't wait for the lawn guy to get here!

    We had mixed the microorganism with our water hose sprayed it on the yard, and they ate the flea eggs. lady bugs and everything else stayed alive

    Good luck with killing them dirty buggers, it's a bad year for insects of all kinds. we have lots of cases of west nile in my area.

    Thank you for the info Sherry. This has been the worst year I can remember for fleas with the past winter being so mild.

    Yes, we purchased it from a farm store, You could just as well order it on-line too.
    I know the Happy Jack Kennel Dip is not as easy to find as it used to be, I was at two farm stores yesterday, just looking around. I could not find it at either one.
    But I know how great the Happy Jack works. For fleas and mange. It comes in a brown bottle or it use too anyhow. And the formula is milky white in color. Good boarding kennels use this stuff to wash down their kennels. That's how I found out about it.

    I think anyone who has flea problems or mange should look into both products. @Twice yes , you just water it on the grass and the stuff really really works. Years ago, I had a devil of a time with those blood suckers. Once I found out what works, 15 years ago. I have not seen a flea since. Once you can get rid of them outside, in the house and on the dog, it's such a relief. Eco friendly

    Ooo I love this! I don't spray anything on anything around here...there's too many critters in my little urban food chain. Day Lilly Frog has DOUBLED in size since I first took his/her picture back in June. ha ha

    Where do you get these things? The nemotodes?

    Check out AGWAY if you have one near by, it's a farming type store. Or Key-AID another farm store, it's inexpensive too.
    Maybe you can find it on line too.
