Fleas are commonly linked with pets such as cats and dogs. The reason for this is that they inadvertently carry them around! If you own pets then it is essential that you maintain and care for them so that they aren’t prone to being a host for fleas. Fleas can range from 2mm to 8mm in length and aren’t easily detected with the human eye. Their bodies are flat which helps them move around with ease while being able to get into hard to reach places. Fleas will drink blood for survival, hence the reason they are found hitching a ride on cats and dogs. One of the other places that fleas love to breed is in your carpet. If you are itching and scratching then chances are fleas have infested your carpets, rugs or other places in your home. Due to their bloodsucking nature, fleas can spread disease so it is really important than you get yourself a qualified pest controller to solve your flea problems the moment you realise there is an issue.
Signs Of Fleas In Your Home
Signs of fleas are a little difficult to assess. One of the main reasons for this is that three of the four stages of a flea’s life (egg, larva, pupa and adult) sees them hard to detect to the human eye. Making it even more difficult is the fact that most of the time when fleas have infested a premises, 80 percent of the total fleas will be in the eggs and larvae stage. Adults will make up just two percent of the fleas. If you do spot a flea then chances are there could more lurking around somewhere.
