Understanding the Fleas in Melbourne
Fleas are wingless creatures and are reddish brown in color. They are covered with microscopic hair and are capable of jumping.
The adult fleas feed on the host blood; the hosts can be any hairy animal such as cats, dogs, rabbits, mice, squirrels and other domesticated animals while the larvae feed on the fecal matter. Fleas have a range of species and almost all are found to be parasites. They reproduce fast and their eggs may be found on carpets, rugs, beds, furniture etc. These hatch within two days and soon complete their life cycle.
Are the Fleas Harmful?
To some extent yes because they are sanguivorous that is they feed on blood. When the weather starts warming up, fleas run rampant in your yards and bite your pets. They cause following problems:
- Fleas bite the host and lead to the scratchy, red and swollen skin.
- If your pets are allergic to the saliva of fleas, then they will scratch the skin that may lead to swelling and welts on the skin. Constant itching and scratching can cause the development of hot spots on the skin.
- If the pets accidentally swallow the fleas from their skin, then their intestine may get infected by tapeworms. Fleas are dangerous parasites that reside on the skin of fleas.
- If left unnoticed, fleas may cause anemia and your pets will suffer from pale gums, low body temperature, and the likes.
