Hi friends, I'm Mark Govan here with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida and people want to know, does malathion kill fleas? Well absolutely. Malathion is a great product to use on the exterior side of your home. Now you don't want to use it inside the house for flea control, there's a lot better products for that. However, outside the home wherever your pet may lay, if it lays underneath a favorite bush or if you have a pet home or a doghouse outside the house, that's a great place to go ahead and treat with malathion. Also, remember your ornamental plants and hedges. If you want to spray those with malathion up over the top, read the label first, but after you read the label, you can mix that with water and spray your ornamental plants and your lawn areas around the home and that will help keep your fleas at a safe number. Remember, flea control outside the home with malathion is a good thing, but make sure you treat inside the home as well with another product that's labeled for inside the home use and vacuum your rugs on a regular basis. All of these things help keep the fleas down to a livable number or in fact sometimes it can help eliminate fleas from your home. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida helping keep you flea free.
