Fleas can be notoriously difficult to eradicate and usually people will try to do this themselves. Unfortunatley DIY purchased flea killers are not going to solve your problem as its important to understand the flea life cycle and implement a strategy to eradicate them for good. For example, adult fleas, the ones biting, are only 5% of the flea population in your home.

Just talking about fleas makes most peoples skin crawl and itch! The bites are usually a tiny red spot surrounded by a reddish area and they do itch like crazy.

Adult fleas are a parasite, living of warm blooded animals. They lay eggs, 100’s of them, the eggs turn into larvae that actually feed on the excretement of the adult fleas. The larvae spin cocoons and pupate. From the cocoon an adult will emerge and the cycle goes around and around.

So, you see, there is a lot going on behing the scenes in the flea world.
