Grow For It!: Flea and tick control

By From page B2 | February 08, 2012



The common flea of cats and dogs is an annoying pest and carries diseases. A cat or small dog may become anemic from fleas. Adult fleas live on the host. Flea eggs fall off the host, hatching in 1-3 days. The larvae develop into adult fleas in a few weeks or months, depending on temperature and humidity. The cocoons may be stimulated to hatch by movement (walking or vacuuming), warmth or carbon dioxide.
