Typically, if your pet has fleas, there’s a very good chance that those fleas have found their way into your home as well. If you think that you have fleas in your home, the first place you should check is your pet. When you look at your pet’s skin closely, you may notice small black specs, which are the flea’s feces. These may also be apparent in your pets bedding. Although it is often difficult to see fleas with the naked eye, it is possible and if you look very closely, you may see them jumping moving around on your pet, their bedding or in your carpets.
If you think that you have spotted a flea infestation is it important that you act fast, especially during the warmer months. Just how quickly it takes for fleas to develop will depend on the heat and humidity but typically, it will take 2-3 days for new eggs to hatch.
