Fleas are a common domestic pest in hot humid areas. Homes with pets tend to have a bigger problem with fleas. Fleas are only staying on the pet (host) to feed. They live in the sand or lawn surfaces in the garden. Even in the house in the carpets or bedding.
Flea eggs can survive up to 9 month in the sand. They are breeding rapidly and cause an irritation which can lead to signs. Any pet, human or other pests like rodents are hosts of fleas. It is very important to treat the pets when the domestic area is treated.
