Signs You Have a Flea Infestation

cat-scratching

Most pet owners are aware of the possibility of a dreaded flea infestation, especially when Fido or Whiskers spends time outside. Here are the signs fleas are plaguing your house:

Your Pets Are Itching Excessively

This is often the tell-tale sign of fleas. Watch your pet’s behavior and if you see more scratching than normal, be sure to inspect further. Fleas are happy to hitch a ride into your home on your four-legged baby, spelling trouble and frustration for your family.

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┬ámean 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.
