Contact Bay Pest if you need help with an active pest problem and need professional assistance. We will give you a rundown of your Bay Area pest control options and find a service plan that will best take care of fleas or other pests causing you trouble.

There Are Many Ways Fleas Can Infest Your Home

Fleas are not like other common pests in our area. They rarely invade homes by crawling through gaps, holes, or other openings. Instead, they look for furry animals to feed on. Most of the time, a flea's goal is not to break into your home. They just happen to be on the backs of cats, dogs, and other creatures that come inside. Once indoors, fleas will hop off and find shelter in other areas between meals.

It is important you know that fleas in The Bay Area do not need pets to get indoors. They regularly use wildlife invaders like rats, mice, and squirrels to invade. In fact, this is where many infestations start. 

To make sure fleas and the pests they ride in on stay out of your home, take some time to repair and seal up any entry points they might use to get inside. We also recommend investing in some form of flea control for your furry friends. 

Fleas In The Home Are A Health Hazard

There is no denying that fleas are annoying pests, especially when they are biting frequently. What you might not know is that these insects are also a serious threat to you, your family, and your pets. 

Now, not all fleas are dangerous; only ones that pick up blood-borne viruses from infected humans and animals. Some of the most common diseases that fleas carry and spread include murine typhus, tungiasis, and tularemia. These small insects also spread sickness to dogs, cats, and other pets. Canine bartonellosis and flea-related dermatitis are two health issues commonly spread by fleas to pets. 

If you want to avoid getting sick, you need to avoid flea bites. The best way you can do this is with professional pest control.
