Fleas are a problem that you and your Broken Arrow pest control company can work together to eliminate. These insects are bloodsucking insects that attack our pets. Cats and dogs are highly susceptible to fleas and can be infested with them. In addition, they also can bite humans and pass diseases to both animal family members and human ones. It’s so important to make sure your home is free of fleas, and that you are not having any issues with these insects. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at fleas, their life cycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow pest control company can do to protect yourselves, and your loved ones from fleas and their adverse effects.



Fleas use a complete metamorphosis to develop into the adult flea. This means that they go through four distinct phases of their life. Life as a flea begins as an egg. These eggs will be laid by a female, and once it hatches, the next stage will begin. The larva will emerge from the egg. This worm-like structure will search for food anywhere that can. Its favorite meal is the droppings of the adult flea from which it can consume undigested blood. Check out our reviews!


After the larva has grown to a certain point, it will begin to create a cocoon around itself, entering into the third phase of life. At this point, the flea entered the pupa stage. Here it will develop into the adult flea. It will wait inside this cocoon until it senses heat and vibration outside. This will indicate that there’s a possible host nearby, and it will hatch from its cocoon. At this point it will become an adult flea, ready to reproduce and start the process over again. Call your Broken Arrow pest control company for more information.  



Fleas are somewhat difficult to control because of the way that they go through their life cycle. In the egg and pupa form, these insects are protected from pesticides. Often people will go to the hardware store and get a pesticide that’s actually quite effective against these insects. A Broken Arrow Pest Control company would be better.  They’ll spray and have a reprieve from flea activity for a week or two. Then suddenly the fleas will be back with force. This could be very discouraging, if you don’t understand the process by which fleas grow. What’s happened is the pesticide has killed off all the adult fleas and larva. In a few weeks, the eggs and pupas will hatch and a new generation of fleas will emerge. They’ll need to be taken care of as well. Contact your Broken Arrow pest control for help with fleas.
