Quality pest control for fleas is the one and only solution which aims at exterminating fleas in your house.
Fleas are parasites that draw blood from their hosts – this is their main food source as adults. The flea larvae, on the other hand, consumes organic waste. They live near the adults and scavenge for their blood-rich bodily deposits. The adults are about 2.5 mm long - they don't have wings and their bodies are covered in tiny spines with piercing mouthparts. The flea eggs can hatch on different places around your home – wall coverings, fissures, beds and so forth, nothing is protected. If your pets repeatedly scratch and groom themselves, it is a clear sign of a flea infestation and a hint that your home is in a need of a professional flea treatment.
If you see black, pepper-like particles in pet beds or in other privy places they use, it is a clear indication of a flea presence. Fleas are very difficult to catch – they can jump up to 25 centimetres! Trying to catch them individually is a lost cause. A single flea lives up to 100 days and needs one mate to produce up to five hundred larvae.
While it is uncommon to witness fleas feeding only on humans, it is not unlikely. If you see even one of these jumping insects, you should proceed with professional flea extermination as soon as possible. Not only pets suffer from flea bites – humans can be threatened if the flea population goes out of control. And the fact is, store-bought sprays and products do little to rid of the issue, increasing their resistance to further treatments - it can do more harm than good.
The first signs of flea bites on humans are itchy red spots on the lower legs. Some people exhibit flea allergies. If you experience excessive itching and secondary infection, this may be a sign of allergic reaction that needs to be treated by an allergist. Moreover, these parasites spread diseases such as typhus and tularemiaand you should never underestimate the deadly potential of the creatures - the Black Death pandemic that swept across Europe in the 14th century was carried by fleas on rats.
In all cases, if you notice red spots surrounded by reddened halos, you should contact a doctor immediately. Furthermore, you must get in touch with an exterminator to discuss the proper flea treatment measures that need to be taken.
