A Message From our Friends at Bayer…

Why do fleas keep coming back?

Flea infestations can be difficult to control. The adult fleas that are visible on a pet and in a person’s home are only 5% of the infestation.  The other 95% are younger life stages in the pet’s environment. If you don’t combat the various life stages of fleas, they can keep coming back again and again.  Understanding the flea life cycle will help you better educate your clients. Learn More
