Did you know that only 5% of fleas live on your pet? Fleas have a complicated life-cycle, 95% of their life is spent in the form of eggs, larvae and pupae that are actually in your home. In real terms, that means that for every flea you see on your pet, there are potentially 20 more of its friends and family in your home.
Flea eggs, for instance, laid by adult female fleas, roll off pets' coats into any crevices (including carpets, rugs, pet bedding, skirting boards and floorboards). The hatching larvae burrow deep down to protect themselves in these crevices and soft furnishings where they turn into pupae. They can stay in this state for as long as a year but, eventually, they will develop into adult fleas, leap onto your pet as it passes and the life-cycle starts again.
The most effective way to protect your home from flea infestation is to use award winning Indorex Defence household flea spray. It is sprayed directly onto carpets, rugs, flooring, skirting boards and other potential flea hideouts. Best used in conjunction with applying a good quality spot-on on all dogs and cats in the home, breaking the flea life cycle will wipe out the next generation of fleas and protect your home from infestations for up to a year.
