Rid Your Indianapolis Home of Fleas
How did fleas get into my Indianapolis home?It’s a common misconception that you can only get fleas in your house if you have pets, but fleas can jump quite far relative to their body size making it easy to invite themselves in from the outside. Fleas can also enter your home by hitching a ride on other pests like rats and mice. Once inside they’ll quickly get to work laying eggs in your furniture, making your small flea problem a big one. Avoid taking in stray animals (we know they’re cute) since they could be infested with fleas or picking up old furniture from the curb. It may not have had fleas when it was set outside, but prolonged exposure to the elements can invite all sorts of pests.
Signs of a Flea Infestation
- Dark specs on your pets
- Uncontrollable itching
- Small, red bites on your body
- Tiny, dark insects hopping around on your curtains, couches, carpets, rugs, or other furniture
Can fleas spread diseases?The short answer is yes. Fleas have been known to carry and transmit harmful diseases such as typhus, tularemia, the bubonic plague, and tungiasis. Fleas are no laughing matter. If you believe you’ve been bitten by a flea and aren’t feeling well, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Preventing Fleas in Indianapolis
- Regularly inspecting your pets for fleas and applying a flea prevention treatment if your pets spend a lot of time outdoors.
- Using a medicated flea shampoo if your pets become infected.
- Regularly vacuum your home, taking extra care when vacuuming cushions.
- Routinely wash your and your pet’s bedding. Washing your bedding is even more important if your pets sleep in bed with you.
- Mowing your lawn and keeping trees and shrubs trimmed back.
