The adult female will lay 4- 8 eggs after each blood meal. In her lifetime, she may lay about 300 eggs. Most eggs fall off the host and be distributed by the host animal. High concentration of flea eggs are often associated with animal sleeping quaterers. Eggs usually hatch in 2- 14 days and Larvae feed on available organic material, in the form of crumbs, human skin scales and other debris found in carpets, furniture, pets, bedding, cracks between floorboards, lawns, gardens and subfloors soil. Adult fleas often excrete dark granules and often left behind for larvae to feed on. The feeding period for flea larvae is usually 15 days.
