Why Is My Home Infested with Fleas if I Don’t Have Pets?
One of the most common misconceptions about fleas is that you cannot get them if you do not have pets. While it is most common for an infestation to be caused by pets becoming infested with fleas and bringing them into a home, there are other causes.
- Infested stray pets hanging out on your porch and getting close to your door
- Bringing infested furniture into your home
- Spending time in an infested space and bringing fleas back to your home via your clothing, purse, suitcase, etc.
No matter the cause of your infestation, you can count on Greenix Pest Control for a dependable solution. We have encountered and treated countless flea infestations in our years of service and are confident in our ability to treat yours as well.
Do I Have a Flea Infestation?
Because fleas are so tiny, identifying an infestation isn’t always easy.
Signs of a flea infestation include:
- Small, dark specs on your pets
- Pets that are itching uncontrollably
- Small, red bites on your body
- Tiny, dark insects hopping around on your curtains, couches, carpets, rugs, or other furniture
For every flea you see, there could be hundreds of eggs hidden away in your home. The key is to be able to recognize an infestation as soon as possible to make treatment simpler and more effective. If you suspect you’ve got fleas in your home, bring in our Chicago flea control experts right away to get started on taking care of the problem.
Do Fleas Spread Diseases?
While it is not very common, fleas are known to carry and transmit harmful diseases to humans. When infected fleas feed on a host, they can infect said host with whatever disease they may be carrying, including typhus, tularemia, the bubonic plague, and tungiasis.
If you are feeling unwell after being bitten by fleas, it is important that you seek medical assistance right away.
How Can I Prevent Fleas?
Flea infestations are a pain, and it is always best to prevent them so you don’t have to deal with them.
To keep fleas out of your yard, off of your pets, and out of your home, you should:
- Regularly inspect your pets for fleas
- Bathe your pets in flea shampoo
- Vacuum your home regularly
- Wash your pet bedding often
- Trim your trees and shrubs
- Mow your lawn
- Hire a pest control team
Of course, the very best way to protect your home from fleas is to bring in a team of professionals who are equipped with high-quality products and know exactly where to treat your property to prevent an infestation from taking place.
