Protect us against fleas and ticks!
Fleas are small and fast moving insects. Those external parasites infest their host by jumping on them. Once they become adults, fleas start living on our pets, biting them and feeding on their blood.
They can be hard to detect when your pet is infested. It is easier to spot flea faeces than the insect itself. The first signs of flea infestation are usually itching and/or scratching, due to irritation caused by flea bites.
Only 5% of the flea population is visible on your pet.
The fleas infest your pet’s environment. When you detect adult fleas on your pet, it generally means that eggs, larvae and pupae are already infesting your home.
A classical flea population is made of 95% of hidden immature stages that are about to become adults!
Protect your animal against fleas!
It is important to regularly protect your pet against fleas, knowing that beyond the itching and scratching, fleas can cause flea allergy dermatitis and transmit severe diseases such as tapeworm, viruses, bartonellosis, rickettsiosis to you and your pet.
Flea life cycle
- Flea eggs: a female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day. These eggs fall off your pet and contaminate your home (bedding, carpets and soft furnishings).
- Flea larvae: after hatching, they eat flea dirt and debris in the environment.
- Flea pupae: the pupae remain in their cocoon. They can stay dormant, waiting for the right conditions to emerge.
- Adult fleas: new adult fleas jump on their host to eat their first blood meal.
