The Life Cycle of the Flea

Each female can lay up to 50 eggs per day. Eggs have a polished surface and fall off the pet onto the carpet, the bedding, or wherever the pet goes.
If it’s warm, the eggs can hatch into larvae within 3 days. The larvae feed on dead human or animal skin in the carpet, or faeces from the adult flea, as this is rich in undigested blood. Once fully fed, the flea larvae move away from the light, deep into carpets, furnishings or under skirting boards.

Finding Fleas in your Home

95% of fleas live in household furnishings
Treat your house with a good quality flea spray to kill fleas and prevent any future flea infestations.
Fleas thrive in warm conditions
Warm conditions are great for fleas and central heating can ensure perfect conditions in a house all year round.

Fleas live in hard to reach places

Pupa and the young flea contained within it are found deep within carpet fabric, making them hard to reach. Use a household flea spray or powder to keep flea infestations at bay.

Clean your pets living area
 

Fleas are as equally at home in a clean house as a dirty one, although regular vacuuming of your pets living area will help reduce the likelihood of an infestation.

Flea infestations are mostly invisible

Flea infestations are hard to spot as they shelter under furniture and in cracks and crevices around your pets living environment, making them hard to reach by vacuuming alone. Use a household flea spray and focus on the areas around your pets living area.

Fleas can thrive outside too!

In warm, humid conditions, fleas can survive outside in your garden, meaning your pets can pick up fleas outside and bring the infestation into your home!

How do I know if my pet has fleas?

Scratching & Over grooming
Clear indications of a flea infestation are when the cat or dog is constantly scratching him/herself and over grooming.

Where to Check

The best places to check to see if your pet is infested with fleas are the waist, the neck, behind the ears and the 'armpits' .  These places are the warmest and fleas will often gather in such areas.

Our Simple Paper Test

Stand your pet on a damp piece of newspaper and comb through their coat. If they have fleas, tiny specks of flea dirt will fall onto the paper and absorb the moisture, forming pink halos around them. <
