a cocoon at the pupae stage.

Many times, "flea bombs" or flea collars just don't do the trick , a
better understanding of the flea life cycle and knowing how to break their life cylcle
is very important to understand.
- Female fleas need blood to complete their reproductive cycle. Baby
fleas need blood to grow. Although fleas prefer dog and cat blood, they
will eat human blood.
- The female lays eggs on the host animal, but the eggs fall to the
ground, carpet, sofa, dog bed, owner's bed, or easy chair where they
hatch in two-to-five days.
- The flea larva feeds on organic debris in the environment.
Within a week or two, depending on temperature and humidity, the larva
spins a pupa (or cocoon) to protect it during metamorphosis to the adulthood.
- In the hard-shelled pupa, the larva transforms from a tiny maggot-larvae
like creature into an adult able to leap 100 times its own height, and
the cycle begins again !
- It may take a couple of treatments to kill off the emerging adults
as they evolve from the larvae stage within the first 4-6 weeks. For
that reason, the best time to start a flea control program is in the
late spring ,prior to an infestation.
- To contain an infestation, fleas must be controlled: Whenever you
see adult fleas crawling on your pet, it is only a symptom of a much
- Current studies indicate that adult fleas account for only 5% of the
total flea population in any given situation. Eggs account for 50%,
larvae account for about 35%, and the remaining 10% are the pupal cocoons.
That means that for every single adult flea living on your dog or cat,
there are 10 eggs, 7 larvae, and 2 cocoons.
These various life cycle stages will be found anywhere in the pet's
environment, but will be most concentrated in the areas that the pet
spends most of its time. Remember, when the adult flea on the pet lays
an egg, it will fall off the hairs in just a few minutes....it is very
similar to them sowing "seeds". So, areas where the pet sleeps or lies
around will have the most eggs. If the pet usually walks through certain
paths (either indoors or outdoors), t here will also be a substantial
amount of eggs scattered in those areas. What this means is that environmental
flea control must be spread over the pet's entire environment, focusing
on the areas the pet spends the majority of his or her time.
