What to Understand About Flea Infestations

Usually, fleas hitch a ride on an outdoor cat or dog’s fur to get into your home, which is why pets are the number one cause of flea issues. However, pets aren’t their only mode of entry. They can use secondhand furniture, clothing, and even humans to travel into the house. No matter how they arrive, they quickly make themselves at home once they’re there.

  • Fleas lay eggs on pet fur or bedding, and the eggs fall onto the floor or surrounding furniture.
  • Fleas are prolific breeders. Some can lay up to 500 eggs in a matter of months.
  • Anywhere between one to 12 days after fleas lay their eggs, the eggs hatch into larvae.
  • The larvae only take around one to two weeks to hatch, and then the process repeats.
  • Fleas feed on blood from their hosts. While they don’t typically feed on humans, they can.
