Carlsbad Pest Control

FLEAS

Fleas are small and wingless. Their bodies are reddish brown in color and shiny, covered with tiny hair and are compressed to enable for easy movement through animal fur. Both pets and humans can suffer from flea bites. Despite the fact that most fleas don’t live on humans, they can bite humans bringing an uncomfortable itch or rash.

Flea Season

Flea season commonly peaks during the hot days, but these pests can actually be a constant problem. The time to start looking for them – and taking preventative measures to protect your pet from them is during the spring. But, if you see that your pet is scratching more often and with greater rush, you should check your pet immediately to determine whether or not fleas are present.
