More information about common pests:
On the surface, the flea may seem like a humble creature, something that imaginary circuses are made of and cartoon dogs scratch at profusely. But the reality of the flea can actually be quite upsetting and difficult to deal with. Fortunately, termite treatment services aren’t all that pest controllers are good for; they can help you to get rid of these ankle biting little pests as well.
Determining if Your Pet or Home has Fleas
A flea is a tiny little bug, a fraction the size of termites, about the size of the tip of a pencil. Fleas live on furry animals and bite them to feed on their blood. Fleas can jump insanely high; a human sized flea could jump over a skyscraper. These bouncy little vampires can drive your dog or cat crazy by biting them and leaving little itchy bumps. These bites are usually not dangerous, but they are as annoying to your pet as a mosquito bite, and the itch can cause your animal to lick and bite hairless spots into their fur and sores on their skin.
In addition, when your pet gets fleas those fleas eventually lay eggs. Do you know where? Oh, not usually on your pet, but instead, in your carpeting and furniture. Before you know it, your house is infested, and when that happens it is extremely difficult and time consuming to stop the invasion.
How can you tell if you have fleas on your pet or in your home? First, watch your pet for signs of scratching. If your pet is scratching or biting more than usual then fleas are a possibility. Check your animal carefully, searching their fur for fleas and flea dirt (read: flea feces). This flea dirt looks like coffee grounds, but if you put it into water it melts and turns red because it is mostly made of blood.
A flea comb can be a great way to check your pet for fleas. They are inexpensive and easy to use. Comb around the base of the neck and the base of the tail, as these are areas where fleas love to hang out. If you find just a few fleas then you may have time to treat just your pet with a flea killer and preventative. If you find more than 8-10 fleas then you may have a more serious problem and you’ll want to have a pest control expert come out and take a look.
