Pet owners, in particular, are ultra-aware of fleas. But did you know your fur babies aren’t the only ones who can be bit? That’s right! Fleas can bite you, too. Here’s how you can prevent flea bites:
How to Prevent Flea Bites
Keep Your Pets Pest-Free
Use flea preventative measures for your pets who spend time outside. Check with your vet if you aren’t sure which option is right for you.
Clear Brush and Grass
Ticks love to hide in long grasses, fallen branches, and bushes. They hide where they feel safe, and latch onto humans and animals that walk by. Clearing out the clutter and keeping your grass at a reasonable length with regular mowing will reduce the number of hiding spots for ticks, and ultimately reduce ticks.
Keep Your Home Tidy
Vacuum regularly, especially on carpeted surfaces, where fleas find it easy to hide and breed.
Identify a Flea Infestation Fast
Watch to see if your pet starts scratching, biting, or licking themselves excessively. You can also walk across your carpet with white socks on; if you find black specs by the time you get to the other side of the room, you might be dealing with fleas.
