Quarterly Pest Control Fleas Springfield, Missouri and Ozark Area
Pest control of fleas is keeping professional exterminators busy in the Springfield, Missouri and Ozark area. That’s because this is prime-time for fleas and without implementing some type of pest control, they can quickly get out of hand – including infiltrating your home. Don’t wait another day to call for help as soon as you discover fleas on your pets, in your yard or inside your home.
Flea bites leave tiny red bite marks (usually on the feet – at first), itch like crazy, and in some cases, raised welts or an angry rash will develop. While the itchiness and bite marks will slowly disappear without any long term effects on your health, there can be other, more serious, side effects from flea bites.
You may not know that fleas are recognized to be disease and parasite vectors. Although the number of flea-borne diseases is relatively minor in North America, there is more potential now due to more people traveling internationally, in addition to warmer temperatures due to expected climate changes. Not only can flea bites cause allergic reactions in some people and pets, but there are also several different possible diseases they can transmit.
- The Bubonic plague is the most well-known disease transmitted by fleas. The plague is carried by rodents and transmitted to fleas, and people and animals are infected when the fleas bite them.
- Murine typhus is a rare disease that occurs when fleas become infected by the rats. Every year a few cases are reported in the U. S., mostly originating in southwestern states. Unfortunately, pets can bring Bubonic plague and murine typhus-infected fleas into your home.
- Tularemia is a potentially serious illness that occurs naturally in the U.S. It is found mostly in rodents and can be transferred to humans by an infected flea or tick bite.
- Fleas are known to transmit parasites such as tapeworm. Adult fleas infected with tapeworm may be accidentally ingested by cats or dogs. If you notice your pet is constantly scratching or biting frantically at its fur, you may have a flea problem. As for people, they will usually first notice their feet are itchy, and on closer inspection will see the red bite marks or a rash.
