Fleas are a parasitic insect that attack our pets, but can be taken care of by your Tulsa exterminator. These blood feeding insects, use your our dogs and cats as host animals in order to survive. They will feed off their blood, mate and lay eggs, and use their body heat in order to overwinter. This happens on the host animal which can be your pets. They make for an uncomfortable situation that not safe for you or your animals. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at fleas, their lifecycle and what you and your Tulsa exterminator can do to protect yourself from fleas and other parasites.


Because of the way that fleas draw blood from the skin, they can backwash back into their host animal. This means that diseases can be passed from a flea back into you, or your pets. Canine mauritius, anemia, and black plague are all diseases that can be passed from a flea to, a host. While fleas don’t usually host on humans, they can still bite and survive off of our blood. It’s important to keep these insects away from you and your loved ones in order to keep these diseases from infecting you. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help with fleas.


While the lifecycle of a flea happens off of the host animal, the egg, larva, and pupa are all done usually in the carpeted area around your pets bedding in high traffic areas. But once they emerge from their cocoon as a full grown adult, they need to find a way to get onto your pets. The number one way that they’ll do this is by jumping. Fleas are capable of jumping extremely large distances and heights, in order to land upon a host animal. They have very powerful hind legs that are geared together in order to evenly distribute the power that they exert in order to jump. This gives them the ability to perfectly aim and stick the landing. Contact your Tulsa exterminator for help.
