Fleas can be handled by your Tulsa pest control company. Fleas are a blood feeding parasite that feed on many mammals. But they especially love the blood of the mammals that we use as pets, such as dogs and cats. In addition to this, they can feed on us. They can also feed on squirrels, mice and rats, gerbils and hamsters, weasels or any other mammals that they can find. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at fleas, their life cycle and what you and your Tulsa pest control company can do to protect yourself, and your loved ones from these parasitic pests.


Because fleas feed off of our blood, they are in direct contact with our immune system. In many cases they can spread diseases through their bite that are severely injuring to us and our pets. The black plague is one of the most famous diseases passed by the bite of a flea. This disease ravaged Europe in the middle ages, killing millions of people. It was a bacteria found in many rats that was transferred to fleas when they were bitten by these rats. Then these fleas would bite humans passing the bacterium onto us. Today, this disease is treatable if it’s found early enough and is still with us. Often in the southern part of the United States, small flareups of the black plague will happen.

Our pets are not immune to these diseases as well. Tapeworm is often spread through the bite of a flea. The tapeworm eggs are past from the insect to your pet through that bite. They will set up shop in the digestive system and grow into a large wormlike snake, making its way through their intestines. This is a disease that you’ll need to get in contact with your veterinarian in order to get rid of. 

Anemia is another disease that can be a problem, especially in small dogs and cats. When too many fleas are biting your pet, they can draw so much blood that it causes your pet to have a low blood count. This can be life-threatening in them, and a very dangerous time for you and your pet. Contact your veterinarian if you believe you may have a pet suffering from anemia.
