Winning The Battle Against Fleas In Your Plymouth Home


If your pets can't stop scratching, or you are seeing bites on your family's skin, you might have a flea infestation in your home. Flea problems are often associated with pets, but wild animals traveling through your property can also lead to infestations in homes without pets. This guide will help you learn more about flea pest control in Plymouth and the best way to eliminate these pests for good.

This blog will explain how to tell if you have fleas in your home and review the health hazards they pose for your family and pets. Learn the best way to get rid of fleas and prevent them from coming back with the experts at Combat Pest Control.

How To Tell If It's Fleas In Your Home

Flea bites on humans or pets are usually the first indication of an infestation. Bites are generally in a line of three or four and appear as red itchy bumps with a halo around the center. Other than bites, you might see the insects themselves, which have a flat shape, are dark or reddish-brown, and between 1/12 and 1/6 of an inch long. 

If you suspect a flea infestation in your home, it is best to contact a professional pest control company for assistance in eliminating them. The longer fleas are in your house, the worse the problem will become. Contact us today at Combat Pest Control for help getting rid of fleas and keeping them out.

Fleas Are A Health Hazard To Both People And Pets

Fleas in your house present a health hazard to your family and pets. Fleas are parasitic insects, and when feeding on an animal, they can pick up a pathogen and carry the illness to the next person or animal they bite. Fleas can cause several health problems, including:

  • Bartonellosis
  • Murine typhus
  • Tungiasis
  • Tularemia
  • Tapeworm
  • Anemia

Flea saliva can also cause flea allergy dermatitis in pets, and their debris can cause similar reactions in humans. The best way to prevent the spread of illnesses is to eliminate fleas quickly.
