The Flea Lifecycle
Only 5% of the entire ﬂea population is the adult ﬂea! That means that for every 5 ﬂeas you see, there are 95 eggs, larvae or pupae elsewhere. To think that every adult female can lay 2,000 eggs (50 a day) is pretty scary, so you can see how even a few adults can mean serious problems in a short period of time if your pets aren’t protected.
