Itís estimated that for every flea you can find on your dog there are nine others in the house you canít. If you find an adult flea on your dog or cat there will be others in various stages of the flea lifecycle lying in wait; egg, larvae, pupae and flea. So there are three things you have to do in order to clear your home of them completely. All three are best done on the same day so youíre not tackling one part of the job while the other parts rage out of control. If you donít get on top of things itís only going to get worse. Sorry about that. I speak from experience!
