How are fleas killed when exposed to IGRs?

When exposed to IGRs, adult fleas are unable to reproduce; eggs fail to hatch and larvae die before they complete their development. Because most IGRs kill only eggs and larvae, they do not eliminate adult fleas quickly. For this reason, they are usually mixed with a mild insecticide.

How are fleas spread from one host to another?

Due to this ability, they easily move from one host to another, and will also land on anything around your home, including you. That is the way infestations are spread. There are more than 2.000 types of these pests and they are generally species-specific: e.g. cat fleas won’t feed off of dogs and vice versa.

What happens when you have a flea infestation?

The whole thing of dealing with fleas makes most people itch all over. No wonder: these are really nasty, disgusting little bugs. Not only will they crawl on your pets and suck their blood, but they can also jump on you and bite you, causing much scratching and allergic reactions.

Where do fleas go during their life cycle?

During their life cycle fleas pass through four stages–egg, larva, pupa and adult. Although they can jump, adult fleas do not usually travel long distances without a host. Fleas prefer to wait and jump onto a passing animal. Once aboard, they remain until they are dislodged or groomed from the animal.
