Once fleas invade your outdoor spaces, it’s generally just a matter of time before they creep into your home. At Mosquito Hunters™, we utilize top-notch flea control treatments to effectively address flea infestations in the Coralville, IA area and prevent them from coming back. And though our team has your outdoor area covered, there are still preventative measures you can take to prevent indoor infestations. However, these preventative steps target fleas at different stages of their lifecycle, which is why it’s important to understand them.
The Stages of Flea Development
1. Flea Eggs
Flea eggs account for around half of the fleas in an average infestation. Adult fleas can lay up to around 40 eggs per day, which is why checking your pets’ fur for these pests on a regular basis is a crucial part of preventing indoor infestations.
2. Flea Larvae
Flea larvae, which make up around a third of an average population, spend their days feeding on pre-digested blood and other organic matter. Getting your pets on an anti-flea program is an effective way to fight larvae, as these treatments will eliminate eggs and prevent them from hatching in the first place.
3. Flea Pupae
Flea pupae develop into adults inside their cocoons, which take around 5-20 days to construct. These cocoons have a sticky coating and are often embedded deep within rugs and carpets. Vacuuming flea pupae away can provide limited results. To eliminate indoor fleas at this stage, it’s best to use a steam cleaner.
4. Adult Fleas
Once flea pupae are fully developed, and a potential meal walks by, fleas will emerge from their cocoons as adults and start the cycle all over. They sense prey by their body height, the carbon dioxide they release when breathing, and the vibrations made by their footsteps.
