Product Description

Flea-Away is our number one recommended product for killing fleas and other pests in an environmentally friendly, non-chemical fashion. It consists solely of beneficial nematodes--microscopic predatory worms that hunt down and kill pesky insects, but are safe for people, pets, plants and beneficial insects!

In addition to controlling flea larvae and pupae, Flea-Away will control Flea Larvae/Pupae, Annual Bluegrass Weevils, Armyworms, Artichoke Plume Moth Larvae, Banana Moth Larvae, Banana Root Borers, Chinch Bugs, Clearwing Borers, Codling Moth Larvae, Cranberry Girdlers, Cutworms, Giant Palmetto Weevils, Iris Borers, Mint Flea Beetles, Mint Root Borers, Mole Crickets, Navel Orange Worms, Root Weevils, Rotten Sugarcane Borers, Shore Flies, Sod Webworms and more! Since Flea-Away Nematodes kill pests at the larval and pupa stages, they'll prevent future pest populations once the adults die off.

Our expert entomologists have done careful evaluations of their effectiveness in our research garden. Application rates vary depending on the type of pest in need of control, but in general for flea larvae/pupae, our entomologists recommend one package of 5 million nematodes to spot treat 300 sq. ft. of lawn and one package of 10 million nematodes to spot treat 1000 sq. ft. of lawn. Concentrate application in areas that pets frequent, shaded areas, under porches and around structures. Only infested areas need to be spot treated; there is no need to treat non-infested areas.

Store Flea-Away in the refrigerator, then remove and let it come to room temperature before mixing and applying to the soil. Nematodes can be applied anytime the soil is not frozen, but become active at soil temperatures of 68 degrees or above. Early morning or evening applications are ideal, and the area to be treated should be watered before application and then watered again after application. Applying Flea-Away during a gentle rainfall is ideal. Nematodes are most active at controlling grubs in late summer to early fall. You'll only need one application per year (two, if your area suffers from long droughts).
