Do Fleas Die Winter Months? — 2 Comments

  1. This is extremely inaccurate, or at best, misleading. Fleas themselves DO die in cold and extreme heat. And it doesn’t even have to be extreme. Sustained temperatures as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit will kill fleas. The way they survive is by being on animals where even outside, the temperature near their skin is usually warm enough to survive. They can also be in leaf piles or along a house where they will exist in their own micro-climate that could be above 40 degrees. Fleas are actually not very good survivors compared to other insect pests,

    • Thank you for your information lakawak… you are right in some aspects of your information.. if the fleas are left outside and don’t come in contact or find a place to hide in leaves or dirt outside they will die.. however they can bury in the ground and leaves etc.. when not cleaned from someones yard and when the temps get warm enough they will re-infest and breed… if your outside yard is treated this is a less common problem to happen.. thank you for your input.. it’s greatly appreciated!!
