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. These include:
- 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.
Do I have a flea infestation?
- 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
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, seek medical assistance right away.
