Warm weather in Tennessee means flea weather in Tennessee. These wingless external parasites love the warm weather for breeding, jumping, and taking over your home if you’re not careful. The flea is a very small pest with the ability to create 400-500 offspring in their short 100-day lifespan. They are definitely not a pest you want to have in your home. Just because you are not a pet owner does not mean you shouldn’t be on the lookout for signs you may have a flea problem. Fleas can jump 6-7 inches in the air and can attach themselves to shoes, socks, pant legs and indoor /outdoor plants. Additionally, stray animals, wildlife and rodent issues may perpetuate a flea problem in or around your home. Flea control is crucial in the warmer months as populations can explode in a short period of time.
Signs to look for on your pet:
- Unusual scratching
- Flea Dirt – reddish brown flakes on your pets skin
- Hair Loss
Signs to look for in your home:
- Seeing small black spots in bedding, carpet, or blankets
- Noticing small red bumps on your skin – they are usually very itchy
