What Is a Flea?
Fleas are tiny little insects often associated with harassing cats and dogs. They have hard, shiny bodies with flat sides and large, powerful legs. Fleas are known to bite and cause itching in pets, but they can also leave irritating bite marks on people as well, and some are even known to carry bubonic plague.
The three main types of fleas in the U.S. are cat fleas, the kind most commonly found on cats and dogs, dog fleas, which aren’t actually common among domestic dogs, and ground squirrel fleas, which are more efficient carriers of disease.

Q : How Do I Know If I Have Fleas in Jacksonville, FL?
There are several notable signs of fleas in your home. If you have pets, they’ll probably give you the first indication of fleas by excessively scratching, licking, and biting their bodies. If they start losing their fur, that’s another good indication of a flea problem. If you don’t have pets, small black specks in carpets are signs of fleas.
You may also find itchy, red bumps primarily on your legs and ankles in a way somewhat similar to bedbug outbreaks. If you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to call a pest professional to take care of your problem. PURCOR’s pest experts are a great choice for dealing with flea problems.
