Does the grass need to be dry before applying insect dust?

We have fleas in our yard and were told your insect dust would rid us of this problem, but the package does not say if we can apply if the grass is wet.

Answer:

We would not recommend applying dust outdoors. If the dust was to get wet, it would be useless and would have to continuously be applied again. Dust is meant to be applied indoors inside the wall voids.

For outdoor flea control, we would recommend using our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit. It comes with insecticide and an IGR (insect growth regulator). The IGR stops the fleas from reproducing. You will mix them together in a hand pump sprayer and broadcast the solution across your lawn. After 14 days, you will do a second treatment with the insecticide only. These products can also be used indoors as a broadcast as well.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
