Flea infestations are more than a risk to your pets. Fleas can also attack you, leading to allergic reactions and a long list of other issues. And because of how quickly they can spread, it’s crucial to eliminate fleas as soon as they show up. By working with our team of pest control pros at Mosquito Hunters™, you can avoid the headaches that come with fighting fleas on your own. With our proven flea control, we protect our neighbors located all over the Mason, OH, area.
To understand what an infestation might look like, we’ll go through the stages of a flea’s lifecycle below. We’ll also highlight a few key preventative measures you can take to prevent these pests from creeping into your house and taking over.
The Stages of Flea Development
Let’s take a look at the four different stages in a flea’s lifecycle:
1. Flea Eggs
Fleas begin their lives as eggs. Adult fleas can lay up to approximately 40 eggs per day and lay them in bunches of around 20 right after feeding. Fleas will lay their eggs in the fur of their victims, which is why it’s important to check your pets regularly for these pests. Fleas make up around half of the fleas in an average household population.
2. Flea Larvae
Flea larvae generally make up approximately 35% of fleas in an average household, and they hatch after somewhere between two days and a few weeks. Because they hatch legless and blind, larvae will spend their days feeding on pre-digested blood before they start spinning their cocoons.
3. Flea Pupae
Flea cocoons are often hidden deep within carpeting and other fabrics, making them difficult to vacuum away. Steam cleaning your carpets is an effective method for eliminating pupae if you suspect they’re around.
4. Adult Fleas
Once adult fleas sense a meal is nearby, whether through increases in carbon dioxide or vibrations indicating steps, they’ll emerge from their cocoons and head toward their prey.
