How Dangerous are Fleas to Humans & Pets?
Fleas can be dangerous to both humans and pets like dogs, as they are known to transmit diseases and cause skin irritations. The are also challenging to eradicate with DIY solutions as they lay thousands of eggs, often in hidden areas, that are very hard to see with the naked eye.
One of the most common diseases that fleas can transmit to pets is tapeworms. When dogs or other pets ingest fleas while grooming themselves, they may also swallow tapeworm eggs that the fleas carry. These eggs can then hatch in the pet’s digestive system, leading to symptoms such as weight loss, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Fleas can also transmit diseases such as cat scratch fever, bartonellosis, and tularemia to pets. These diseases can cause a range of symptoms, including fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, and swollen lymph nodes.
In addition to their ability to spread disease, fleas can also cause anemia in pets, particularly in young or small animals. Anemia occurs when the fleas consume enough blood to cause a significant drop in the pet’s red blood cell count. This can lead to symptoms such as pale gums, weakness, and fatigue.
Although they prefer animals, fleas can bite humans as well. Flea bites can cause itching, redness, and swelling. In some cases, flea bites can also transmit diseases such as the bubonic plague, murine typhus, and cat scratch fever. While these diseases are rare, it’s important to take flea infestations seriously and take steps to treat them.
To protect both yourself and your household animals, it’s important to take preventative measures to manage fleas, such as treating pets with flea medication, regularly cleaning and vacuuming your home, and potentially using flea treatment products in your home.

Flea pest control usually takes a multi-pronged approach as fleas and their larvae attach to humans, your dog or cats, other animals, cloth, upholstery, bedding, basically anything in your house that is warm and moist. When feeding fleas are attracted, like mosquitos, to CO2, heat and movement.

How much does it cost to get rid of a flea infestation?
The cost to get rid of a flea infestation can vary depending on various factors, such as the severity of the infestation, the size of the affected area, and the methods used for treatment. Typically, professional flea extermination services can cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. It’s best to contact Pesti here and get a quote for a more accurate idea of total costs.
Why is it so hard to get rid of fleas?
It can be hard to get rid of fleas because they have a high reproductive rate, they can quickly infest an area, and they are tiny and hard to see. Additionally, fleas have evolved to be highly adaptable and resilient pests. They have a hard exoskeleton that protects them from many pesticides and they can become resistant to certain treatments over time. Fleas can also lay dormant in their cocoons for months, waiting for the right conditions to emerge and re-infest the area. To effectively get rid of fleas, it often requires a comprehensive approach that includes treating the infested pet, cleaning and treating the environment, and potentially multiple rounds of treatment. It’s recommended to consult with a professional pest control company to develop an effective flea control strategy.
How often should I vacuum to get rid of fleas?
To help get rid of fleas, it’s recommended to vacuum carpets, rugs, and furniture regularly, at least once a week. Vacuuming can help to remove adult fleas from your home. However, keep in mind that vacuuming alone may not completely eliminate a flea infestation, as fleas can nest in hard-to-reach areas, such as deep within carpets and cracks in flooring. Therefore, it’s important to take a comprehensive approach to flea control that includes washing bedding and linens in hot water, and potentially using flea control products in your home.
