What are Fleas?

Fleas are tiny, wingless insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Adult fleas size range from 2-4mm long, are oval-shaped, and reddish-brown in color. They have slim bodies covered in hard plates, allowing them to move easily through fur and hair. Their powerful hind legs enable them to jump incredible distances.

They go through a life cycle of egg, larva, pupa, and adult. This cycle can take 2 weeks to 8 months depending on conditions. Adult lay eggs that fall off the host into carpets, linens, and soil. The larvae hatch, feed on organic debris, then spin a cocoon to pupate. The pupae remain dormant until detecting host vibrations, warmth, and carbon dioxide before emerging.

Flea bites cause itchy red bumps and can transmit deadly diseases like typhus and tapeworms to pets and humans. Severe infestations may lead to anemia in animals from blood loss. They thrive in warm, humid environments.

Fleas are attracted to body warmth, movement, and exhaled carbon dioxide. They use their spiny legs to crawl through fur to reach bare skin for feeding.

Commonly found in homes with pets, but can be brought in by rodents too. Outdoors, larvae develop in shaded areas with organic matter like soil or lawn debris.

What is The Best Treatment For Fleas?

What is The Best Treatment For Fleas?

When it comes to the best chemical treatments, a combination of Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) and adulticides is often most effective. IGRs, like pyriproxyfen and methoprene, disrupt their cycle, while adulticides, such as fipronil, permethrin, and imidacloprid, kill grown fleas. These can be found in spot-on treatments for pets, sprays, and foggers.

Professional pest control services can also apply powerful residual insecticide sprays for effective flea removal. Always choose products designed for the specific use, follow label instructions carefully, and ensure they are safe for use around children and pets.

For the best results, use pesticides alongside organic methods like vacuuming and washing bedding. Consult with a vet or pest control professional to know the most suitable plan for your situation.
