Collection: Pests - Sand Fleas

Sand Fleas

Sand Fleas, also known as No-see-ems, are one of the most annoying pests EVER!  The perfect weather when you want to be outside is when these practically invisible monsters start biting you.  Their bites are an unmistakable ‘pinch’ and you can understand why they are called “Flying Teeth”. 

Treatment for Sand Fleas for you personally:

Materials Needed:

Greenbug for People/Pets

  1. Sand Fleas are controlled using Greenbug for People/Pets. Do not dilute. 
  2. Apply evenly on exposed skin by spraying into hands and then rub on skin making sure ALL skin surfaces are covered.
  3. Apply on hair like a light coating of hairspray. (They love to burrow in hair!)
  4. Or you can spray directly on the skin from about 2 – 6 inches away rotating arms and legs while spraying.
  5. Spray into hands to apply on face.
  6. May need multiple re-applications especially when you are active or perspiring.
  7. Once you apply the Greenbug for People/Pets, the Sand Fleas will still hover near you - but they will not land or bite as they are drawn to your carbon dioxide when you breathe.

    Treatment for Sand Fleas, Outside:

    Many times you plan outdoor events only to be miserable because of the dreaded Sand Fleas. Well, suffer no more!

    Materials Needed:

    Greenbug Ready to Use or

    Greenbug Concentrate properly diluted

    Hand, Pump, Backpack or Hose-end Sprayer to apply 

    1. Determine the boundaries of what you want free of Sand Fleas as you will be treating that area. (The key behind Sand Flea control is making sure they do not nest anywhere near where you want to be.)
    2. Fill the sprayer and fill with Greenbug Ready to Use or properly diluted Greenbug Concentrate.
    3. Spray the entire area on Day 1, Day 3, Day 6, Day 10 and the morning of the Day 15. You have now established a barrier of control.
    4. To maintain that barrier, spray once a week for several weeks. After that, you may begin to stretch out the time between applications up to once every three weeks.
    5. Please note - it is not reasonable to expect a Sand Flea-free area if you spray just once or just the day before an event.  That is because Greenbug is a natural product (not synthetic) and the Greenbug barrier must be built up and created.  But once the barrier is intact, you only need to apply the minimum amount of Greenbug to maintain that barrier.
