About Fleas

There are over 250 flea species in North America, and these pests are commonly found on animals and in homes with pets. They’re usually between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch long as adults and are dark in color. Fleas jump onto their host and feed on their blood, and while they cannot live on humans, fleas do bite people. This pest’s quick breeding ability make them challenging to remove without help.

Fleas can transfer tapeworms and other parasites to your pets, and their bite can be irritating to humans. Flea infestations occur quickly if pets are untreated, and they can be very difficult to remove.

Detecting Fleas

If fleas are present in your home, the first warning sign is usually finding flea dirt — fecal matter resembling black pepper or pencil erasings — around your house or seeing your pet frequently itching themselves. Fleas are visible to the human eye, so you may also see them jumping or feel them biting your skin.

Preventing Fleas

The best way to help prevent fleas from infesting your home is using a monthly protection medication from your veterinarian on your pets. You can also help keep flea populations low by disrupting their life cycles with frequent cleaning or vacuuming of carpets and pet beds.
