Full Answer

Fleas enjoy living in dark and moist areas, which makes grass the perfect environment for dwelling. One way to eliminate fleas is by using cedar chips. Sprinkling cedar chips around the yard discourages fleas from living in the area because they do not like the smell. Certain people find that sprinkling borax soap around the lawn can also help get rid of fleas. While borax soap is harmless, it can irritate pets with sensitive skin.
