Freedom from fleadom – take back your home from these tiny blood suckers

  1. 1. Freedom from Fleadom Take back your home from these tiny blood suckers!
  2. 2. Fleas Really Are a Concern Wondering if fleas are actually a problem? After all, they only affect pets, right? Wrong! They can bite you just as easily as they can bite your pets, and they cause a number of different illnesses in the process.
  3. 3. What Does a Flea Look Like? With more than 2,000 different species of fleas, it can be tough to spot one if you’re unfamiliar with them. The single most common type is the cat flea, and they tend to be less than 1/8 of an inch in length. They are typically a red or brown, and they don’t have any wings. In most cases, they look a bit like a flattened coin.
  4. 4. The Life of a Flea Under ideal circumstances, fleas attach themselves to a host, then stay for up to a month. Females need fresh blood to produce eggs, and once she gets it, she can lay as many as fifty eggs in a given day. When the eggs hatch, the larvae are eyeless and legless, and they stay that way until they’re adults, or eight days after hatching. Once in the cocoon they build, though, they can stay there for twelve months if the conditions are quite right to come out.
  5. 5. Pets or No Pets Even homes without pets can get fleas, and either way, you have to have the entire home treated. If you do have a pet, once the eggs are laid, they fall off in even the most unlikely spots. What’s more, though, is that the cocoons resist almost all treatment methods.
  6. 6. Preventing Fleas The best way to make sure you don’t have flea in your home is to treat pets regularly. If you don’t have any pets, be on the lookout for fleas on secondhand furniture or newly installed carpet. Additionally, other kinds of infestations, like rodents, can introduce flea problems to your home. Keep in mind that even pets in the yard can be a problem when it comes to fleas, as you can carry the eggs, or the fleas themselves, in on your clothes.
  7. 7. DIY Treatment Methods There are plenty of DIY sprays on the market today, but with fleas, this is not the way you want to go. While they might kill the fleas you see, they certainly won’t kill the eggs, leading to an ongoing problem.
