Fleas are not only pests that will latch themselves onto the back of a cat or dog, they can also latch themselves onto humans. Having a flea infested house is unsanitary, annoying and potentially dangerous, which is why it is essential to eradicate these pests as soon as possible.

Getting Rid Of Pet Fleas

Fleas will probe the skin of any warm blooded host, such as a dog, cat or human, and will draw blood out for a period of time which can cause intense itchiness or even disease if the flea has moved from an infected host. Luckily, pet fleas are quite easy to control through the use of flea collars, medications and flea control shampoos. If you stay on top of a flea control routine with your pet your home should be flea-free in no time.
