Everything You Need To Know About Fleas

Fleas are the most common parasite found on pets. They cause irritation and itching to pets and make them prone to health problems. They also spread viruses and diseases through bites, making pets susceptible to illnesses like rabies. Fleas are a common annoyance, but you shouldn't have to worry about hiring an exterminator. Jamison Pest and Lawn provides effective treatments that get rid of these tiny pests without dangerous chemicals.


What Do Fleas Look Like?

A flea is an insect that sucks blood from mammals and birds. Fleas are 2.5 mm long and reddish-brown. They have a hard shell made of proteins, making them hard to crush between your fingers. Fleas can transmit bacteria, viruses, and parasites when taking a blood meal from a host or via fecal contamination.


How Did I Get Fleas?

A pet typically causes flea infestations.

The insects attach themselves to the animal while outdoors, then move onto the fur and bedding of its living space indoors. Flea prevention is difficult unless you're proactive with the problem. A flea infestation affects not just your pet but also your home and yard. Without proper flea prevention, any pet owner is vulnerable to an infestation.
