Fleas are one of the most common parasitic insects in the world. They can be transmitted to humans through a bite or aerosols emitted by an infected tick. Typically, they are transmitted by the tick bite, although they can also infect humans through dust or contact with infected animals. They are most common in coastal regions and are often associated with a high density of rats. They can also be carried by humans when they wear their shoes indoors. The larvae develop inside warm places where they can lay eggs. During this process, the parasite population continues to multiply exponentially.
Fleas feed on warm blood and can be harmful to humans and animals. Fleas can also cause anemia, skin infections, and hair loss. In addition, a flea infestation can lead to excessive scratching and impetigo. It’s important to treat fleas right away, and to prevent them from spreading to others.
Flea bites can be extremely painful for some people, while others can simply experience an itchy itch. Most flea bites are small red dots that appear on the skin and feel slightly itchy. People with allergies may have an extreme reaction to flea bites, but this is rare.
Fleas can cause a wide range of problems, including anxiety and phobias. They can transmit numerous diseases to humans and animals, including tapeworms. If you notice that your pet is suffering from fleas, you should contact a professional pest control company. The only way to completely eradicate fleas is to rid the area of the infestation.
