The third installment of common myths I hear about fleas
Flea Myth #3: “We only saw a few fleas, so the house isn’t infested.” Not really. Because fleas are reproductive machines, there can easily be hundreds of fleas in the environment for every adult you see. Adult fleas are just the tip of the pyramid, and all the other life stages (eggs, larvae, pupae, pre-emerged adults) collect in the pet’s environment. And carefully flea combing for five minutes only turns up a fraction of the fleas on the average dog. So remember, if you find even one flea, there are hundreds more maturing shortly!
Myth #4 next week!
