You're right, Scott's Bonus and Bonus Plus have been recalled by the company. Vigoro 3 in 1 has also been pulled from the market so I am at a loss to suggest a replacement. However, you can fertilize your dichondra every two months with Marathon All Season Dichondra fertilizer. As for the fleas, you might try applying beneficial nematodes to the soil to destroy the larval stage, reducing root feeding and helping to prevent the next generation of adults from emerging. Diatomaceous earth can be dusted over plants to control the number of feeding adults. Hope this helps!
