Frequently Asked Questions About Fleas
Will Flea Bites Hurt Anyone?
Some people and pets are very sensitive to flea bites and scratching bites can lead to infection. Fleas also transmit tapeworms and a variety of diseases including bubonic plague.
Are Fleas Difficult To Control?
Fleas can be very difficult to control, especially if your cat or dog roams outside your home. Pets can spread fleas wherever they go. Once fleas get established, a thorough treatment is needed. This usually means treating the carpet, upholstered furniture, pet bedding and your lawn. Contact your veterinarian for advice on a variety of techniques to keep your pets flea free.
How Effective Are Flea Bombs And Flea Collars?
Flea bombs provide temporary relief for fleas, but they do not usually kill flea eggs and pupae. They leave no residue to kill these pests when they hatch. Flea collars for your pet reduce flea problems, but rarely eliminates fleas.
What Can I Do To Control Fleas?
Eliminating fleas on your pet will help keep them out of your home. Also wash or vacuum pet sleeping and eating areas regularly. During the peak flea months, usually June to September, do not allow your pets to roam freely or be in contact with other animals. If you cannot restrict your pets, then you or your vet should treat them regularly.
