Fleas At Home: Why You Should Get Them under Control

Fleas are tiny making them hard to be noticed in the fur of the dogs and also on the carpet inside your living room. But do you know that these little parasites are a hell of a menace?! They are carriers of disease agents – transmitting diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Ehrlichia.

Fleas are arachnids, closely related to spiders and scorpions than insects. Presence of these filthy parasites makes it important to get flea treatment for home.

There are about 850 flea species, most of them are capable of transmitting harmful diseases. Fleas look gross! They are on a rise during the summers, making Sunshine coast an ideal climate for their survival and reproduction.

The reproduction rate of the fleas is quite high. In 3 weeks, a single flea can pass through its entire life cycle and lays around 1000 eggs. In the next weeks, these eggs hatch and each flea lays 1000 eggs. So basically, the population gets around 1 million new fleas within 6 weeks.

In such a situation flea treatment becomes necessary as increasing flea population means an open invitation to diseases. Presence of fleas at your home means a potential risk to the health of your pets, possibly a severe flea infestation can even lead to their death. Fleas feed so much on your pets that their RBC count decreases leading to anemia, weakness, and ultimately to death if not treated.

It becomes necessary to get rid of fleas in house. Fleas can survive tough situations as they love extreme heat and moisture. Fleas love to live and lay eggs under the carpet and in the corners of rooms. Flea pupae in their cocooned state often survive in kitchen, basement, and the lawn. While fleas are undisturbed and even without a blood meal, a flea can survive beyond 100 days. It is necessary for flea treatment to get rid of these blood-sucking vampire species, which are the agents of diseases for humans and pets.
