Pet owners need to be concerned about fleas because they can ruin the lives of their pets. Homeowners need to be ready for potential flea infestations. Fleas are dangerous to pets and humans since they can transmit dangerous diseases. In addition to this, they’re going to be a nuisance, and they’ll make it difficult for you to sleep comfortably at night.
Common Fleas In Charlotte
Remember that the type of flea you’re dealing with will impact how you should get rid of it. In our service area, we primarily deal with Cat Flea infestations. Adult cat fleas often reach an eighth of an inch in length. They’re very flat and will resemble the thinness of a credit card when looking at them from above. Their size guarantees that they’ll be able to slide through hair and grass easily. Despite being referred to as cat fleas, it is vital to realize that they’re going to impact a variety of animals, including raccoons, skunks, foxes, dogs, and cats. Although they can enter homes without pets, it doesn’t happen often.
