Where Do Fleas Hide?

Where Do Fleas Hide?

Fleas are the most common type of parasite and are notorious for their blood-sucking habits. These insects can live in the fur of your pet and can lay up to 50 eggs a day. These eggs hatch after two weeks and are spread silently and quickly. Fleas also like shady and moist areas and can be found in the bedding of your pets.

Fleas are common indoors and can be found in private homes, summer cottages, and high-rise buildings. These warm, moist areas are excellent breeding grounds for fleas. Fleas are also found on upholstered furniture and couches. The pupae often hide between cushions, so if your pet takes naps on your sofa, there is a good chance they’ll have fleas on them.

Fleas can live on your clothes for a few hours, but they won’t live on them permanently. It’s best to limit contact with your clothes and to change out of dressy clothes every few days. In addition, you can check your bedding to see if you have fleas.

Fleas hide outdoors in your yard, but you can reduce their numbers by cutting grass and using yard spray. Use an insecticide designed for lawns, trees, and shrubs. Carpets are also a great place for fleas to hide and are best cleaned with a vacuum.
