Expert Hale Flea Treatment Services

Flea control is necessary not only for sanitary purposes but also to prevent a number of health problems. These diseases affect both human beings and pets. The best way to prevent these diseases is to encourage flea removal by a professional, Don't waste your money on DIY methods, otherwise, you may have to deal with issues such as:

Allergy Reactions

Cat and dog fleasNormally, you can expect little ‘bug bites’ on the skin when a flea bites you. However, if you are allergic to flea’s saliva, then you will have to deal with much more than that. Animals or people who are allergic to flea’s saliva develop severe skin irritations when they are bitten by fleas. Worsening matters is the fact that the flea-bite sites can also be infected (by bacteria and other microorganisms) and develop into a serious skin condition called flea allergy dermatitis.

Scratching (or, in the case of a dog or a cat, licking) the affected area only worsens the condition. If you ever develop such a symptom as a result of a flea infestation, then your best course of action is to contact Young’s Pest Control for Hale flea treatment services.

Worm Infections

Apart from allergic reactions, fleas can also contribute to the spread of worms in human beings and pets. It is known that flea larvae use tapeworm eggs as their food, which means fleas typically carry the parasites. They can spread the parasites to pets (when the pets lick themselves to groom) or to babies who like picking up objects on the floor and putting them into their mouths.

When this happens, then the animal or the baby (or even some adults) develop worm infection. The symptoms of worm infection are many and varied, but they include:

• Loss of appetite
• Abdominal pain
• Weight loss
• Diarrhoea

Even if you treat the worm infection but you do not get rid of the fleas, you will still face this and other flea problems in the future. The only way to prevent a recurrence is to call for Hale flea treatment.

Flea Anaemia

If you have not had flea fumigation in your house for a long time, then your animals may also develop flea anaemia. This may seem far-fetched, but it is a reality. The more fleas attack your pets, the more blood they will drink and leave the animals anaemic.

Your pet friend, especially the young ones or small pets (such as cats and rabbits), may be suffering from anaemia if it develops these symptoms:

• Have pale gums
• Are Tired
• Weak
• Decreased appetite
• Skin discolouration

Again, flea control is the best way of preventing such dangerous complications.

Blood Parasites

FleaLastly, you should also know that flea infestation can also spread blood parasites in animals and human beings. An example of a parasite that a flea can spread is hemobartonella, a blood parasite that attacks and destroys the red blood cells.

Those who are affected by the parasite need a blood transfusion and hospital care. Treating the disease without eliminating the fleas only serve to postpone the problem. You can save yourself from such expenses (and pain) by calling for our Hale flea treatment.

As you can see from the above discussions, flea removal is a worthwhile investment. In fact, it is best to let the professionals handle the fumigation process because they know the right methods and techniques of ridding your house of fleas.
