You might not notice your property even has fleas until you wake up one morning to find you’re covered in itchy, swollen bites. Having a flea-infested home can feel like you’re living in a nightmare. They’re hard to see, hard to control, and can even spread harmful diseases.
How Did My Flea Infestation Start?
Fleas are small, wingless insects that are able to jump long distances. They’re reddish-brown and leave itchy bites that can easily become swollen and inflamed. Most flea infestations start with household pets like cats and dogs. When pets are outside, fleas attach to them and then quickly spread throughout your home once your animals come back inside. Infestations have also been shown to start with rodents, raccoons, or feral cats that are invading your home or hiding away in your crawl space.
