There are many types of fleas, however, the most common is the cat flea. The name is deceptive, though, as cat fleas can feed on many host organisms such as deer, rabbits, raccoons, squirrels, dogs and humans.
How did my pet get fleas?
Any type of pet has the potential of carrying fleas with them, especially when they’re exposed to other pets. Such places could be doggy daycare, pet grooming locations, pet hotels and dog parks.
Once your pet is exposed, it could potentially carry the fleas right back to your home, and that is when they start breeding and infesting your home. Wonder if you have a flea infestation problem, contact your local pest control company, Bugs by Brian®. for a no obligation inspection and estimate.
What do I do if I have a flea infestation?
Let’s first get into more information on the flea infestation. Normally the infestation is not concentrated in one area of your home. With pets, most of the time, they have the run of the home. Which means they have the capability of carrying the fleas throughout your home. So, when you start preparing to rid your home of fleas, you want to focus on the whole house and your pets at the same time.
