Common Flea Types In Your Area
Since you live in our service area, you’re most likely going to encounter the same type of flea as our other competitors. In particular, our clients enter cat fleas. Don’t be mistaken. Despite the name, cat fleas are problematic for other animals too. For instance, they often target dogs, raccoons, skunks, foxes, and more. They’re difficult to deal with because they’re thin, fast, and difficult to grab. If you attempt to snatch them using your fingers, they will jump out of your gasp. They’re only an eighth of an inch in length and very thin.
If you look at them from above, they’ll look like a credit card. The best way to tackle a flea infestation is by teaming up with qualified experts. Remember that our team is always here to help you. Just give us a call and we’ll begin working hard to resolve this issue for you promptly.
Worried About Flea Bites?
You should be worried about flea bites because they can lead to major issues soon or later. If you’re being bitten, you’re going to develop nasty welts. If your pet is targeted, the problems are going to be immensely worse. For instance, a pet may experience flea allergy dermatitis that can cause it to lose its hair. Typically, this happens due to the flea’s saliva. If you’re dealing with a heavy infestation, the risks are much higher. Pets can experience anemia, severe blood loss, and more. In some cases, a flea infestation could be fatal. You’ll also have to worry about the fleas spreading tapeworms.
