The Dangers of Flea Infestations in Homes and Businesses

Many homeowners and business owners assume that fleas are only a problem for pets. However, this is not the case. Fleas can enter your home or business in a variety of ways, and even if you don’t have pets, you can still experience a flea infestation.

Sources of Flea Infestations

Fleas can travel on pets, clothing, and even on people. For example, you could unknowingly pick up fleas from a friend’s pet or from public transportation where someone else had a pet. Fleas can attach themselves to a person’s clothing and then jump onto an office chair, a theater seat, or a hotel bed, among other things.

The Danger of Flea Infestations

One of the dangers of flea infestations is that they can go unnoticed for a long time. Flea bites can also be extremely unpleasant and cause swelling and itching for days or weeks. Additionally, fleas are rarely alone. If you see one flea, there are likely many more nearby.

Fleas can also carry diseases, including the bubonic plague, spotted fever, typhus, and cat scratch fever. These illnesses can have a significant impact on your health and well-being, as well as that of your pets.

Getting Rid of Flea Infestations

Fleas are difficult to get rid of because they move around quickly and are resistant to many pest control measures. While washing clothes and vacuuming regularly can help, it may not be enough to eliminate a flea infestation.

The best way to deal with a flea infestation is through fumigation or heat treatment. These methods should be performed by a professional pest control company to ensure that the fleas are completely eradicated.
