Fleas usually infest plants and animals. No matter how meticulously you take care of your pet, it might still catch skin infections and insects from nearby animals and places. They spread from your pet to anything that resembles the skin of your pet. This includes bed linen, carpets, curtains and most fabrics.
Moreover, your house can still be plagued by fleas even if you do not have a pet. The only blessing when it comes to these creatures is that they are wingless. But that is no cause to relax. These small and brownish creatures can jump long distances and live underneath the fur undetected. They live off the blood of their hosts and can cause severe itchiness and infections.

What Are the Flea Infestation Hazards?
Dealing with insects is not an easy job, they come in undetected and camouflage under the fur of your beloved pet only to cause painful rashes and severe itching and skin infections. Fleas are also harmful to human beings and can cause deadly diseases such as plague, murine typhus, tungiasis and other allergic reactions.
While your pet desperately tries to attain some relief, they vigorously scratch their body. This leads to hair loss and it is such heartbreak to see mere clumps of fur sticking to their bodies. The insects cannot be combed out without proper treatment. Their six elongated feet clings to the fur and the pests are hard, if not impossible to dislodge. If you manage to spot one, they crawl off and hide in another clump of fur.
The blood loss weakens their immune system. The bites lead to several diseases as well. However, that isn’t the worst bit yet. The scariest are the females who burrow into the feet and begin to breed there. Not only does your body provide them their food, they turn it into a complete survival ecosystem as well.
