When you hear the word "flea," do you think of a pet problem or a people problem? Most often, when people hear about fleas, they think about pets. Although it is true that fleas prefer our furry friends over us, it does not change the fact that when they are on our loved companions, everyone suffers. If up to this point, you have never had to deal with fleas in your own home, we hope that you never have to. In fact, we are here today to give you tips on how to keep unwanted fleas away. 


Why Fleas Are Such A Difficult Pest To Deal With

Before we say anything else, let us start with one word to help you understand how difficult fleas are to handle—fur. If you have ever had a pet with fleas, you fully understand the challenge of getting them flea-free. Many pet owners will avoid the frustration all together and have them shaved just to make sure they are entirely free of fleas. 

Unfortunately, there is another fur like thing in most homes that fleas love to hide in, and that makes them a nightmare to treat—carpet. Although fleas cannot get their needed blood meals from your living room carpet, they sure can hide there until something warm-blooded walks by. There is a reason why store-bought flea control is called a “flea bomb”.


Tips To Prevent Fleas Before They Are Able To Get Inside

The good news with fleas is that they are not that difficult to prevent. All you need is a little vigilance and help from your local veterinarian.

First, you need protection for your furry friends. Your local vet will help you decide on the best protection for your pets. They will recommend either a flea/tick collar or another form of flea prevention.

Next, check your pets before letting them in after your walks.

Finally, keep your yard well maintained and clutter-free. This will help deter fleas, and the wild animals they ride on.
