Fleas Insecticide

Siphonaptera spp. Insecticide

Description of Fleas (Siphonaptera spp.):
Most people believe fleas to be a common pest in the home, but they are also a common pest in the lawn. Your dog or cat is susceptible to picking them up and carrying them inside, on top of receiving nasty little bites. If you're opting for a chemical solution, be sure to know what's safe for your pets. Read the label to determine when it's safe to go back on the lawn.
