Stress With Fleas?
If you’ve ever even thought that there might be fleas in your home, you know that gross, skin-crawling feeling you get. But, even with the best defences, fleas can still get in your house. It’s possibly for pets to pick up fleas anywhere, out for a walk, or the park, or interacting with other animals.

And now that they are here – they are not easy to get rid of! That’s why they are “pests.” Even without pets, fleas can appear, so stay vigilant! Pest control fleas is not an easy task, and is usually one that should be left for professionals to be sure they won’t return.
Why Fleas Invade Your Property
Fleas don’t necessarily choose your property they are beasts of opportunity. If they just so happen to land on your pet or are carried inside by some other means, they may not have necessarily chosen to do so. Fleas can also travel on other pests, such as mice, rats, possums or larger insects. Sometimes, there’s nothing you can do to prevent them and you just need to be aware so you can stop it before it becomes an infestation.
Dangers Caused By Their Invasion
Normally, fleas are not dangerous to humans. They are more of a pest than a danger. If you are bitten by a flea, it won’t typically require treatment, or at worst a mild cortisone cream or antibiotic ointment. The primary danger they pose is to your pets. Fleas carry diseases which are transferred by biting and can also lead to problems like tapeworms, hair loss or skin irritations.
Why You Need A Professional To Help With Their Removal
Removing fleas from your house is not so simple as washing and cleaning your pet’s bedding and vacuuming the carpets. Proper removal of this pest requires a multifaceted treatment plan, one that addresses more than just the fleas plaguing your beloved pet. Clearing a house of fleas requires both chemical and physical procedures.
It is possible to try and remove them from your home on your own, but there is no guarantee you will get them all. And if even one or two are left over, the whole infestation can begin again, thus putting your pets at risk.
