Pet Owners Beware: Summer Is Flea Season

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Summer is the time you love to get outdoors with your pets to enjoy the sun and warm breezes. However, you and your animals are not the only ones that love summer. Fleas love the season as well!

The summer season is flea season in the northern hemisphere. And whether you know it or not, fleas do not discriminate like so many people think they do. Your dog or cat could be a victim of a flea infestation even if you live in the most pristine and well-kept home. Fleas are not exclusively the domain of poorly maintained properties.

You should also note that fleas are not picky when it comes to who they bite. Fleas are parasites that are just as happy to take a chunk out of your leg as they are to take up residence on the back of your dog. It is best not to play games with fleas. At the first sign of infestation, call Control Services to come deal with it.

Here are some signs to look out for in your pets and your home:
  1. constant, unexplainable scratching
  2. tiny, black specks in the animal's fur
  3. tiny, black bugs jumping across carpets and other flooring.

Small bite marks on your legs, ankles and other parts of your body will also appear if a flea infestation is severe enough. The bites look similar to mosquito bites, except that they also bear a single, reddish penetration point where the flea has made contact with the skin.

Please be aware that a flea infestation can lead to other physical problems for your cats and dogs. Therefore, even if Pest Control Services comes out to treat your property for fleas, you will still need to have your animals treated by a veterinarian.
