Fleas are parasites that feed on blood, and seem to prefer humans, cats, dogs, opossums, rats and other rodents. A flea can jump up to 8 inches high and are usually found on shoes, pant legs, or blankets.
Fleas have a long and infamous history as pests of humans and domestic animals:
Ridding a home of fleas can be a frustrating and costly endeavor. Unlike some pests encountered around the home, fleas cause discomfort and irritation to both pets and people. They account for more than half of all dermatological conditions requiring veterinary assistance, and even a single flea bite to a hypersensitive animal or person may cause intense itching and irritation. It would be a grave mistake to think of the flea as simply a nuisance. A heavy flea burden can be lethal to younger or smaller animal. Clearly, fleas are more than a nuisance.
They are a health menace that have no place in our homes and often they require the skills of a professional exterminator to eradicate.
For successful flea control, the home, pet and oftentimes, the yard must be treated. Yet the manner in which these treatments are performed can greatly influence the results. The following information will help frustrated pet owners effectively rid their homes and pets of fleas.
