Fleas- cat or dog at home? Fleas can be carried on humans and live in carpets and bedding. Fleas can lay up to 1000 eggs in their lifetime and survive up to 3 months without a meal.

Bites often occur on the lower half of the body as they have jumped from ground level. Fleas and their lava can be immensely hard to treat without professional insecticide due to the tough nature of the eggs which may lay dormant for a couple of months which is why a residual insecticide and growth regulator must be used.
