Fleas are a common pest problem in homes especially when cats or dogs are present. Not only are they a concern for pets but they are also bite humans. Fleas are usually found in the homes with pets but they can also be a problem for new homeowners that move into previously infested homes and apartments.
Fleas do not discriminate and may also be carried on other animals like rabbits, rats, mice, foxes, and livestock such as pigs.
Pest control is important not only because of the discomfort bites cause to pets and people but also because fleas are carriers of the tapeworm parasite.
