Fleas are flea-sized parasites that have incredibly resilient and adaptive habits. Found living on cats, dogs, rabbits, and even humans, fleas feast on an animal's blood in order to survive.
Fleas pose a serious threat to the health of humans, pets and other animals. These small flying insects are known for infesting homes and jumps from one host to another. They primarily feed on animal and human blood which put humans at risk for flea-borne illnesses.
Not only can fleas be carriers of flea-borne disease, but flea bites can also cause flea tapeworm, flea-allergy dermatitis, itching, inflammation, and even anemia in some cases.
To prevent flea infestations, you should vacuum your home weekly or bi-weekly and wash your pet's bedding regularly. You can also sprinkle flea powders or sprays on carpets, upholstery, and pet bedding to reduce flea populations in these areas and keep fleas from becoming an issue. If fleas have already taken hold of your home and pets, you will need to treat them with flea repellants designed for their species.
Flea removal can be an arduous task if left unmanaged. Choosing an all-natural flea removal product is an optimal choice for best results. By using all natural flea products, those pesky fleas will be removed without any harm to your precious pets or family members.
