Seattle flea infestations often result from a flea latching to the skin of a pet, such as a dog or a cat. Once inside, the fleas lay their eggs underneath furniture, in the baseboards, and in any space that is dark, cool, and secluded.
Fleas can lay up to 100 eggs every 45 days. In egg form, larvae can live up to a full year. Once hatched, adult fleas can live for more than 100 days. These insects can go dormant while there is no activity around the property, but will be woken up to vibrations in the building’s structure when pets or humans walk around the area. In apartments, this is a common occurrence when a current tenant moves out and there is several weeks before the new tenants arrive.
Fleas In Your Home
If you have fleas in your home and you own pets, it’s likely that your pet brought them in and is currently serving as their host. If you are not a pet owner, it’s possible that the house was already infested before you arrived, or a flea was carried in on a visitor or piece of clothing. Fleas can transmit bartonellosis and tapeworm, so it is important that the infestation is dealt with swiftly and thoroughly.

Fleas have been known to bite humans, but only as a last resort. These insects much prefer their hosts to be a dog or a cat, so once they discover that you are neither they should jump right off to search for another food source.
