One of the main fact about fleas that you should probably know is that they can lay up to 2,000 eggs in their entire lifetime. And that fleas don’t really have to be living on the skin of their hosts in order to survive as well. Which means that you are required to act promptly regarding any signs of a flea infestation in your home as before you know it, your house could already be nesting these little icky pests. A friendly note, you should check on your carpets, furniture, mattresses, rugs and pet beds for signs of fleas. Even if you think that you pets seem to be free from any fleas, you can never be too sure as these little pests are great at hiding and they can actually be lurking in to your home. Another fact about the life cycle of these little pests is that they can freeze and put off their growth while they are in their larvae stage during the cold season, as to which they can only hatch when the environment temperature is right for them.
