A flea infestation can be a nightmare for any home or apartment owner. Not only can these little insects cause itching and irritation in humans and pets, but they can also multiply rapidly and infest the whole house. If you’ve noticed signs of a flea infestation in your home, it’s important to take immediate action to get rid of them.
What causes a flea infestation in a house?
A flea infestation in a home can be caused by several factors. First, domestic animals, such as dogs and cats, are the main carriers. If your pet has any, it’s likely they left some in your home. These insects lay their eggs on animal hair, which then falls onto carpets, furniture, linens and other surfaces where they can thrive.
Then, if your garden or yard is infested, they may enter your home. Fleas can jump on clothes or shoes of people outside and be carried indoors. If you have guests who have pets, it’s possible their pets may be infesting your home.
Finally, these insects thrive in warm, humid places. If your home has these conditions, they may grow faster.
What signs indicate that my house is invaded by fleas?
Here are some signs that may indicate that your home has been invaded by these insects:
- Bites: These can appear as small red, irritated, itchy bumps. They are often grouped together and may be present on the feet, legs, ankles or waist area;
- Pets that scratch: this may be a sign that they have fleas. These feed on the blood of pets and can cause itching and irritation;
- Dark spots: Fleas often leave dark marks of their feces on sheets, carpets, furniture, and other surfaces where they feed;
- Live fleas: if you see them jumping on your skin, on furniture or on pets, this indicates a heavy infestation;
- Larvae: These can be found in carpets, furniture, floor cracks and other places where these insects lay their eggs. The larvae are white and about 1-5 mm long.
If you notice one or more of these signs, your home is likely infested. It is important to take immediate action to eliminate fleas and prevent them from multiplying and causing health problems and itching in humans and pets.
