It is absolutely fun to have your pets around. But the fun ends when you find fleas in their fur, either in the head or some parts of their body.
In Australia, these parasites feed on the fresh blood of humans, dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, ferrets, mice and rats. Even if you can keep your pets clean all the time to avoid getting fleas, you can never be sure as they also interact with other animals.
A flea bite may cause itch, swelling and skin irritation. These parasites can also transmit diseases to their hosts. In the past, fleas were known to have helped cause the bubonic plague.
You’ll be needing a pest control company to help you with making sure your home is flea-free.
