Hartz Mountain Infographic - Flea Reproduction

472 views

Published on

Fleas reproduction is highly centered around the availability of blood. Adult fleas can only reproduce when they are full of blood. When both male and female flea have been fed, the male will attach himself either with suckerlike appendages on his antennae or will grasp her hind legs with hooks on his abdomen. Once he is locked onto her, he will deposit sperm directly into her reproductive organs.
