how can a inside pet get fleas?

There are many ways an inside pet can develop a flea problem. If you review our online FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn that fleas abound outside. Commonly found on most any animal active in the neighborhood, these fleas will no doubt be laying eggs and these eggs and other developing stages can end up in your front, side or back yard. When people living in a residence venture outside for a moment or two they are vulnerable to adult fleas. And though the adult fleas don’t like to spend their life on a person, they’ll gladly take a ride and grab a bite to eat along the way as they get carried back inside the dwelling.
