Fleas are insects that feed on the blood of mammals such as cats, dogs, bats, birds and humans. They can live up to two years and the females can lay more than a million eggs in their lifetime. Fleas can be extremely bothersome especially when they feed on a pet that stays indoors. Fleas can jump up to 200 times their own body-length, which makes travel from one host to another very easy. By following a few steps, you can make a natural bath for your pet that will kill fleas.
