Fleas can live in your home, in your carpeting or in your lawn for several months without food —just waiting to jump onto their next victim! Fleas can jump three feet high. One female flea can lay as many as 10,000 eggs. Fleas not only cause discomfort by biting but they can transmit disease like tapeworm and one bite can cause severe allergic problems. So be sure to get your pets (and indirectly you!) protected against fleas.
Some intestinal worms can grow to as long as 5 metres (the length of a bus)! Be sure to give your pets worming tablets regularly.
