Flea Quick Facts
Fleas need to eat frequently, as often as once every 5 minutes.
Adult fleas feed, mate and begin laying eggs approximately 36 hours after hatching
Cycle from egg to adult usually takes about 3-6 weeks but can take longer
While adult fleas are the most noticeable part of an infestation, they are only about 5% of the total fleas present
It can take 6 weeks or longer to get all the fleas hatched out of their pupae
Fleas are triggered to hatch by warmth, vibration and carbon dioxide.
Often owners will see fleas reappear about 3-4 weeks after the application as this is when the largest number of flea pupae (from eggs laid by the fleas killed 3-4 weeks earlier) are ready to hatch
Sprays may kill eggs and/or larvae but are often not effective against fleas when they are inside the pupae.

You’ll start when the weather gets warmer. When your work schedule eases up a bit and you have more time. When the kids go back to school. And you want to make sure she’s had all her shots first, right? There will be plenty of time for socializing later.

Wrong.
