How To Prevent, Control, And Control Fleas In Your Home And Your Pet'S Skin
Fleas can easily infest homes and pets. This is because of their rapid reproduction rate and cleverly evolved life cycle. The flea life cycle has four stages. Adult, Egg, Larva, and Pupa. Without proper prevention and treatment, fleas can and will infest your pets and your home. Flea bath products are temporary solutions. They should not be used in lieu of proper flea control products. Treating your pet with effective flea prevention is the most important measure. Three out of four stages in the flea's life cycle are spent on the host. Diatomaceous earth is a fine, soft powder made from the remains of diatoms.
