What Are Fleas?


Fleas are very bothersome pests. They generally invade your home in the hair of your dog or cat, but they can also just hop right under your doorway. They can get on your socks or pants when you are visiting a friend whose pets have fleas. They are very agile. They can hop from the ground to a dog or from a dog to a person.

Once fleas get inside your home, they nestle down inside your carpet, in your furniture or in the cracks of your walls. They breed quickly and will soon infest your entire home. In the worst cases, they can be seen hopping about when you’re watching television if they’re between the screen and you. You might also find them in the bathtub while you’re taking a bath.

Fleas make a pet’s life miserable, but they don’t stop there. They will also bite people, especially children who crawl or play on the carpeting. They suck your blood and cause nasty little bumps that itch. These bumps can get infected if they’re scratched aggressively. Fleas also can spread several types of bacteria and viruses.
