Fleas are a year-round problem



In addition to treating animals and inside of homes, it may be necessary to treat the outside environment. This can be done by spraying areas of the yard that are high in flea population.

“This includes shaded areas, under trees and bushes, in dog houses, under porches and decks," Diesel said.

Diesel said the best strategy against fleas is to practice year-round prevention.

“It is much easier to prevent fleas than to treat fleas,” she said.
