Fleas are tiny insects that eat human and animal blood exclusively. Frequently, your house becomes infested with fleas due to your pets carrying the fleas in on their bodies. If your pet is excessively scratching, you should examine its body for fleas. Infected animals will lose hair and have reddened skin. Immediately contact your veterinarian if you have found visible insects moving between hairs on your pet’s body to talk about your flea treatment options to eliminate the fleas.
Fleas bite because they feed on animal and human blood. Flea bites are extremely itchy and look like red spots surrounded by a red halo on humans. If you have been bitten by a flea, wash the bite, use an antiseptic, and then apply an icepack.
Once a flea infestation has been detected, you must thoroughly clean the inside of the home by vacuuming all carpets, sweeping and mopping hard-surfaced floors, and washing all linens and bedding. If wildlife animals live around the home or if the homeowner’s pets live outside, those areas also need to be treated so that the homeowner does not bring fleas into the home from the outside.
