People often associate fleas with itchy pets who need to wear flea collars and take special baths, but humans can also be bitten by fleas. Infestations of the pest can cause homeowners and their pets to suffer from dozens of small, itchy bites. Getting rid of an infestation of fleas that has taken hold in a home is a difficult task that should be completed by a professional pest control company.

Issues With Fleas

Flea infestations can occur when these parasitic pests feed on household pets. The fleas that are burrowed in the fur of these animals are then able to make their way into a home, and flea populations may explode when the parasites are able to find more than one source of food.

The parasitic nature of fleas means that these pests bite humans and animals in order to feed on blood. These bites result in itchy bumps that are extremely irritating. Some animals have an allergic reaction to flea bites that makes these bites even more itchy than normal. These animals typically experience hair loss due to scratching and may even develop sores. Eliminating a flea infestation is a matter of contacting a professional pest control company for help.
