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.

    How do fleas reproduce?

    A:

    The way fleas reproduce depends on their species and environmental conditions, states "Flea Control: How to Get Rid of Fleas Naturally." For example, the water flea reproduces asexually under normal conditions. These fleas only produce females until abnormal conditions, such as overcrowding or a limited food supply, cause them to asexually produce only males. The male fleas then mate with the females to continue reproduction until conditions change again.
