Hookworms and roundworms are common pet parasites. If your pet harbors these parasites, he will deposit their eggs in your yard. To effectively kill hookworms and roundworms in your yard, first treat the lawn and then treat your pets. Household pets should be checked for roundworms and hookworms by a veterinarian at least once a year and put on preventative medication.
Pick up all the animal feces from your lawn. Tightly bag and throw away the feces and wash the tools that came in contact with the feces.
Cut your grass and remove the clippings. Do not compost the clippings, throw them away. They may harbor hookworm and roundworm eggs.
Sprinkle 10 pounds of sodium borate per 100 square feet of your lawn.
Rake the lawn to distribute the sodium borate.
Prevent the spread of hookworms and roundworms. Only allow your pet to use one area of the lawn to defecate. Then, clean up waste as soon as it is deposited to prevent the spread of the eggs.
