If you live with domestic pets, you also live with the risk of fleas. Most veterinarians encourage pet owners to treat their cats and dogs year-round for fleas—but not everyone does.
Once inside your home, these parasitic insects hide on floors and in carpet, looking to feast on warm-blooded creatures—humans included. Fleas are biters and, at their worst, disease-spreaders.
Having a plan in place to prevent fleas from becoming a problem is sound logic for any pet owner. But in the event an infestation does happen, we’ll move these pests out—and keep them out.
Usually, cats and dogs pick up fleas while outdoors, either from grass during an interaction with another animal, then bring them inside when they return indoors. Sometimes, fleas even hitch a ride on humans. Fleas get around by jumping more than 100 times their height to reach their host.
Fleas have narrow bodies capable of easily moving between hair follicles and carpet fibers, allowing them to avoid detection—and find a safe place to multiply. If left unchecked, a few fleas can turn to many, even before you’re aware of their presence.
Although it’s rare these days for fleas to spread disease to humans, the possibility cannot be ruled out completely. For our history buffs, the Black Plague of the 1300s was caused by flea infested mice and rats. In fact, the plague still exists today, although it’s now treatable. Fleas can also carry flea-borne typhus, cat-scratch disease, and even tapeworms.
