Flea Control for Bay Area Residents

closeup of flea on fingerFleas include 2,500 species of small, flightless insects that survive as external parasites of mammals and birds — making pet owners common culprits of this pest.

Fleas live by consuming blood from their hosts. Adult fleas grow to about 1⁄8 inch long, are usually brown, and have bodies that are “flattened” sideways or narrow, enabling them to move through their host’s fur or feathers.

With their ability to jump, fleas can move rapidly between various hosts. Identifying and eliminating a flea infestation can be a challenge. The best way to protect you and your family from a flea infestation is to call the professional flea control experts at We Care Pest Solutions.

Signs of Fleas in Your Home

If you own a cat, dog, or other animal, you might already be constantly on the lookout for signs of fleas. One of the most common ways to tell if fleas have made their way onto your pet and into your home is noticing your animal constantly scratching or grooming themselves. They are doing their best to get rid of the problem on their own, but this will only cause the fleas to jump off the animal and to other areas of your home.

One of the most uncomfortable signs of fleas in your home are flea bites. Fleas can bite humans, which can result in itchiness, discomfort, and rashes. It is important to consult your doctor to determine if and how you reacting to flea bites or another allergic reaction.
