Your best insecticide and IGR for outdoor flea control?

Been using Archer and Conquer but doesn't seem to be working this year. Would like something that I can use in the hose end sprayer at so much chemical per gallon of water rather than trying to calculate coverage per 1000 sq ft.


When treating for fleas outdoors it may require multiple applications. Please read the following article on how to treat for fleas outdoors to ensure you are following all the proper steps.

Outdoor Flea Control 

Archer IGR is one of the more favorable IGR"s to use outdoors because it holds up best in the outdoor elements.

Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator is an alternative that you can use. This product uses its two active ingredients: pyriproxyfen and novaluron, to stop the juvenile pests from growing into adults. It is able to be used in a hose end sprayer following the label instructions. Dilute spray solution/  1 oz. per gal. of water / Spray rate: 1 gal. per 1,500 ft
