Fleas reproduce and spread rapidly. For every flea on your pet there may be hundreds waiting to emerge. Flea eggs laid on the pet can also embed into your carpet or wooden flooring. When eggs hatch small, blind larvae emerge. These larvae move away from light finding a home in cracks in the floor or your carpet.
These larvae move away from the light, burrowing down into the carpet, cracks in the floor or soil.
