How We Prevent a Flea and Tick Problem
Since Rita and I know that fleas and ticks can hideout in our lawn, we protect ourselves and our cat by spreading Ortho Bug-B-Gon MAX Insect Killer granules on our lawn. (This is in addition to the flea and tick treatment our cat gets.) The extra bonus is that this single lawn treatment not only kills fleas and ticks for up to 3 months, but also knocks out ants, chiggers and 100 other insects, many of which can cause our lawn to thin and turn brown in summer. I kept Dudley, our cat, inside while spreading. I then gave the lawn a good watering to activate the kill. Once the lawn was dry we let Dudley back outside.
