Pet owners know when a flea infestation hits because dogs and cats show visible signs of irritation. Flea bites seem to appear overnight on children and on exposed areas like feet and legs.
Surprisingly adult fleas make up just 5 percent of the flea population in the home, so the Egg, Larvae and Pupae stage amount to 95 percent of the flea population active in your the home or business.
Once adult fleas are discovered, the flea cycle is in full swing and immediate treatment is necessary to eliminate the adult fleas from hatching more eggs, continuing their life cycle. Over 400 eggs can hatch in just 2-3 weeks!
Businesses are also prone to flea infestations as people can carry them indoors, wind, dust and foot traffic all make a business vulnerable to insect infestations.
