Can I Get a Flea Infestation If I Don’t Have Pets?
A very common misconception is that a home without pets cannot be infested with fleas. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case. Whether or not you have pets, fleas can find their way in. If they aren’t brought into a home by your dogs or cats, it is common for fleas to hitch a ride on rats and mice. It is also possible for stray dogs or cats that are infected with fleas to introduce them to your home after visiting your porch, deck, or any area around your doors. Lastly, it is possible to pick up fleas from an infested home. These tiny insects can latch onto your clothing until they are in your home.
Signs of a Flea Infestation in Your Home
Because fleas are so small, identifying an infestation can be a little tricky.
Common signs of a flea infestation include:
- You spot tiny reddish-brown insects hopping around in curtains or carpeting
- You have unexplained irritating red bites on your body
- Your pet is itching or licking uncontrollably
- There are small, dot-like insects in your pet’s fur
If you suspect you have an infestation, reach out to Greenix Pest Control. These pests don’t travel or live alone, so if you spot one, there are definitely more around. Our team can effectively eliminate these insects so you can regain control over your home.
Are Fleas Dangerous?
Not only are fleas irritating but they are actually quite dangerous. Fleas are parasites that feed on hosts, which can result in itchy, painful bites and rashes, allergic reactions, and even certain diseases. While fleas prefer to feed on animals, they will occasionally feed on humans. When bitten by an infected flea, a human can contract whatever disease that flea carries.
A few of the most common flea-borne diseases and illnesses include:
- Cat-scratch disease
If you are feeling unwell after being bitten by fleas, it is important that you seek medical attention right away.
