Flea Control in Alabama

Do You Have Fleas? You might, and you may not even know it. Contrary to popular belief, they aren't only reserved for man's best friend; they're actually common household pests. Though their main target is your dog or cat, fleas bite human legs, ankles, and feet and even live on your furniture. There's no need to pack up your home and move just yet, though. There are many responsible and effective methods for removal at your disposal with a certified pest control expert.

How Did I Get Fleas?

Though many believe fleas are attracted to dirty animals and messy houses, nothing could be further from the truth. They do not discriminate and can end up in even the most immaculate homes. So, how did you get them in your spotless house? The answer isn't so simple. While pets are the most common rides inside for fleas, they have other forms of transportation. Household rodents such as mice, squirrels, or other animals can carry them inside your home through attics and air ducts, or they may have hitched a ride on another household visitor: yourself. Dog fleas have an impressive vertical leap (up to 7 inches), which makes it easy for them to latch onto pants, shoes, or socks.

Signs You May Have A Flea Infestation

How do you know if that itch on your leg is a sign of something much worse? Don't worry; plenty of signs can alert you of your flea infestation. 

  • Though they are extremely small, they're not invisible to the naked eye. Seeing them jump on furniture, carpets, or even your pets is a tell-tale sign of an infestation.
  • Even if you don't catch them in the act of biting or jumping, you may catch them living on your pet's skin. Look out for multiple small dot-shaped insects in your pet's fur when petting them or during their next bath.
  • As parasites, they feed on blood to survive. Abnormal scratching from you or your pet, or red itchy bumps on your skin may signify that these pesky pests have bitten you.
  • Nature calls, even for fleas. Tiny specks on your pet may be signs of excrement and often look like ground black pepper. This is a mixture of dried blood and waste left behind on furniture or your pet's skin.
