How Can Fleas Enter Your Home?
Fleas commonly enter your household by being carried on pets like dogs and cats. However, they also ride on wildlife creatures like deer and foxes. They infest and feed on rats, mice, squirrels, bats, and birds, all creatures capable of invading homes.
Fleas typically live and feed on animals because fur is easier to hide in. However, this does not mean that fleas do not bite people. They will most likely try to bite you at night when they go unseen. If an infestation spreads, they will bite more frequently.
What Fleas Do to Humans and Pets
Flea bites alone are not dangerous, but their saliva is. Fleas carry bacteria, pathogens, and other organisms and transfer them to people and animals that fleas bite. Some of the most common diseases you may contract from fleas include:
- Murine typhus
- Cat-Scratch Disease
Fleas are not pests that you want around your property. To combat these dangerous pests, contact Scientific Plant Service for excellent Baltimore flea control.
