San Antonio Flea Control

Cat flea_full_of_human_bloodFleas are one of the most common and troublesome pests around the home. Households with pets are particularly susceptible to infestation. The tiny flea feeds on animal and human blood and leaves behind an itchy and sometimes infected bite.

Dangers of Flea Infestation

Fleas are disease vectors that can carry plague and murine typhus fever. They can also transmit tapeworms to pets and occasionally humans. Pets get tapeworms from ingesting contaminated fleas and can easily become reinfected after treatment if an infestation remains.

Signs of flea infestation include the appearance of flea dirt, or tiny dark grains, on pets and surfaces. Flea dirt is actually the remnant of the flea's blood meal and serves to nourish the larvae. Another sign is the presence of tapeworm segments, which look like tiny grains of white rice, in pet feces. At this point, the cycle of infestation has taken root in the home and requires immediate action.

How Fleas Infest San Antonio Homes

Fleas commonly enter a home on pets that have been outdoors. However, even indoor pets can become infested. Fleas can crawl through small openings or attach to clothes or shoes worn outside. Once inside, they breed rapidly and can seemingly multiply overnight.

Fleas like a warm and humid environment, which makes the San Antonio area a prime breeding ground. They flourish throughout the spring, summer and fall months but can survive mild winters. The Southwest region frequently suffers year-round infestations, and pet owners need to stay vigilant.
