I recently moved to a new place and the yard has alot of fleas in it. I have giving him the monthly drops you can put on their necks and that didnt help. I have giving him a bath with flea shampoo and now he sill has fleas and his skin seems to be breakin out and he's leavin marks when he stratches himself.

Is there something out there that wont cause irration to his skin and keep the fleas off him????

It WILL NOT MATTER what you treat your dog with if you do not treat the yard!!!!! Get an exterminator out there and treat the yard!!!! You will have to kill the cycle, not just adults but larvae as well. It takes a while but just treating the dog will never work!

I spray my yard and home with Demon WP. I put 2 pouches in my 1 gal. sprayer with water and spray my yard. Then I put 1 pouch in 1 gal. to spray inside my home. I live in Florida and the fleas are terrible, yet I never have a problem. I do this twice a year. I use nothing on my dogs. I just do the yard and home.

One cup of white vinegar mixed with two cups of water and 5 drops of dawn soup...makes a flea killing shampoo.

Get a crap load of salt and sprinkle some of the dog bed, all along the walls, around your bed and under the fitted sheet, all over carpets windows, door ways.

make sure your grass stays as low as possible, and no leaf left behind.
Fleas like dark wet places when not on a human or animal body. Just because you sprayed something, doesnt mean it killed them.

Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Every time you vacuum pull out a new trash back and dump it in there and tigh it off quickly. Make sure there are no holes in the bags, other wise you are just wasting your time.
