Are Fleas Dangerous?
As annoying as fleas are, they are not especially dangerous to humans. They may cause extended itching that could get infected with excessive scratching. In some people and pets with existing allergies, fleas may cause respiratory illnesses and complications.
How Do I Get Rid Of Fleas?
If you have pets, getting rid of fleas involves keeping up with your pets' flea and tick medications, as well as vacuuming daily (and emptying the bag or cartridge immediately). You can also take steps to prevent fleas such as keeping your yard trimmed and keeping landscaping away from the side of your house. Unfortunately, these prevention measures are not 100% effective, and you may need professional flea control treatments from Lindsey Pest Services to fully eliminate and prevent future flea infestations.
