How does your product work on fleas and their stages around the outside of the house and dog run?


Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf - Granules works well at killing adult fleas. However, the Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turf - Granules does not have an IGR (insect growth regulator) to stop the reproductive cycle. Fleas have a rapid life cycle and reproduce very quickly and that is why an IGR is such an important component of a flea control treatment. For outdoor flea treatments we would recommend using the Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit. The kit includes 1 pint of Onslaught Insecticide and 1 x 4 oz. bottle of Martins IGR to stop flea growth and reproduction.  We've included these products because they are easy to use, effective, and safe to use in your yard and inside the home. Both products are concentrated and need to be mixed with water before use.  You can apply the mixed solution with a pressurized hand-held sprayer or a hose-end sprayer.  This kit provides enough product to cover a typical yard (1/4 to 1/2 acre).
