Common questions…

Can fleas lay eggs in carpet?

Adult fleas lay eggs which hatch into larvae and get everywhere in carpets, between floorboards, in upholstery and in your pet’s bedding. So, you might think you’ve accomplished getting rid of fleas, only to find a new generation emerging days to weeks after you’ve started treating your pet so then your beloved pets flea problem will only start all over again.

Do fleas live in my bedding?

How Do Fleas Get in the Bed? Fleas are not usually found infesting a homeowner’s beds and bedding. Fleas that are observed in beds and bedding are most likely there only to take a blood meal or were perhaps dislodged from the animal if the pet is allowed to sleep in the same bed as the homeowner.

How long can fleas lay dormant?

A Flea pupa can remain dormant in this stage for up to six months as they wait patiently for the perfect time. Temporary hibernation allows these heat-loving parasites to survive through the chilly winter outside. It also makes it very difficult treat an infestation in a single round of treatment.

Do fleas die off?

Will a flea die without a host? Fleas are parasites; they need a regular supply of blood to survive. Adult fleas develop a dependency on the blood of their host, so yes, they will quickly perish should they be separated from them for a certain amount of time – this could be as short as a couple of days.

Where do fleas hide?

Cracks and other tight spaces are usually good hiding places for fleas and their cohort of eggs, larvae, and cocoons. If you can, use a vacuum with a bag you can dispose of without coming into contact with its contents. Employ a steam cleaner for carpets and upholstery, including pet beds.

What are the signs of a flea infestation?

Signs of a flea infestation include seeing:

  • fleas hopping on your drapery, carpet, or furniture.
  • multiple dot-like insects in your pet’s fur
  • your pets scratch, lick, or bite their fur excessively.

Also, lots of brown and black debris throughout the fur coat can indicate a flea infestation. (This is the flea poop that is left behind after a blood meal.)

Your pets can get scabs or lose their fur in the infested area. They may develop pale gums from blood loss.

Animals infested with fleas are also more susceptible to tapeworms, as some species of tapeworm use fleas as their hosts. If you see tapeworms in your pet’s stool, your pet likely has a flea infestation.
