Flea is another very dangerous pest that can be very harmful to you and your pets. Fleas feed themselves on host’s blood. If you have a pet, a cat or a dog, at your home fleas can very easily enter your home via your pet. You must take fleas very seriously and contact a flea control professional as soon you find them on your pet or anywhere at home. Fleas are not only dangerous for your pets but they can also attack and ‘feed’ on your blood. For that reason you need a helping hand from a pest control services provider near you. Only a pest control professional can eliminate the fleas from your premises completely.
How fleas choose a home
- Fleas and their eggs usually found in soft furnishings which provide plenty of insulation, such as pet bedding, carpets, clothes and upholstered furniture.
- Fleas can live on any warm-blooded animal but are often found to be living on humans, rodents and domestic animals.
- When not feeding on a host, fleas are mostly active in common rooms, places where pets sleep and wherever there is most activity.
- If you have an active infestation, you may see fleas jumping in your carpet and furniture.
To get rid of fleas, you need to first positively identify them as being fleas:
- Fleas are about 1/18th inch in length.
- They are very dark brown in color.
- Their bodies are wingless and hard.
- Fleas cannot fly, but, rather, jump from one host animal to another.
- Back legs are longer than the front legs.
Infection and Disease
Fleas can be of harm to pets as they will bite the animal in order to feed on its blood, resulting in both annoyance and possible disease transmission, such as:
- The animal’s continuous scratching at the flea-bitten areas can cause hair loss or infection.
- The fleas can spread tapeworm infestation in the pest, which can also be spread to humans.
- Fleas can also spread plague from infected wild animals.
- Although fleas prefer animals over humans, they can bite and feed on people, leaving small itchy, red marks as signs of their presence.
