In addition to itchy bites, fleas can transmit diseases and possibly affect you and your pet’s health if they are not controlled. Fleas feed on the skin of animals all over the world.
Female fleas can lay 30-50 eggs per day on their host and many of the eggs can fall off of the pet and end up in the carpet, furniture, pet bedding, or other locations. They hatch into larvae in about a week. After feeding on dried blood left behind by the adults, the larvae spin a cocoon and change into adults. That is why it’s important to focus on both the pet and the living environment when controlling fleas.
