Fleas are parasites. Adult female fleas must ingest a blood meal before they can lay eggs. Eggs fall from the host animal and collect on the surface below. This is usually where the animal spends most of its time, such as in a bed or nest.

Flea control consists of a combination of hygiene and pesticide applications. You can also look for the fleas pest control services via https://www.presidiopestmanagement.com/services/fleas-ticks/.

Larvae feed on casts of dead skin from animals and dried blood waste. When ripe, they attack the cocoon. If the conditions are right, the pupae can hatch in as little as a week. The entire life cycle can be completed in about two weeks under optimal conditions.

Careful shampooing of pets removes dry blood and most of the dead skin that serves as a food source for developing larvae. Shampooing pets with flea shampoo can kill adults in animals.

Removing and completely cleaning pet bedding and resting areas removes many eggs, larvae, and food sources for the new population. Applying pesticides in areas where pets spend most of their time leads to an immediate reduction in the flea population. It is usually good to use growth regulators to prevent new flea larvae from developing.

Good hygiene is the key to long-term flea control. If you have more than one pet, repair becomes even more important. The more pets you have, the more effort you will need to keep clean and keep pets "flea-free" in your home.
