How You Ended up With Fleas
More often than not, flea infestations occur from a pet dog or cat who brought them inside. These pests are attracted to hairy animals, making your pets the perfect place to land. Fleas attach to the animal when it's outside, infest its fur, and then ultimately the places that it sleeps indoors. While flea prevention for both the home and yard can be difficult, working with a professional pest control service to put a proactive plan in place can help lower the vulnerability of pet owners to experience an infestation.
Fleas also may have become a problem in your home due to a mouse that brought them inside. Because fleas depend on blood to survive, if the creature that brought it inside is removed from the home, the fleas that previously fed on it are forced to feed on pets and people.
