I need a flea treatment for the yard that will not hurt, bees, rabbits, my lawn or other beneficial insects

RE: kill fleas, not bees?

Fleas are nest parasites rather than scattered throughout the yard.

The key to flea management is your pets -- comb them often to monitor the flea levels and to remove what you find by flicking into soapy water.
-- Also, use an approved anti-flea product on your pet which you've obtained from your vet
-- plus wash the pets' bedding on regular basis
-- and vacuum frequently.
