Which Fleas Are Common In Our Area?
Philly is home to several species of fleas, but some are more prevalent than others. In general, the most common species in our area is the cat flea. Since they’re called cat fleas, some people believe they only target cats. However, this isn’t the case. They target an assortment of animals, including cats, dogs, foxes, skunks, and other animals. These pests are going to target people and pets. They’re flat and thin so they can easily slip between body hair and fur without being delayed. You can try grabbing them between your fingers, but it won’t happen. These fleas can sometimes enter homes even if you don’t have pets.
Flea Bite Issues
Fleas bite and spread serious illnesses. Your pet will scratch constantly and that can lead to hair loss. They may also experience flea allergy dermatitis. If the problem is untreated, it could lead to anemia, severe blood loss, and death. As mentioned above, they can spread tapeworms to pets too.
Stopping Future Flea Infestations
Unfortunately, it is hard to get rid of flea infestations. The good news is that keeping them away from your property and pets won’t be too difficult.
