Flea Removal In Santa Ana

Flea problems are not limited to houses that have pets. Squirrels, rodents, raccoons, and other wildlife traveling through yards & trees can drop fleas off anywhere. It is important to keep fleas at bay because they’re known to spread diseases such as typhus. The key to flea control is knowledge of their biology because certain stages of their life cycle can resist the effects of insecticides.

Types of Fleas

Cat Flea

As the name suggests, cat fleas are mostly found on cats but they also attack dogs, other animals and even humans. Their favorite spot inside the home is often the carpet but you may find their eggs anywhere in the house other than on your pets.

Human Flea

Some people may say there is no such thing as flea infestation in humans, but the discovery of the human flea, that is no longer true. The human fleas stick and hide in the body’s most hairy parts such as the underarm and the head. However, you can keep these pests away by observing a strict hygiene practice.

Rat Flea

Because there are many types of fleas that feed on blood, your pet mouse may be a target too and they’re also likely to feed on you as well. Rat fleas have two varieties: the Oriental and the Northern. Oriental rat fleas came from the Orient to America and they typically inhabit the coastal areas and rivers. Northern rat fleas, on the other hand, enjoy the cozy atmosphere of your home so if you spot them, find a way to get rid of them immediately.

Sticktight Flea

This type of flea loves to bury their heads into the skin of almost any animal – dog, cat, bird and yes, humans too. These fleas are quite hard to remove once they have attached themselves onto the skin of their victims. They often cause infections and anemia to young animals and is therefore best to control them as early as possible.

Chicken Flea

This type of flea is usually found with their heads buried in the skin of chickens near the head or face. At first glance, it would look like the fowl’s head or face has black heads but on a closer look, you’ll discover that they’re in fact chicken fleas.

Sand Flea

Among the flea types available, the sand flea appears to look the most unique, more like very tiny shrimps. While they typically feed on mostly organic & withering plants, they would also find blood to be suitable when they attach themselves to pets. Animals are often their vehicle in making their way inside your house.

Springtail Flea

This type of flea belong to a category called Collembola and is also sometimes called the snow flea. They usually stay in damp areas, are small as a pin head but can jump up to four feet. They don’t normally attach themselves to animals unless they find a good reason such as a skin infection that makes the area conducive to their existence because they love anything wet.
