Fleas can be eliminated from your homes, yards and pets with you and the help of your Tulsa pest control company. Fleas are a blood sucking insect that can find the energy needed to complete their lifecycle from many different mammals. Their favorites are cats and dogs which happened also to be our favorites to be pets. This means your pets are very susceptible to getting attacked by fleas. They can bring these insects into your home and then you also can be bitten by fleas. In this article, let us take a good hard look at fleas, their lifecycle, and what you and your Tulsa pest-control company can do to protect yourselves from these insects.


When fleas bite, they have a bad habit of backwashing back into the organism that they’re biting. This means that in this exchange, there can be diseases that are pass back-and-forth between the flea and its host animal. One of the most famous of these diseases was the black plague. This is a disease that ravaged Europe throughout the Middle Ages. It was a bacterium that was commonly found in rats. As fleas would bite the rats, they would pick up the bacterium, and then the fleas were going to bite humans and pass it on to us. Millions of people died because of this disease. Contact your Tulsa exterminator to get the black plague out of your home.

There are many other diseases that cannot only affect you, but also affect your pets. Anemia is a problem when there is extensive flea issues in and around your home. This is where there’s so many fleas that you actually have a low blood count in your pet. This usually happens with smaller pets, such as kittens and puppies with extreme amounts of fleas in the neighboring areas. Additional, tapeworms are an issue. Tapeworms can be spread through the bite of a flea. There are hosts of other diseases that can use the flea as a vector to get where it needs to be to harm you, your loved ones and your pets. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help and keep these insects away from you and your family.


The best place to start when it comes to dealing with fleas is your veterinarian. They’re going to be able to prescribe the right flea control for your pet. This is very important to get the right stuff to get these insects off of your animal. After that’s done, you will often find that fleas will find a way to your home. Amassing around bedding and in high traffic areas, they will eventually go on to adulthood, and start to bite whatever they can. If your pets become off-limits, this is usually when you start to notice because then they’re biting you. This is where your Tulsa Pest control company comes in.
