Fleas can be a common, nuisance problem, especially in homes with pets. However, you may still discover a problem with fleas even if you have a pet free home. Fleas can be carried on other animals such as rabbits, foxes, squirrels, rats, mice and even livestock such as pigs.
The greatest concern about the presence of fleas in your home or business comes from their bites. Although not painful, they can result in an itch or reactive rash, which is uncomfortable. And not only that, your pets could also develop an allergic reaction.
Likely causes a flea infestation?
Dogs can become a victim to the flea from the vegetation outside or other animals' fur. Emerging adult fleas immediately seek blood. They are attracted to body heat, vibrations, movement and shadows cast by potential hosts as they pass. Fleas will then jump in the direction of the perceived shadow.
Fleas are easily transferred to carpets, rugs or soft furnishings when your pet lies down. The flea’s eggs will drop from the host animal onto surfaces when they rest (carpets, rugs, pet bedding, sofas) and the larvae will then develop into adults, emerging to find a host to feed on and start the egg laying process all over again. If you do have pets, they should be fitted with flea collars. Any remaining fleas will choose to feed on the animal rather than humans.
