How Did My Flea Infestation Start?
In the majority of cases, your flea infestation started with your household pet. Fleas will attach to your animal’s fur when they’re outside or come in contact with another flea carrier, and once they’re brought inside, fleas will begin to breed and spread throughout your home extremely quickly. Though it’s much less common, some flea infestations have also been traced back to wild animals like raccoons, cats, and rodents living in or underneath your home unbeknownst to you.
Tips on Preventing Flea Infestations:
- Wash all the bedding in your home – including your pets’ bedding – on a regular basis, at least once a week.
- Get your pets groomed on a vet recommended schedule.
- Start your pets on preventative flea treatments as soon as possible. Ask your vet for recommendations.
- Vacuum your home – especially the carpets and rugs – at least once a week.
You Might Have Fleas If:
- You notice your pets scratching and itching more than usual.
- You start to find red, itchy bites, especially on your legs and feet.
- You see what look like small piles of coarse ground black pepper around your home. This could be “flea dirt,” another name for flea feces.
Facts about Fleas:
- Fleas can’t survive without consuming animal or human blood.
- Dogs, cats, rodents, and rabbits are the most common carriers of fleas.
- Flea feces and bites have been known to transmit harmful diseases like flea-borne typhus, plague, bartonellosis (cat scratch disease), flea tapeworm, and tungiasis.
