Fleas live on a host animal, such as a cat or dog, and can lay up to 25 eggs a day. Most flea eggs fall out of the pet’s coat and thus spread around the house, where the eggs hatch 2-10 days after. The fleas can thus spread quickly, which makes pest control necessary.
A hungry flea can easily bite a human being, however, the pest rarely resides on a human being after the prayer. The flea only sucks a little blood, leaving a red, itchy mosquito-like bud.
The itch is due to the venom that the flea is depleting the skin with ifm. the bite, and often you will find several red buds in clusters, as the flea will bite several times in a row.
How to find the fleas
The easiest way to see if your pet is attacked by fleas is to nest the animal’s coat with a close comb. The finished coat can advantageously be placed in a clear plastic bag, after which the hair is examined for fleas. This way, you also avoid the pests jumping from your pet and onto yourself during the rescue – a flea can jump up to 30 cm!
If there are 1.5-3 mm large female lobes, dark male lobes, white pearl-shaped eggs and dark comma or spiral excrements in the coat, the pet is attacked by pests and a flea cage must be started. However, it is not enough to give your pets a round, also the house must have a game of pest control, as the fleas can hide in the home’s hooks.
How to get rid of the fleas
It is very important to check your pet frequently during the flea season as it is easier to get rid of the pests the sooner you discover them. You can also prevent flea infestation with drops, tablets, injections or the like, so the fleas are kept completely away and pest control can be avoided.
If the pests have already been caught, there is no way around the pest control. You can treat your pet with either collars, shampoos or drops, while the home itself can be treated with pesticides that kill both eggs, larvae and adult fleas.…
