Flea eggs are very difficult to spot and sometimes it’s easy to think you’ve got rid of the fleas in your home when you haven’t.
Fleas will lay their eggs on your cat or dog’s body, however, the eggs will not stay there. Flea eggs easily fall off and can become hidden in rugs, carpets, gaps, bedding or between floorboards. Flea eggs are white, oval in shape and tiny (only about 0.5mm long). They are almost impossible to see against rough materials and surfaces.
