Superior Flea Treatments
They are little, ranging approximately 2.5 mm long and do not include wings, but are professional jumpers. They are reddish brown and glossy, with extremely tiny hairs compressed to make movement through fur much easier. If you were to look closely you would see the extremely small hairs all over their body, in addition to their special mouth parts that enable them to feed. They will feast upon a host (individual or animal) and their larvae will consume organic matter, including their feces, up until it develops.
Thankfully, they will not attach their eggs to a host, however they will attach their eggs to ground coverings and areas; your carpeting, rugs, furnishings upholstery, and so on.
They do not choose people as hosts. They actually prefer animals as their host. If humans are their only host they will have a tough time populating; and surviving. It’s when you have animals that an invasion has more chance of taking place and lasting until you treat the home. When they are found in the house, there is a big chance they’re also in your yard.
How Infestations Start
Females do not attach their eggs to a host. This does not mean they will not lay their eggs on a host. When this takes place, the eggs will ultimately fall from the host and onto whatever surface is below. Their eggs begin hatching within 12 days. Their larvae feasts upon natural and organic matter until they are older and will stay clear of light.
They start going into the pupal stage within 18 days and throughout this phase construct what resembles a cocoon around themselves. Problems will usually develop where there are animals around. If you take action against this problem right away, you can definitely eliminate them in just one or two treatments. Unfortunately, they are like many other pests. If you wait too long to treat them, it can take numerous treatments (additional costs) to get them under control. In addition, if you have pets, they have to be dealt with as well. Protecting your pets from fleas year-round is the best way to prevent this problem.
