Fleas 101

A flea is a kind of insect which feeds on warm blood. The most common kind of fleas people find in their home are the ones that cats get infested by. They have dark red or brownish color and they’re very tiny – about a 6th of an inch in length. Mammals are the favorite for fleas because of their warm blood and they can be found in animals, whether kept as pets or those in the wild. For those who have known the full extent of a flea infestation, they know that fleas can be a bigger problem than for just pets. The fleas on your pets can easily get transmitted to humans. All they want is to bite and get some blood. When they get to you and start biting, they become a huge problem despite their tiny size. The flea bites can make your life very uncomfortable with all that itching. Plus, fleas are also known to carry a good variety of diseases. So, as tiny as fleas are, they can make your life a living hell.

Signs of an Infestation

If you have a flea infestation it should be very noticeable, especially if you have pets. The hard thing about having an infestation is getting rid of them. When you have an infestation, you may notice that your pets are scratching their hinds and neck areas much more often. You want to check those areas, which is where most fleas like to feed off of and see if they have any hair loss or redness. Another thing you want to look out for are tiny fleas jumping around on their fur or red and black droppings on them. As soon as you notice that you have an infestation, you want to make sure that you contact a pest professional immediately because they are extremely quick reproducers and can lay anywhere from 40-50 eggs per day.
