1) Fleas are incredible athletes. A flea can jump over seven inches high and thirteen inches long. If a flea were the size of a human, that’s equivalent to jumping 1000 feet high or over some of the world's tallest skyscrapers!
2) Fleas can go a long time without eating. Pupae can stay in their cocoons for up to a year. Adult fleas can go one to two weeks without a meal! When they do eat, they can drink up to 15 times their body weight in blood daily!
3) A female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day and up to 2000 eggs in her lifetime! Between the female flea and her offspring, in 60 days, you could be dealing with up to 20,000 fleas!
For more information about fleas or flea preventative medications please don't hesitate to contact us.
