How to spot an infestation

• Fleas excrete dried up blood so this will be present around the house on infested pets, carpets and furniture.
• Pets will scratch a lot more than usual.

If any of these signs present themselves, it’s better to be proactive about stopping the spread of this pest by calling Young’s Pest Control for Standish flea treatment. Once a flea population takes hold of a home, they will reproduce at a fast rate, owing to the ideal warm conditions of most centrally heated homes.

Infestations can be both irritating and dangerous

Cat and dog fleasThe most likely culprit of a flea infestation is either the cat flea or the dog flea, both of which will bite humans in the absence of a preferred host. Should this happen, it can be quite irritating as flea bites are itchy and show up as red marks.

However, a more serious risk from flea bites is the exposure to diseases and parasites, whether indirectly or directly. One indirect risk of exposure is when infested cats, especially young kittens, scratch humans and transmit “cat scratch disease,” which is caused by a bacterium found on the claws of infested cats in flea droppings.
