“So what can we tell clients who are reluctant to use flea products year-round? A good place to start is to readdress the flea life cycle to ensure that clients understand that adult fleas on their pets represent only a small percentage of the total flea population on their pets and in the environment. Also, clients need to appreciate that if they fail to administer flea control products during these so-called 'down times,' it will require more effort (in addition to tolerance and patience) in the future to eliminate fleas.”
