       FLEAS

FLEAS WILL LAY THOUSANDS OF EGGS, WHICH HATCH AFTER TWO TO THREE DAYS, INTO LARVAE, WHICH ARE 4MM IN LENGTH. AFTER APPROXIMATELY 2 MONTHS, THE LARVAE WILL DEVELOP INTO YOUNG ADULTS. YOUNG ADULT FLEAS REMAIN DORMANT INSIDE SILK COCOONS FOR WEEKS OR EVEN MONTHS. THEY EMERGE TO FEED WHEN STIMULATED BY SOME MECHANICAL VIBRATION, USUALLY A CAT OR DOG (PRIMARY HOST). HOWEVER, IN THE ABSENCE OF A CAT OR DOG, THEY MAY EMERGE AND FEED ON HUMANS (SECONDARY HOST). THERE MAY BE SEVERAL THOUSAND COCOONS LOCATED WHERE CATS & DOGS SLEEP, AROUND EDGES OF SOFA''S, CHAIRS ETC.OR ACTUALLY IN THE FABRIC OF THE SOFA''S AND OTHER SOFT FURNISHINGS. IN FACT, ALL AREAS WHERE A SUITABLE HOST IS LIKELY TO PASS.
