Adult fleas use your pet as a host. They live and lay their eggs in the animal's coat and as the eggs begin to dry, they fall out of the coat and settle into the furnishings and carpet. Flea eggs become larvae as they hatch. Adult fleas help to feed the larvae using their feces. As the fecal matter, which contains blood, falls off the animal into the environment, the larvae feed on it, helping them develop into the next stage of their life cycle the next stage of the life cycle, the larvae spin themselves a cocoon, where they will lay in wait until a suitable host is available.
These cocoons are strong, and can resist pesticides. Once the host is identified, the young fleas leave the cocoon, and jump onto your pet in seconds. The cycle begins again, and the flea is biting your pet again within a few minutes.If you notice your pet scratching furiously and suspect fleas may be the culprit, there is an easy way you can check. Get a paper towel slightly wet and place your pet over top of it. Brush the pet's fur, letting fur and pet dander fall onto the paper towel. If dark spots are visible, and turn red, it could be the blood in flea feces as it dissolves.
By visiting your vet, flea presence can be confirmed. Once you know for sure, begin treating your pet and home. Carefully read all instructions and warnings on the product label as some can be dangerous if improperly used or administered to the wrong type of animal. Some chemicals can affect people and are unsafe for use around fish tanks. Be sure to follow all directions. Always ensure that your plan of attack involves your entire house, and any other areas your pet frequents such as the car or backyard. Vacuuming well before beginning can help to encourage the fleas to leave their cocoons, as the vibration works as a stimulant.
Once the fleas leave the cocoon, they are far more vulnerable to thecat flea treatment and chemicals, helping to ensure a successful result. Always remove and dispose of vacuum bags immediately.Making the effort to properly treat all areas will help to ensure your success. Keep in mind that repeated treatments can be necessary to totally break the life cycle and prevent re-infestation. Be patient and vigilant, and you will rid your pet and home of these pests.
