Tips for Getting Rid of Fleas
Fleas are blood-sucking parasites that take blood meals from humans and pets such as dogs and cats. As a result of the discomfort, the host may scratch the spot where fleas feed on, and this may lead to infections. Fleas are also capable of surviving for long periods in developmental stages until there is a suitable host. The biology and behavioral pattern of fleas determine their control and eradication methods.
Due to their bloodsucking activities, fleas can transfer germs which can lead to diseases. Fleas can be easily picked up by pets from the environment from contact with other pets. Dedicated efforts must thus be made to ensure that fleas are out of homes at all times.
We have highlighted several practices that will prevent the invasion of fleas in homes. Fleas are mostly found in residential buildings, hence our focus on homes. Professional flea exterminators should, however, be contacted when an invasion is noticed.
Regular visits to the vet
Most times, flea infestations are noticed by persistent scratching of pets or on the hair on pets on careful examination. It is, therefore, important to keep pets in the best form of health to prevent flea infestation. Regular visits to the vet will aid in the identification of fleas attached to the hair of pets. This is also very important because fleas can attach the skin of children who play regularly with pets and lead to allergies.
Proper pet hygiene
Maintainance of hygiene of pets is essential for the prevention of flea infestation. Pets love to play outside and with other pests. This exposes them to picking up fleas in the environment. To ensure that fleas are not attached to the hair of pets, they should be bathed regularly, especially after outdoor activities. You should ensure that, as much as possible, your pet is always clean.
Scheduled home cleaning
Fleas, like other insects, go through different stages of development. For fleas, there are the egg, larva, pupa, and adult growth stages. The change from one stage to another is dependent on favorable environmental conditions. Fleas can stay in the pupa form for very long periods until a suitable host is nearby. Pupas of fleas in cocoons are usually found in rugs, carpets, and other floor surfaces.
Regular mopping and vacuuming of homes are necessary in eradicating the cocoons of fleas. Vacuuming is especially important as the pressure sucks up the cocoons of fleas that may be hidden on the surfaces of rugs.
The service of an experienced pest control company is always important in eradicating fleas. This is because professional flea exterminators eradicate fleas, identify hiding places of their cocoons, and install measures to prevent the entry of other household pests which may act as hosts for fleas.
In controlling fleas, the focus is on eradicating the pre-adult and adult fleas as well as preventing their entry. Since fleas require mammals to thrive on, proper hygiene of pets and prevention of the entry of household pests are important factors for the control of fleas. Our goal is to help you keep fleas away; we hope we have been able to do that with this piece.
