Four Things Every Homeowner Should Know About Fleas

August 15, 2017

Fleas are one of those pests that are easy to forget until the scratching begins and you are no longer able to ignore them. The bite of this tiny insect can send pets into a chewing, digging frenzy that causes their skin to erupt and their hair to fall out, and the result to people isn’t any better. Fleas will leave tiny, red welts around ankles, on legs, and on other exposed areas that can become infected when we scratch. And, the itching from a flea bite seems to last for a long period of time – sometimes for days. It would be hard to think of another pest that can cause such significant itching. When you consider the duration and intensity of their bite, not even a mosquito can compare! Once fleas appear, your only thought is how to get rid of them, and fast! But, there are some things that you should know about these tiny parasites before they decide to invade your home and make your life miserable! So, here are four things every homeowner should know about fleas.

Fall is fast approaching, whether we like it or not. It is always a little sad to see summer fade away, but the brilliant colors of Autumn make up for the warmer weather we may be missing out on. It is the time of the year when many of us are having furnaces cleaned, oil delivered, and wood chopped to combat the cold months ahead. It turns out that we are not the only ones getting ready. All over Louisville, folks are finding the outer walls of their homes being covered by hundreds of tiny Asian lady beetles who are also aware that winter will be along before we know it.

While folks all around Terre Haute are enjoying a summer of sun, hanging out by the lake or pool, and spending time with family and friends the very last thing that anyone wants to think about is fall. But, the countdown to fall can be measured in weeks instead of months. Fall is already on its way making its presence known not by the coloring of leaves but by the Halloween décor already making their way to department store shelves and the school shopping sales are already in progress. If you are a homeowner who has ever had to deal with overwintering pests in your walls, you know that now is the time to get a plan in place to make sure that they do not move in again when the weather begins to cool.
