We hug our dogs or cats and let them sleep with us on our beds and live with us on our homes. So when they get itchy we most of the time get itchy too. And I know how irritating it is for you.
It is because when they get into our house on the backsides of our dog or cat, they too target us causing itchy bites as they feed on blood. And a home infestation is caused when fleas hatch from eggs in our home.
Even if you do not have pets in your home, you can still have a flea infestation that may come from a friend’s dog who visits your house or a neighbour’s cat who visits your house (with or without your permission).
Treating your pet
And if you have not been treating your pet then these will breed and lay eggs in your pet’s coat which naturally fall out wherever they go and will hatch. It is important to understand that fleas will persist if you only address one or two locations where they are breeding If the pet spends a lot of time both inside and out, then consider treating the pet, yard and home.
that flea control is egg control. If you stop the eggs from developing on the pet, in the yard and in the home – you can’t have them!
Fleas are a class of wingless insects from the order Siphonaptera; they are parasites that live exclusively by hematophagy, the consumption of blood from a host organism. There are more than 2,000 species of fleas, and through evolution they have adapted to feeding on an extremely specific variety of hosts. There are cat fleas, dog fleas, and human fleas, as well as some that feed exclusively on singular species of rats, birds, and other animals—talk about being a picky eater!
