We handle flea infestation problems with care!
One common type of flea is the cat flea. Each cat flea has four stages of a life cycle, which include: egg, larvae, pupa and adult. The female cat flea is able to lay over 400 eggs within one life span of 1 – 4 weeks. Before laying eggs, the female cat flea requires a meal consisting of blood.
Only adult fleas will live on the pet. The adult fleas are typically 1 – 3 mm long. Fleas are reddish-brown to black and flat. The flea’s strong hindlegs allow the fleas to easily jump and run through your pet’s fur or feathers. Fleas thrive in environments that are protected from rain and sunlight. They also enjoy an environment with temperatures around 75ºF. This makes most homes in the Portland area the ideal location for fleas.
