You want your home to be a safe haven for your family and pets. But if you have a problem with fleas, it can cause significant discomfort and health issues for everyone in the home. Having a flea infestation problem, can overtake your home, causing extreme discomfort for you, your family and pets. Fleas may start off living in your pet’s fur, causing them to scratch incessantly. But they can also take up residence in your carpets, furniture and clothing.
Fleas live outside in grass and leaves, but at the slightest sensation or touch of a mammal’s presence, they jump onto their victim and stay there. Fleas can jump onto shoes, socks and clothing, as well as into the fur of your pets. Flea eggs tend to drop off to land in your carpet or furniture. You, yourself, may unwittingly bring fleas into your home by carrying them from any place that has a flea infestation problem. Once attached to their food source, fleas will stay there until they are scratched off, die of old age or are removed in some other way. Fleas can live in almost any environment except full sun or extreme cold.
