  • A female flea can lay more than 50 eggs a day. That adds up to a serious infestation in no time

  • Adult fleas feed on blood, from your dog and cat, and they can feed on you and your family too
  • Fleas cause itching, skin irritation, and in some pets they cause Flea Allergy Dermatitis
  • A heavy infestation of fleas can cause anemia in your pet
  • Fleas transmit tapeworms – which dangerous to your pet’s health
  • Resolving a flea infestation in your home is frustrating, costly, and time-consuming… it can take months
