Did you know this is the time of year those nasty little itchy pests, fleas start breeding? It is very difficult to get rid of fleas as they progress through a lifecycle in stages that see it grow from an egg, into larvae, then pupae before finally the blood-sucking adults that reproduce at an exponential rate. The female fleas are able to lay up to 500 eggs in their lifetime other in their surrounding environment or on an unsuspecting host.

Usually, that host is your pet who has caught a flea from another animal that is infested or from being in an environment that is hosting fleas whilst out of your home. There are a couple of tell-tale signs of a flea infestation, but the most noticeable, of course is excessive scratching. Other symptoms can include irritated, red skin, hair loss and reddened patches of skin.

These indications should be treated immediately before the fleas are able to lay more eggs and therefore populate more of your environment. Of course, there are a number of DIY options that instruct you how to get rid of fleas, but none of them are guaranteed to completely stop the flea’s lifecycle in its tracks.
