Further Information About A Flea
Fleas can vary in colour - from grey to a dark mahogany. Eggs produced by females are usually 0.5mm in length and are like pearls. Eggs are often laid in carpets, in cracks in floorboards, on human/animal fur, in bedding or on clothing. Eggs hatch within 2-3 days of being laid.
Flea young are whitish and can measure up to 5mm in length. Importantly, they grow well under hot and humid conditions. After the insect had shed 2-3 times they become a fully grown adult.
Cocoons are created by adding debris, so it can be fed off during metamorphosis. The development time of the cocoon is purely dependant on the external temperature. Emergence is also dependant on vibrations of the outside world. When fleas enter the world as adults, they are ready for their first meal, which is usually blood.
Behaviour of Fleas
Adults are fully capable of surviving without a blood meal for a fortnight. Flea larvae develop well in dark, hot places such as animal bedding and within carpets. Young feed off remnants of organic material and adult flea faeces.
Adults fleas are known to feed on the blood of humans and most domesticated animals. Nevertheless, if a preferred host is not available, then they are likely to choose another host off which to feed. Essentially, A flea's diet is that of animal and human blood.
