Montgomery County Flea Control

Fly

If you are not too familiar with what fleas are, consider yourself fortunate. These tiny insects are hearty and extremely agile. Fleas are parasitic, and they feed from the blood of their host. They are quick jumpers and hard to catch. They are even harder to kill because they can withstand human weight without ever being harmed.

Fleas lay about 20 eggs at one time. The larva remains with the female flea, and in just a couple of weeks, the eggs break open and the flea hatches. During her lifetime, the female flea can produce more than 500 eggs. The flea can go a long time without feeding, so it can take them a long time to die.

Fleas in You Home

Animals and humans become very frustrated because of fleas. Not only do they have a painful and itchy bite, animals can be allergic to fleas and experience seizures if they become infested. Once infested with fleas, frequent scratching and biting can cause loss of hair and skin infections. If the infection becomes serious, the animal can lose too much blood and become anemic. Fleas can easily spread their diseases. The most popular and deadly one is bubonic plague.

You know that your home is infested with fleas when everyone is complaining of having irritating flea bites and dealing with the itching that goes along with it.
