Fleas

All adult Fleas are parasitic, living on warm-blooded animals. The females lay their eggs after feeding on blood.

Female Fleas can live up to two years during which they can lay up to 1000 eggs. The eggs drop onto the floor.

After several days the eggs will develop into larvae. When fully developed the adult waits within this until it detects the vibrations caused by a potential host.

Only then does it emerge. The complete life cycle takes about a month in the summer.

Problems Caused by Fleas
