The Lifecycle Of Fleas In Orlando

The flea life cycle is fairly simple to understand, but it is very short, which makes it hard to control in your home. A flea will hitchhike on different mammals, as well as shoes, clothes, and blankets, and then as the host travels around, the fleas deposit eggs which can stay on the host or fall off, and the flea will also jump to new hosts to do the same thing over again.

The fleas in your house can live for about 100 days, and in that time period, they can produce almost 2,000 different offspring, meaning that the flea life cycle is constant and it is hard to intervene and stop it. This makes flea control very difficult, and a flea can lead to hundreds, which can lead to a lot of flea bites as well as potential diseases being spread.

The Diseases Fleas In Orlando Can Transmit

Fleas are blood-sucking parasites, and to get this blood they attach themselves to hosts, whether that is you or your pets or other animals on your property, and then they bite you. The problem is that when you do have flea bites, these nasty pests are potentially exposing you to dangerous diseases. Some of the diseases that fleas spread are:

  • Bubonic plague
  • Murine typhus
  • Tungiasis
  • Tularemia
  • Bartonellosis

Fleas can also transfer tapeworms and potentially cause anemia in pets that they attach to. This is why it is incredibly important that you start proper flea control the minute that you see any fleas in your house. 

Natural Flea Prevention Tips For Orlando Homes

Thankfully, there are a variety of steps that you can take to protect your home from these nasty invaders. One of the first and most important steps that you can take is cleaning and vacuuming frequently. By keeping your home clean and tidy, any potential fleas have almost nowhere to hide in your home, meaning that it will be much easier to spot them and stop them before the situation gets out of hand.

Another incredibly important measure you can take is keeping an eye on your pets, as fleas can be transferred to them easily and then quickly overtake your home. By properly grooming your pet regularly and preventing them from going into any overgrowth on your property, you are better protected from fleas. Also, consider consulting with your veterinarian about year-round flea control for your pets.

In addition to this, overgrowth such as overgrown trees and shrubs or piles of leaves on your property should be eliminated as they are sites that can easily harbor fleas as well as other pests.
