Suffering from nasty flea bites on you or your pet? Fleas can be dangerous to have around your home as they feed on the blood of warm-blooded mammals and have the ability to transmit dangerous diseases that make you sick or possibly put you in the hospital.
Fleas are small and wingless. Their bodies are shiny and reddish brown in color, covered with tiny hair and are compressed to allow for easy movement through animal fur. Both pets and humans can suffer from flea bites. Despite the fact that most fleas don’t live on humans, they can bite humans bringing an uncomfortable itch or rash.
Flea season commonly peaks during the hot days, but these pests can actually be a constant problem. The time to start looking for them – and taking preventative measures to protect your pet from them is during the spring. But, if you see that your pet is scratching more often and with greater rush, you should check your pet immediately to determine whether or not fleas are present.
To determine if you have a flea problem, check your pet. Move back their fur to search for fleas or fleabites on the skin. Additionally, if they have been scratching more often, this may be a sign they’ve got fleas. Take your pet to the veterinarian, and then have your home treated professionally by a pest control expert. Only then can you control your fleabites and stop further itchy, scratchy bumps.
Yes. If you don’t have a pet, your fleabites could be coming from your yard or another person’s pet. Fleas prefer tall grass and shaded areas near decks, woodpiles, or storage buildings. Just as pet owners have to treat their homes if they become infested, getting rid of an outdoor flea infestation may require you to treat your property.
