Fleas are a common pest problem often found in homes across the country, especially in properties with pets. It is also possible to have a flea problem even if you do not have any pets, as the issue may even arise if previous property owners kept dogs or cats. They can also be carried into the home from hairy animals, such as rabbits, rats, mice, foxes, squirrels or livestock.
The biggest concern most people have about the presence of fleas within their domestic or commercial property is bites. While they are often not painful, they may cause an uncomfortable and unsightly rash. What’s more, pets may also develop an allergy to fleas’ saliva, and their bites could affect a dog or cat’s quality of life.
It can be difficult to spot fleas due to their small size. However, what they lack in size they make up for in an annoying bite, which can make their presence known to both pets and humans. There are a multitude of signs that your home may have a flea problem.
In addition to a rash, your dog or cat may experience visible discomfort from the flea bites, as a pet may constantly bite at their fur or incessantly scratch. It is also very common for the pests to appear in homes during the hot summer months, and there are a variety of fleas that could be invading your home, such as cat, dog, bird or human fleas.
