Flea infestations don’t happen overnight. In fact, they usually begin 6-8 weeks before you ever even notice a flea! That’s when your pet (or you) brings in a few fleas from outside. Once on your pet, fleas begin feeding and breeding and laying the groundwork for what you are seeing today. By the time you notice fleas on your pets, there can be thousands of flea eggs, larvae, and pupae right under your feet – ready to start an infestation in your house!
The highest number of flea eggs, larvae, and pupae will be found in the areas of the house where the pets spend most of their time, such as beds, furniture, etc. Even though fleas may be in your house, you may not be able to see them. The eggs are too small to see without magnification and the larvae migrate deep down into the carpets, furniture, or cracks in the floors away from the light.
