  Flea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fleas are external parasites, living by hematophagy off the blood of mammals and birds, and genetic and morphological evidence indicates that they are descendants of the Scorpionfly family Boreidae, which are also flightless; accordingly it is possible that they will eventually be reclassified as a suborder within the Mecoptera.
In most cases, fleas are just a nuisance to their hosts, but some people and some animals suffer allergic reactions to flea saliva resulting in rashes.
Flea "dirt," in the fur of a cat, is actually excess blood (from host) consumed by the adult flea, passed as feces.

This new flea product is so good that if you use it monthly you'll get good results right away and even better results after a few months when all the eggs and larvae are finally eliminated.
But not very effective at controlling an established flea problem.  I know there's a certain satisfaction in squishing fleas as you comb them out.  But remember that the adult fleas that you kill represent only the tip of the iceberg...for every adult you kill, there are thousands of larvae and hundreds of thousands of eggs.
