A flea’s lifecycle

Fleas can be particularly persistent and can easily grow into a huge problem for your pet, your home and you. It’s important to know what products to use to not only get rid of adult fleas, but to kill fleas at each stage of the lifecycle to prevent re-infestation!

  1. Adult fleas: jump onto pets to feed. Females lay eggs, which results in lots more fleas!
  2. Flea eggs: fall off wherever your pet goes – this could be anywhere in the house, but particularly on their favourite sleeping spot…
  3. Flea larvae: flea eggs hatch into larvae in your pet’s bedding, carpets and soft furnishings.
  4. Flea pupae: lay dormant before hatching into fleas, which can be for up to 140 days until the right conditions arrive!

Did you know that just one female flea can lay up to 50 eggs a day? That means a single flea can easily infest your pet  and your home!

And they’re not just a gross, itchy nuisance. If left untreated, fleas, ticks and worm infestations can be potentially dangerous, not only for our pets, but for us too. 

But if you follow the correct tips and know when to treat and when to prevent, you can rid your home and your pets of fleas, ticks and worms once and for all.
