Fleas are a pest you will find indoors as well as out in your yard. They hop on and hitch a ride feeding on the blood of your pet.
Once fed, the flea will lay hundreds of eggs (50 per day) that fall off everywhere your pet goes. The egg hatch into a larvae then go through the pupa stage, the only time that they are fully protected from the effects of pesticides. The pupa will remain stagnant until stimulated by something walking past them. This is what can typically happen if your pet is removed from the house when you go on vacation- you return home to hundreds of fleas everywhere!)
Frequent vacuuming will remove these pests and can prevent a full-blown infestation. Check with your veterinarian to see what he or she recommends for protecting your pet.
Treatment of the home is typically needed and our success rate usually requires only one treatment. Yes, you will see fleas after treatment due to hatching pupa, but the cycle will be unable to continue.
