Bed bugs are parasites that feed on blood, they require these blood meals to grow and reproduce. They live close to areas where people typically sleep, rest, or sit for long periods of time. Bed bugs are great “hitch hikers,” allowing them to travel long distances. They latch onto suitcases, clothes, and linens and can end up wherever these items are taken. This is why the spread of bed bugs occurs so easily. It’s often hard to identify bed bug bites, and they can easily be confused with bites from a different pest, making infestations difficult to detect and allowing populations to grow unnoticed.

Fleas are small, flightless parasites that feed on the blood of various warm-blooded animals, depending on the species, and do transmit diseases to their host. Although most people think of fleas as a problem only for the family pet, they can also bite humans and are the most common transmitter of the Rare Bubonic Plague. The plague persists in nature by infecting wild rodents—including mice, rats, squirrels, chipmunks, groundhogs, and prairie dogs—and their fleas. Fleas that have fed on infected rodents can spread the infection to humans and other animals by biting them. Humans can also get the plague through direct contact with infected animals, both living and dead. This includes handling infected animals, coming into contact with their tissues or bodily fluids, eating infected animals, being bitten or scratched by infected animals, or inhaling infectious respiratory droplets. People can also be exposed to plague via their pets if they’ve acquired fleas from infected wild animals or been infected themselves. Call us for all your flea solutions.
