It is hard to imagine that something so small can be so painful. However, there is always a solution for your problem.
Fleas are one of the more important groups of insect pests because they not only cause pain by biting, but can transmit several diseases such as Bubonic Plague, murine typhus, and tapeworm to humans. There are different species such as the cat flea, dog flea, human flea, and rat flea that can be found throughout the United States.
It is not necessary to have pets in your home in order to have a flea infestation. Fleas can be present even if the home has been vacant of animals and people for as long as 6 months.
Fleas are normally found in the interior of the home through pet infestation. Fleas are typically found where animals sleep or frequent. Normally, larvae and pupae will be found in similar places but especially in areas with high moisture which is necessary for their survival. Such places include both indoor and outdoor environments. Fleas are also found on other hosts such as rabbits, skunks, opossums, rats, raccoons, and even birds.
Every case is different. Using a professional is the key to a successful treatment, that is why Structural Pest Management is here for you.
