Facts About Fleas
Fleas are parasites that feed on any warm blooded animal, including us humans. They thrive in warm humid climates which makes the summer season a perfect time for them to prey on you and your pets.
You can identify a flea by their dark color, narrow body, and their ability to jump anywhere from 7-16 inches vertically and horizontally. Fleas range in size from 1/12 – 1/6 of an inch and they feed on blood and dried blood. Some signs that you might have a flea infestation include skin irritation from bites that will itch/bleed and an increased scratching in your pets.
The best way to manage fleas is to start treatment in the late spring. However, if you have active fleas in your home already, controlling them without professional care can be quite tricky. The adult fleas you see jumping around your home only accounts for 5% of the total population that reside in your house. The remaining flea population are in egg, larvae, and cocoons forms which hide in dark, hard-to-reach places such as in cracks/crevices, carpet fibers, and under furniture.
Effective treatment to control flea infestation is dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming every surface in your home and where your pet frequents. Liquid insecticides and aerosols can be used but require you and any pets to be removed from the home for hours at a time. If you have a flea infestation and want them exterminated, it is best to hire professionals such as Preferred Pest Control to deal with them for you. We will inspect your home, locate areas of flea infestation, and introduce methods of control to make sure all flea adults, eggs, larvae, and cocoons are eliminated from the premises.
