With the insect season in full swing, we are seeing fleas emerging in well above average force.  Fleas have some unique qualities that make their control challenging.  The pupal stage (egg-larva-pupa-adult) is their most protected stage, they are in essence “dug in”.  They are not feeding, or moving for that matter and are completely encased and secure.

Unfortunately for do-it-yourself treatments, this is the point where the “flea bomb” fails.  Anything in the pupal stage has been unaffected.  Which means it is simply waiting to emerge as an adult, feed, lay eggs and begin the life cycle anew.  Our treatment has residual qualities lasting for weeks or months, meaning that the emerging adults will come in contact with an active treatment and die before being able to lay eggs.
