Why should granule based chemicals be used to supplement the flea applications?

Granule based chemicals are applied to outdoor lawn and living areas, slowly releasing the insecticide’s active ingredient. This will keep fleas and ticks out of your yard now, as well as in the future. The granules settle in quickly, limiting the amount of exposure you will have to the pesticide. After applying the pesticide, your yard will be safe for humans, animals, and also insects that are beneficial to the area. The granules will keep your outdoor living area inhabitable for your entire family.

By applying the granules to your yard, you are saving yourself from having to apply the expensive treatments to your pets. I know my dog always seems very sensitive to the flea treatments I apply directly to her skin and once the chemical has been applied, she seems extremely lethargic for some time after. I would be very happy to be offered an alternative to the expensive, monthly flea treatments that we rely on currently. There would also be a nice piece of mind that came with knowing the entire yard had been treated, so when other friends with pets and children come over to enjoy my outdoor space, I don’t have to worry that they might be picking up some sort of parasite from being in the area.

Ticks carry a multitude of serious diseases, and I would be very happy to know that I helped in keeping us all safe to enjoy the outdoors together. I don’t feel that the topical flea applications work very quickly either. I have been told, that if my pet currently has fleas, once I apply the medication, it can take up to 3 months for them to completely go away. Three months of applications. Three months of living with fleas in the house. Disgusting.
