Beat The Massachusetts Flea Infestation With F&W Pest Control
Living in Massachusetts can be a wonderful experience, especially during the summer months. Unfortunately, with the beautiful weather also comes a variety of pests, including fleas. With fleas often comes a lot of itching and confusion: How are these pests getting into your home? Where are they coming from? What is the best way to get rid of them? F&W Pest Control has the answers you’re looking for to rid your Marshfield, MA home of fleas and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Fleas are the most common parasite found on mammals and birds, including humans, cats, and dogs. Fleas can carry and transmit various diseases, and their relentless biting and burrowing can cause serious discomfort to both humans and animals. Additionally, getting rid of fleas can be an annoying and difficult process. The good news is that, with prompt and effective treatment, it is possible to rid your home of fleas and leave your family free from this nuisance pest.
Fleas are small, dark brown or reddish-brown pests with long legs that allow them to jump long distances relatively quickly. They have flat, almost oval-shaped bodies and can be difficult to see, even when moving on the fur of a pet or person. They may also leave itchy bite marks on a human’s skin, as well as signs of tiny red welts or pinpoint spots caused by their saliva.
The flea life cycle is particularly complicated, and can help explain how these tiny pests gain such a foothold in homes. The adult flea, which is the only stage that infests humans and pets, lays eggs on the host animal’s fur. Death happens quickly for these parasites, which is why flea control should begin as soon as the infestation is noticed.
The flea eggs then hatch, landing on the floor as larvae. They crawl until they find a warm, moist spot to pupate. This is where they transform into adult fleas, ready to jump and bite off of their host. The entire life cycle can take place in as few as 10 days, so the problem can multiply quickly if not dealt with quickly and efficiently.
