Some very encouraging results in biological control of fleas can
be achieved by using insect/arthropod parasitic nematode worms
(Heterorhabditis spp. & Steinernema spp.).  These are available
commercially, and some even target the control of fleas specifically.
For more information about these nematodes, check out-
