Getting Rid of Fleas
Fleas can be a pain for many people. Not only do they make the most annoying sounds, but that unique jumping action that fleas do when they are biting your skin to draw blood can be unsightly. Even more scary is looking at the large sac of blood in the flea, which is scary in itself.
What we know about fleas is beyond what they do, the problems that they cause to various living organisms can be damaging.
Take pets for example. For animals such as cats and dogs, fleas can be an unpleasant experience for them. They will be constantly being scratching their coats if the fleas are not removed before the fleas start laying their larvae and eggs on them. Not only that, but fleas can also carry diseases that can make your pets sick and require medical attention.

For humans, the risks are less for them in terms of catching diseases from fleas, but there are still severe risks. Yes, like your pets, you get bitten by fleas and it is painful. Diseases such as bubonic plague (Which is very rare, but possible to be spread through fleas), can be carried from fleas into humans. Ultimately though fleas are a pain and they need to be dealt with as swiftly as possible.
So in reality, the risks for pets are higher than humans if they have fleas. But knowing whether you have fleas in your home or not is another. You might mistake the flea bites as mosquito bites. Here, then, is how you can identify flea bites and the symptoms associated with these bites.
Judging whether you have been bitten or not is crucial.
You can generally tell whether you have been bitten by a flea by the size and shape. The bite area is smaller than the bite of a mosquito but they appear as small, red bumps. These bites can be found all around the knees, legs, armpit areas etc. in clusters of four or in a straight line.
In terms of the bite itself, there is normally a bite halo that is associated with the bite centre.
One of the things that one must remember about flea bites is that they are very itchy, painful and you can get a rash from the bite. You can also develop hives from the bite as well.
If you notice all of these symptoms, it is most likely that you have been bitten by a flea. If in doubt, try and find some in your home. Normally you can distinctly see them because they jump (they have no wings). So if you see them jumping in your home, you need to act as quickly as possible because the fleas can lay eggs and hatch larvae in a short space of time.
