how to tell if you have a flea infestation

Pet parents are all aware of the possible nightmare that is a flea infestation. The sooner you identify a problem, the easier it will be to take care of. Learn how to tell if you have a flea infestation.

How to Tell If You Have a Flea Infestation

Your Pets Are Itching Excessively

This is often the tell-tale sign of fleas. If Fido gets fleas, your home does too.

You Are Oddly Itchy

Fleas will bite humans, causing red spots surrounded by haloes that are extremely itchy. These bites will most often be on your feet and ankles because the fleas stick close to the ground, but will make their way on the couch or bed if Spot gets up too.

Coffee Ground-Like Messes

If you find little black specs on your pet, in your carpet, or on your couch, these could be flea feces. Keep in mind this doesn’t necessarily mean fleas are your problem as many pests’ waste looks the same.

Your Socks Aren’t as Clean as Usual

Your white socks can tell a lot about the cleanliness of your house. If you walk across your carpet, take a good look at your socks. You might find some fleas hitched a ride! In fact, that’s one of the easiest ways to discover your home is infested.

Your Lawn is Unruly

Fleas thrive in locations that are dark and moist. If you’re not mowing your lawn regularly, you could be attracting them. You might be able to identify their presence in your yard if you find peppery specks on your clothes or shoes after spending time outside.
