All About Fleas

How Do Flea Infestations Occur?

Flea infestations typically start when adult fleas hitch a ride into your home on pets, clothing, or even through an open door or window. Fleas can lay up to 50 eggs per day, which can quickly lead to an infestation if not promptly addressed. The eggs fall off the host and develop into larvae, which burrow into carpets, upholstery, and pet bedding. Over time, these larvae mature into adult fleas, perpetuating the cycle. 

Fleas thrive in warm, humid environments, making Sacramento's climate particularly conducive to their proliferation.

Are Fleas Dangerous to Humans?

Yes, fleas can be dangerous to humans. While they are primarily a threat to pets, fleas can also bite humans, causing itchy, red welts. These bites are not only uncomfortable but can also lead to allergic reactions in some people. More concerning is the potential for fleas to transmit diseases. Fleas are known carriers of the bacteria that cause cat scratch fever and murine typhus, and historically, they have been vectors for the plague. While such occurrences are rare today, the possibility of disease transmission makes flea control essential for safeguarding your health and that of your family.

All About Ticks

Types of Ticks Found in the Sacramento Area

In Sacramento, several tick species pose a threat to both humans and pets. The most common types include the Western Black-legged Tick, the American Dog Tick, and the Brown Dog Tick.

  • Western Black-legged Tick: Known for transmitting Lyme disease, this tick is commonly found in grassy and wooded areas.
  • American Dog Tick: This species is often found in areas with little tree cover and can transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
  • Brown Dog Tick: Prefers warmer climates and is known for infesting homes and kennels, making it a particular concern for pet owners.

Are Ticks Dangerous to Humans?

Ticks are indeed dangerous to humans because they can transmit various diseases through their bites. Lyme disease is the most well-known tick-borne illness, caused by the bite of an infected Western Black-legged Tick. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, and a characteristic "bull's-eye" rash. If left untreated, Lyme disease can lead to more severe health issues, including joint pain and neurological problems. Other tick-borne diseases, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and anaplasmosis, also pose significant health risks, underscoring the importance of effective tick control.

How to Safeguard Your Property from Flea and Tick Infestations

Preventing flea and tick infestations requires a multi-faceted approach. Here are some steps you can take to protect your property:

  1. Regularly Treat Pets: Use veterinarian-recommended flea and tick preventatives on your pets. Regular grooming and inspections can also help catch infestations early.
  2. Maintain Your Yard: Keep grass trimmed, remove leaf litter, and create a buffer zone between wooded areas and your lawn to reduce tick habitats.
  3. Use Preventative Treatments: Apply flea and tick treatments to your yard, especially in areas where pets play.
  4. Clean Your Home: Vacuum carpets, furniture, and pet bedding frequently to remove flea eggs and larvae.
  5. Professional Pest Control: Have Pest Pros Pest Solutions perform regular inspections and treatments to ensure your home remains flea and tick-free.
