Fleas are very small pest that feed on blood. These pests have four stages of their lives. Often it helps to get professional help to get rid of fleas such as Dunedin Pest experts at Buggin Out Termite and Pest Control located in Largo,Florida.
Fleas are attracted to your pets like cats and dogs. The flea likes the warmth of the pet&rsquos body. The flea also likes the exhaling of your pet&rsquos carbon dioxide. Often the flea eggs are laid on the pet but falls off when the pet moves. Therefore where the pet spend most of their time is a place where the flea eggs are largely located.
The first of four stages of a flea&rsquos life are eggs. The two following stages are larvae and pupae. The last stage of flea life is adult. When you have infestation of fleas the eggs are probably around 50 percent of the entire flea population in your infested area. The adult fleas you may spot only represent five percent. Larvae are around 35 percent of the population and the 10 percent left are pupae
