Fleas are parasites that live in your garden, yard and other outside areas and can easily enter your home by attaching to your pets. Cats, dogs and other domesticated animals bring fleas inside providing them with blood to feed and reproduce. Once inside, fleas produce larvae that get deposited in carpeted areas and grow into adult pests that can become nuisance to both pets and humans.
Fleas are known to cause allergies in humans, as well as to carry various diseases, such as typhus. A comprehensive flea control will involve taking care of your current infestation, eliminating fleas outside the house, as well as treating the pets. To keep the fleas away, be sure to keep carpets and upholstery as clean as possible and monitor your pets.
