Diseases Spread By Fleas
Flea bites often cause an allergic reaction, which includes swelling and red or pink bite marks. Flea allergies are the most common disease spread by fleas and can be very dangerous to your cat. One bite can result in Feline Anemia, leading to severe discomfort.
Fleas can make pets scratch excessively which leads to hair loss and skin irritation; they can also bite humans as well causing itching, redness and swelling of bites. If you suspect that your pet has been bitten by a flea, then it’s important to call a professional pest control company as soon as possible. So they can identify what species are present and make sure none of them are carrying disease.
An overview of the flea's life cycle
Fleas have a life cycle of 3-4 weeks. As an adult, fleas live on your pet, but lay eggs around your home. These eggs hatch into larvae that eat organic matter, like dried skin or pet fur. They spend 1-2 months as larvae before turning into pupae, which can last for several days to months before emerging as adults that can start the cycle all over again. In addition to making pets miserable, fleas can also cause severe itching and irritation for people who come into contact with them.
Fleas also have a peculiar diet that can be extremely damaging to your home. A flea will try to stay close to its host at all times, usually staying within an inch of its base. They can jump dozens of feet at a time and will even use silk lines or sticky liquids to get from one place to another.
Their life cycle allows them live near pet food or carpeted areas near pets where they may gather up fur and scales from their host, helping them blend into their surroundings when they want to attract nearby food sources. If you’ve noticed brown patches on your flooring that seem impossible to remove, your problem might be fleas, who eat away at fabric.
