A flea’s flat shape allows cat fleas to easily pass between the hairs of animals.
One female flea can lay about 18 eggs a day and just 20 fleas on a dog can produce 360 eggs per day and over 2000 eggs in a week. A female flea may consume up to fifteen times her own body weight in blood each day, to support the huge production of eggs.
Flea eggs will hatch on the ground, in nests, carpet, bedding, upholstery or cracks in the floor.
