Hey Judith! Fleas are fairly resilient and although they are less active during colder weather, it won’t kill them in most situations. However, if you really want a number, I would say that after a couple hard freezes its unlikely that there will be many fleas around. I highly recommend actually treating your garden (with lime, etc.) for fleas to get rid of them once and for all so that you can let your dogs out whenever they want.
does anyone know how to get rid of a flea infestation in your back yard? I bought a yard spray by ortho and it worked for my front yard but my back yard has no grass, it’s mostly dirt and it didn’t work. my dog is an outside dog so i cant bring him in. I have him on our patio area and I have sealed off access to the yard. The fleas stay in the dirt area. Everyday I spray raid where the dirt and patio meet so they haven’t cross over. Raid seems to be the only thing that kills them within 45 seconds. I’m looking for a spray that will get rid of the fleas fast.
