Commercial flea killing compounds can work if used properly but they are not
the only alternative to stopping fleas. There are effective home remedies that
work as well or better.
The life cycle of the flea has four different stages including the egg,
larva, pupa and adult.
The adult flea uses your dog as a place to take
its blood meals and breed. Fleas either lay eggs directly on the pet where they
may drop off, or deposit eggs into the immediate surroundings around your home.
