hi, I bought a sofa (floor model) at a big furniture store…got home; wash it down,vacuum it and found a little pet hair; about 2 weeks later i just started getting ichy on the arm and legs(don’t know if it is all in my head as i am dark skin and i don’t see any bumps) so today i decide to do some deeper vacuuming and find some animal hair and i don’t have pets.and i don’t know how to go about checking for fleas? please can u help me?
I’ve treated the yard for fleas, but my dog keeps getting reinfested. Could rats in my garage or backyard reinfest the yard with fleas?
If you take some time to read through our extensive FLEA CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn the most favorite place for fleas to stay is on the “host” animal they target. Amongst the favorite host’s for fleas will be dogs, cats, squirrels, rats and mice. In fact, pretty much any animal in the yard could have fleas during the summer or warm months. But as our online article explains, fleas don’t want to leave their host animal as this is where they get both food and shelter. In fact most fleas will live their entire life on whatever animal they first find. Additionally, this life is quite short and in most cases will be less than a week. All the while they’ll be laying eggs on the pet which will live out their life cycle right there under all the fur and pet hair.
