I have a dog and now I have fleas in my backyard. Can I use bleach in my yard to get rid of the fleas?

An exterminator told an aquaintence of mine about using bleach years ago. As I understand, bleach works to kill ticks but not fleas. I'm not sure why.

Bleach can be harmful to pets if they walk in an area treated with bleach and then lick their paws, ingesting some of it.
