Cat Fleas in North Carolina
Cat fleas, the most common flea species in the U.S., exhibit a unique preference for hosts like dogs, cats, and even humans. With the ability to maintain their life cycles as parasites on carnivores and omnivores, cat fleas pose a persistent threat in North Carolina.
At Clegg’s Pest Control, we understand the urgency of addressing fleas before an infestation begins, and our services are tailored to your specific needs to ensure you, your pets, and the rest of your family remain flea-free.
Identifying Cat Fleas
Cat fleas, measuring only one to two millimeters in length, are adept at remaining hidden while infesting both pets and humans. Recognizing these pests is crucial for effective control, allowing you to stop the spread before it becomes an infestation. With the help of our pest control experts, learn to identify cat fleas, their distinctive features, and the potential harm they can cause to your home.
Signs of a Cat Flea Infestation
Spotting signs of a cat flea infestation early on is key to preventing the situation from escalating. From their rapid transition from pupal stage to host to the unmistakable reddish-brown hue, fleas are not hard to identify, but they are hard to spot. Their small size makes finding individual fleas extremely difficult, but these key signs can let you know if they are present, even if you cannot see the fleas themselves:
- Pet scratching is a clear sign of fleas. If your pets are scratching themselves frequently, check under their fur to check for fleas.
- Flea dirt is droppings fleas leave behind. Check your pet for small reddish-brown specs and any fleas nearby.
- Small red bites can emerge when fleas bite humans. Check yourself for flea bites, especially if your pet sleeps in your bedroom.
