The cat flea is the most common type of pest flea in the United States, infesting not only cats, but dogs and other animals.

Although fleas prefer to feed on animals, when the pet is removed they will feed on human blood.  

The White Socks Test

After removing the pet for a few days, adult fleas will become very aggressive and jump all over one’s pants and socks within seconds of walking into a flea-infested room. This means that a great way to see if an area of the house has fleas is to walk around in white socks.

Life Cycle

Controlling fleas has everything to do with treating the entire flea life cycle.  

Once an interior infestation has begun, getting rid of the fleas becomes a professional job because the fleas are all in different stages of development.  

Many products will take care of the adults, but a few days later another stage of hundreds or thousands have become adults, and the cycle continues undeterred.

How They Come Inside On Animals

Fleas come in from the outside, typically by latching onto your dog, cat or other pet.

Make sure to always inspect your animals, especially during the warmer months. Use a veterinarian-grade flea treatment on all your pets.

If you see fleas on your pet, take care of them right away or it will require the help of a professional.

When your pet starts to get fleas, take them to the vet immediately, don’t wait. And if you notice more than the occasional flea, you will need to call a professional exterminator that can utilize the correct products to eliminate the problem.
