Fleas aren't just a problem for homes with pets like cats or dogs. While it's true that fleas prefer to feed on animals with lots of hair and fur to cling to, fleas will also bite humans and can spread throughout a property regardless of the presence of animals.

This is why you should take flea control seriously and learn how to properly respond to a flea problem and how you can prevent them from getting into your Del Rio home. At Gold Star Exterminators, we can help you deal with fleas and many other common home invaders. Get started on pest control in Del Rio by contacting us today.

What Are Fleas?

Fleas are tiny parasitic bugs that feed on the blood of animal hosts, including humans. Flea bites lead to itchy welts on your skin that get more uncomfortable the more skin they cover.

To avoid a flea infestation, you need to be able to identify fleas and the signs of their activity.

Here are some traits you should keep in mind when trying to identify fleas in your house:

  • Size & Color: Fleas are tiny brown insects, no bigger than an apple seed. Since these pests are so small, you're unlikely to spot fleas unless you're specifically looking for them. This is why thorough flea inspections play an important part in helping you avoid the health risks these parasites pose.
  • Hiding Spots: Fleas like to nest in cushions, piles of clothing, bedding, and other warm areas close to where you will be so they can feed on you throughout the day.
  • Eggs: Fleas lay yellowish-colored eggs that can be found in clusters, usually around the same kinds of nesting grounds we mentioned above.

Don't let fleas invade your Del Rio home. Contact Gold Star Exterminators right away if you notice signs of a flea infestation.

How Dangerous Is It To Have Fleas In My House?

Sure, fleas get on people and bite us, but you may be wondering what the big deal is. It's just a little bug bite, right? How bad could it be? Well, anyone who's suffered from a flea infestation knows just how uncomfortable the experience can be, especially since they aren't easy to eliminate and can therefore become an ongoing problem.

But most people aren't aware that fleas are capable of much more than just causing bite marks on the skin. Like other parasites, fleas can transmit diseases and parasitic infections directly into your bloodstream. The most common is flea-borne typhus, which can contribute to flu-like symptoms and rashes.

To avoid the dangers of having fleas in your Del Rio home, get started on inspections and treatments from Gold Star Exterminators.

I've Tried Everything, Why Won't These Fleas Go Away?

Due to the health threats they pose, people often try to deal with fleas on their own. Maybe you think the process will be faster, simpler, or more affordable if you just do some cleaning around your home or go with flea control products you buy from the store.

Unfortunately, flea infestations are almost impossible to completely eradicate on your own. Plus, people can track these tiny parasites without even realizing it, making it tough to guarantee total prevention without expert help.

That's why Gold Star Exterminators offers both indoor and outdoor flea treatments that not only eliminate the entire population but actually provide longer-term protection against future problems. This is the most guaranteed form of protection against fleas you'll find.
