Or at least, those are the traits that come to mind when you hear the word “flea”.

And, indeed, those traits are often the result of fleas being flea-like.

If you don’t like to see a fleas in your garden, then don’t try to tackle them by any means, even with the help of the right tool. 

Here are some of the things to keep in mind when trying to spot fleas and how to prevent them from becoming a problem in your backyard. 

How to Spot Fleas in a Garden First, a fleamish garden can be dangerous for your pets.

In fact, the Australian Fleas and Tick Prevention Strategy recommends that you do not allow pets to be outdoors. 

You can avoid the possibility of flea infestations by keeping the house dry, using a pest control service and not allowing pets to touch food or drink surfaces. 

In addition, it’s recommended to keep your garden clean and tidy and make sure pets are not allowed to leave any food, drink or other food-containing items on the lawn. 

Also, it is advisable to keep the pet’s cage clean, as fleas can get into the pet cage. 

There are a number of measures you can take to keep pets and gardeners safe from fleas.

If there is a problem, it could be that the fleas have returned to the garden.

It’s important to do your research and look for signs of a problem before making any drastic decisions. 

If you do notice fleas on your pet’s face or body, the best option is to take them to the vet. 

The pet should be seen by a veterinary specialist, who will rule out other possible causes of the problem. 

Another option is for you to take the pet to a pet clinic or groomer.

This is a professional and trained service which will look after your pet, ensure it is in good condition and treat any fleas which have returned. 

Be aware, though, that if you are having a problem with a fleabite, it may not be a good idea to contact your vet if you suspect it to be a fleay.

 You could be unwittingly causing fleas to return to your garden or gardeners to their yard.

You can make a positive contribution to the prevention of fleabites by avoiding contact with pet droppings. 

When in doubt, seek the advice of your vet.
