I have read through all 127 threads (13 pages) posted to date on the subject but nobody has mentioned a common known outdoor cure for fleas here in Australia being lime powder sold where ever you buy cement powder.
We live in a bad flea infested area, even households without pets have these bloody fleas. If walked under our house you would have thousands of fleas over you within seconds. So bad they looked like you were wearing black socks even though you are bare foot.
I spread lime powder under our house and it killed or drove away the fleas although many came up though the floor boards and we had to flea-bomb the house.
This worked for a couple of years but the area is so bad that over time more fleas have taken their place. However it was a much cheaper alternative to all of the chemicals I had previously bought from the farmer's produce place on a regular basis.

Just wondered why lime hasn't been mentioned in this subject at all. I hope it helps.

Probably food grade diatomaceous earth would help you. Do research. I believe Amazon has it. Great on worms.
