SOMETHING BUGGING YOU?

Fleas can be one of the hardest pests to get rid of. Spectrum Pest Control has their hands full hundreds of calls from the Butler PA Their eggs are almost impermeable to any insecticide. They will multiply so fast, you may not know what happened. Fleas are one of the most obnoxious parasites in the United States. They are a wingless insect that seems to withstand almost anything short of squashing them. Fleas are very hard to get rid of once they have taken hold, however flea exterminators in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania can help you remove them from your house quickly.
Fleas are normally very tiny, barely getting over 1mm in size. Normally they are dark in color and will have mouth parts that are made for puncturing their host and sucking out their blood. Female fleas can lay over 5,000 eggs during their lifetime, which is only about 2-3 months from the day they hatch. Their eggs are tiny, white and oval shaped that can normally only be seen through a microscope.
Fleas are not picky, they will attach to anything that has blood in them. With or without fur or hair, they will still find places to hide so they can live. An fully develop adult flea can live for weeks without a host, while a new adult flea must have a blood meal within a weak to sustain life.
The life cycle of a normal flea is in four stages. First they develop from eggs into larva; the larva will then develop into a pupa. They will emerge from the pupa as an adult flea and must find a blood meal quickly. The female will normally lay twenty or so eggs on the host for hatching. These eggs are not attached to anything, so they are easily transferred to other objects the host is in contact with. The flea eggs can hatch anywhere from two day to two weeks, depending on the circumstances of the host. The larva will emerge looking for food to eat. This will normally consist of dead insects, feces or vegetable matter for food. They are blind and will stay in dark areas until further developed. Once they have developed they will enter the pupa stage, which is like a cocoon type matter. The adult will emerge from the cocoon and begin to search for food.
Treating Flea Bites
Fleas can carry a variety of diseases with them from host to host. Not only do they carry several different types of viral and bacterial infections, they can also carry protozoans and helminthes infections. These are a little more complex to treat, but a professional doctor can assist you with getting rid of them.
There are rare instances where one flea bite transferred any of these infections. Being bitten by several fleas raises these odds and will put the host at a higher risk of infection. Animals and humans can contract any of the infections that fleas carry.
Getting Rid of Fleas
Spectrum Pest Control offers a very affordable flea control program. If you do not want to hire an exterminator, there are many DIY options. Liquid insecticides and flea powders are the best way to get rid of fleas. You should retreat areas every week for the first month in order to eliminate any new eggs that hatch. Make sure to vacuum any areas that you have seen dead fleas in.
